Coach Sara Bany: After winning SPC last year and losing five seniors (five of the eight swimmers on our SPC team), the boys have fought back this year and are returning with a new team and goals set. I’m so proud of all of the work they have put in this year and can’t wait to see how they finish up.
The girls only graduated one person from our SPC team last year, so we are back in full force and looking to improve on last year’s 4th place finish. This whole team has all of the heart and work ethic of a championship team. We are all looking forward to SPC this week!
