We are very proud of the work that all of our swimmers and divers put into this entire season since August and should highlight their success and accomplishments for one of the most difficult and time-consuming sports out there. These are our state results that typically show accomplishments on a larger level, but ultimately the efforts of our entire team, both girls and boys team, both Varsity and JV, in and out of regular season is hugely impressive and we are very proud to be witness to the hard work and dedication that each and every one of our team members demonstrates throughout the year, both in and out of the pool. If you have a swimmer or diver in your classes, be sure to congratulate them on a great season because they deserve it!

Thank you to all of you who have shown great support to our swimmers and divers throughout the year, you are greatly appreciated and your continued guidance to our athletes in and out of the classroom means so much to us!
