We are inviting you and your family to a special season launch get together

CALAL 13 and over invitational

Two weeks ago our 13 and over swimmers participated in the CALAC invitational meet in LaSalle. We had a lot of great swims, and a lot of fun along the way! Some highlights included Dario Colavincenzo making his AA standard in the 200 butterfly and Nicolas McCracken making his AA standard in the 200 backstroke.

We are also very proud of Alexandra Siciliani for winning all of her individual swims, which included 4 races within 30 minutes of each other in the Saturday night finals session. Alexandra was named the high point swimmer of the meet, for which she received the prize of a brand new racing suit valued at $400. Congratulations Alex!!!
