Swim Team


Congratulations to all of our swimmers who swam in Divisionals, you all did an amazing job and definitely impressed us coaches! For those of you who qualified in the top 16, the Championship meet is Thursday, July 24th.  Swimmers should be there at 4:00pm for warm-ups, and the meet will start at 5:00pm. The meet will run in the same order as Divisionals: Freestyle, Backstroke, Butterfly, Breaststroke, and I.M.

This is just a friendly reminder that the 13 and older practices have been pushed back a half-hour due to a decrease in swimmers attending practice; so practice will be from 7:00am- 8:00am. Also, Coach Lauren will not be at practice this week due to other commitments; however, Coach Anthony, Bethani, and Dani will all be there anxiously awaiting to give lots of last minute stroke correction before the big meet.

This summer has been so great coaching the Taylor Torpedo’s! The last day of practice is Thursday, July 24th. We hope you all enjoyed the summer as much as we coaches have, and we can't wait to see you again next summer. Have a great school year!
