Scorching Swim Team Success

The spectators were just as wet dripping with sweat as the swimmers in the pool today during the meet against Woodridge Lake. Our team blasted WL, coming 1st or 2nd in just about every race. The 8 and under team stunned the crowd as they swam their hearts out, while the pure number of 9/10s intimidated the opposing team. Our small but mighty older group powered through every race, many times only racing their fellow teammates. It was an awesome meet. Thanks to the timers, ribbon writers, lifeguards, kitchen staff for those melty-soft cookies and of course the parents for the support and spirit.
