Hello All,
Great meet today. I saw a lot of time improvements and some good first swims by our team. Due to a scoring error by GRNSA we actually ended up winning the meet(During summer season 15&Overs do not score). The final score was GRNSA 355 and Grandville 363, good job team.

If you show up to practice tomorrow, try to celebrate by convincing your coach to let them get pushed in the pool.

See you at the pool
