From the Coaches: 
I would like to begin by thanking everyone who came and helped with making this Saturday's meet against UMAC a successful one. With all the technical difficulties that we experienced, if it wasn't for everyone coming together and helping, the meet wouldn't have happened. I would also like to thank everyone for their patience while we had to solve multiple issues all at once. 
We had our first win of the season, with our athletes having incredible swims! We are improving in all areas and we hope to see our swimmers continue to grow. Let's keep up the great work! 
Thank you everyone,
CAC Coaches 
 
Swimmers of the Meet: Boys:  For the swimmer of the meet yesterday for the boys' team I wanted to choose Sid Pandith. It was his first meet of the season, and I was really proud of how far he's come this season. In each of his races, he really pushed himself to do his best and had some great personal bests to start the season with. Girls:  I would like to recognize the Girls' Swimmer of the Meet, Kiersten Haar! At only four years old, Kiersten excelled in her two individual events and a relay; we are very proud of her!  As always, it was great to see our athletes encourage and cheer for one another. Dive: Our diver of the meet is Brian Gray. Brian is an exceptional young man and diver.  Brian's ability to listen and apply his skill set to his dives makes him a natural athlete.  This week Brian dove in both 11&U and 14&U age groups contributing 9 of our 14 points for a wim for the boys! Brian is not just an asset for the team but a pleasure to coach and a role model for his teammates.
