Regional Championship Meet Results

The team had incredible results at regionals over the weekend and every swimmer received personal best times. They’ve been training really hard for the past 4 months with early morning dryland training followed by a swim and another practice in the evening. Their hard work truly paid off this weekend and it was very rewarding for the coaches to watch the swimmers put everything they had into their races and knowing that they gave it their all. We also had lots of new swimmers this year who signed up and had no idea how to swim or compete and we’re extremely proud of how far each one of them has come. Not only did they gain valuable skills in the water and became stronger swimmers, but they learnt how to be a team player, set goals, and strive for success.
