VSC moved forward with its 2023 competitive swimming campaign this past weekend with a trip down to Tualatin, OR to compete in the 2023 TTSC Winter Qualifier. And despite the meet taking place only 1 week after our last meet, which can pose a problem for some competitors, our VSC swimmers were very much up to the challenge. New lifetime best times were, once again, the order of this meet for nearly all of our VSC swimmers. At the top of the list - the very top - was our...

VSC opened its 2023 competitive swimming campaign this past Saturday with a New Year's bang! 15 VSC swimmers made the 1 hour trip down to Hood River, OR to compete in the 2023 HRVST Winter Invite.

8 of VSC Santa's elves rode the jolly sleigh down to the Canby Municipal Pool this past weekend to race in the 2022 Canby IMX/IMR Challenge. And with Christmas now just right around the corner, our swimming elves used the pool as if it were Santa's workshop, hammering, pounding, chipping, chaffing and scraping away many new lifetime best swims, like so many new Christmas gifts left under the Christmas tree for Coach. The things Santa's elves have to do to get ready for Christmas! Our VSC Swimmer of the Meet...
