News and Announcements
Thanks to everyone for helping us with our first season in our new pool! We will leave the season on the website throughout the winter before we archive it for next year.
Hoping everyone has a great 2019-2020 school year, and looking forward to seeing you in 2020. A few changes to anticipate…
- We will be moving the 9 year olds to practice with the 10-12 year olds. This will reunite the 9/10 age group into a single practice and allow more space for our growing 8/under age group.
- The 2020 season will begin a week later with the first swim meet very likely to be after the school year ends.
- The championship meet will be the weekend of August 1-2, 2020.
Congratulations to Kate Balut for winning the GRAL senior varsity championship in 11-12 girls’ 50 breast. Kate and all of our past GRAL champions are listed on the website under the RECORDS/CHAMPIONS link. Kate’s winning time was also a team record.
Ethan Spencer broke the team record in 15-18 boys’ 100 breast. This is the third champs meet in a row in which Ethan has broken this record.
Other first place finishers were:
Ethan Spencer 15-18 boys’ 100 breast
Duke Flanagan 11-12 boys’ 100 IM
Grace Gordon 11-12 girls 100 free
Congratulations to all of our champs participants.
Enjoy the rest of the summer!
