Thank you, everyone.
Coaches
 
Swimmers of the Meet: The diver of the meet is Charlotte Schofield .  Charlotte faced a challenging week including a diver injury, but she persevered. She showed bravery and determination as an exemplary teammate.  Good job, Charlotte! For the Boy's team, the swimmer of the meet was Brayden Haar . He  won his race in the 25 Breastroke and demonstrated a lot of growth in what he has worked on technique-wise at practice. He put a lot of effort into each race he swam Saturday, and also did a great job maintaining a positive attitude and cheering for his teammates throughout the meet :)  
Congratulations to all of the swimmers who attended Saturday's meet! We had a lot of great swims from both the boys and girls team. The athletes also supported and cheered for one another during the meet, which was great to see. Congratulations to the girls' swimmer of the meet: Anna Pylychik. She fought through some nervousness, as this was her very first meet, and swam very well in her events. She also cheered for the other swimmers.

Personal Best Ribbons:
We like to celebrate the accomplishments of our swimmers by giving them "Personal Best" Ribbons.  If they made any improvement in an event or dive, we will acknowledge that with a ribbon.  They can be found in your "mailbox" in the office.  There is a box of folders with swimmers names, the ribbons will be in there. Ribbons will be ready for pick-up on WEDNESDAY after a meet. We will also make an effort to have the box on deck on Wednesdays as a reminder.
