Callie White Girls 13-14 33.62 seconds
Coach Shawn Morris stated that all their returning swimmers set personal bests in at least one event. They had a few swimmers competing for the first time, and they did great!
The meet was an overwhelming success, and our out-of-town visitors enjoyed themselves and had great things to say about the event and our community. Special thanks to the parents for providing the manpower to make this meet happen, the swimmers for always doing their best, and especially Laurie French and the rest of the pool staff as well as the parks department for all they do throughout the season to provide a wonderful, safe facility for us to compete and practice in.
