Swimmers Brave a Haunted Forest! Around 35 Excel swimmers spent an evening together at Millers Thrillers Haunted woods in Columbia, TN. The walk began in a small room with shifting floors and quickly progressed into zombies, monsters, chainsaws and even a flag football-like game with creepy clowns. All of our swimmers were brave (some in their own way) and made it out unharmed. Thanks to Coach Kirby who joined us and was there to hold hands when things got really scary!
