We are so excited that almost the entire club swam at the Marlin Sprint Distance Invitational this weekend.  Lots of new swims and lots of personal bests.  Coach Pamela is especially proud of those Skimmers who stepped out of their comfort zone to swim new/different and distance events.  Complete list of results can be found here.  Here are a few of the highlights:

Special thanks to Dana D. for her help on deck to manage the team while the coach focused on the swims.  We really appreciate you giving your day.

Finally – Based on feedback from families, and the new qualifying time achieved, we will not be attending the Brandon Spring Invitational.  We have a number of qualifiers for the Golden Plains Invitational (the week after), and this gives those swimmers a weekend off before the GPI.

Great job to all our swimmers!  We would love to have this many swimmers come to every meet!  Mark your calendars now.  Bison Sprint on May 13th…  Finally – the Where Friends Meet on June 3rd and 4th.  Its our last meet of the regular season and we would love to have the entire club be part of this meet!
