I can proudly announce we have made our Silvers goal for the year. At the beginning of the year, the coaches set out to have 40 Swimmers make at least one Silver time. Congratulations to everyone that worked hard and made that. With the new Silver swimmers Haley and Briana, we have hit that mark! Thank you parents for your dedication, support, and sacrifice.
For those of you who are qualified for the Silver meet, the meet is March 1st - 3rd. Please continue to work hard to achieve even better results! You can still make the JO cut at the Silvers. For those of you who did not qualify for the Silvers Meet, we still have one meet left: the Bronze Championship March 22nd - 24th. Details to follow.
Congratulations Gateway Swimmers!
