    Congratulations to Kenley Morillo swimming in her first A meet!

    A shout out to Izzy Najarro, Ricky Najarro, and the Ravas Family for winning this morning’s spirit awards!

    Thank you to all of the families who volunteered this morning. We couldn’t have hosted a successful meet without you! We especially want to shout out Bharathy Srinivasan, who volunteered in concessions and helped with ribbons, even though she did not have a swimmer in the meet!

    We will miss our seniors who swam in their final dual meet of their MCSL career this morning: Jacob Arias, Cameron Clagett, Juliana Gacuma, and Sophia Hoover. We wish you all the best in the years ahead! Thank you to the Hoover family for the hours and hours you have volunteered for the team over the years. We appreciate you! And we are thankful that the Arias, Clagett, and Gacuma families will be with us on deck for years to come. 🙂
