College Signing Day For Excel Athletes Congratulations to our 3 seniors that signed to swim for college teams next year. For many athletes, continuing to swim in college is a goal that they work towards for many years and it’s truly amazing to see when that all comes together. While these school ceremonies are about all the hard work these swimmers have put in over the years, it was great to have younger teammates and siblings at each one to help celebrate this huge accomplishment. Congratulations to these swimmers for...

What a long strange year it was! The 2020-21 season was a difficult one for all of us as we attempted to get through our pandemic. While everyone was affected, the impact on swim teams across the country was tangible. With pool closures, meet cancellations and declining rosters, the future of our sport was very much up in the air. For Excel Aquatics specifically, we were very fortunate to have a partner in Williamson County Parks and Recreation that enabled us to get back into the water as early as...

When the dust settled on Sunday, we were thrilled to see that we finished 1st in the 11-12 Girls, 2nd in the 11-12 Boys, 13-14 Girls, 13-14 Boys...
