Kate and Ginnie said they had a great time and can't wait for the next meet! We also had some ex-collegiate swimmers and other ex-swimmers that came back to a meet after a long hiatus. Many of our swimmers also had remarkable drops in their times from last year's meet including Allan Byer who dropped 15 seconds in the 100 free.
We want to thank Karen Alexander for being the meet director. Also a big shout out to Jim Keogh and Will McWhorter for officiating! Kudos to the following for all their contributions to making the meet a huge success: Sara Bopp, Susan Demere, Janice Hebel, Tim Johnson, Steve Stuart, and Carolyn Moore. We especially appreciate our friends and teammates for their help timing and being a part of the team.
