Very solid 2nd place finish overall!
The girls swam and dove amazingly well! There were so many lifetime bests and great swims over the weekend even though not everyone was fully rested for this meet. With less than two weeks until state, it’s now time to really start resting and fine tuning everything so that we can finish up the season strong!
Up Next: Filly Swim will take part in the 2022 State Swim Meet November 3rd through 5th in Laramie.
