Great Job swimming at the Long Course Far Western Championships in Concord last weekend. Piper Sterling dropped a second in her 50 breaststroke and Emma Smethurst dropped a second in her 100 breaststroke. The 11-12 girls relays had a pair of second place finishes and a pair of fourth place finishes against some very tough competition. Our team placed 6th overall, our best finish in years! Great job everybody!
We will have a Hot Dog Eating Purple Pump Up Party on Thursday, August 6th right after practice. Bring a white t-shirt to be tye-dyed!
The Summer's End Swim Classic from Friday, August 8th to Sunday, August 10th at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill is closed for entry on Swim Connection but you can still enter through a hand delivered entry form.
