Ridgetop at Burkwood recap

We had a strong team effort tonight at Burkwood, and the coaches are very proud of the start-to-finish effort. Burkwood pushed us harder than any other team this season, and that translated into many best times, some very close finishes, and lots of fist pumps on our side of the pool J. We had many kids step up and get out of their comfort zone, and the coaches want to salute everyone for fighting and cheering to the finish. In the end, they squeaked by with a well-deserved win:
Burkwood: 1406

Ridgetop: 1343

Both teams finished 5-1 on the season, and enjoyed a celebratory dip in the pool after the relays. Because we scored a few more points than Burkwood in our two meets against each other, we are fortunate to claim the regular season trophy for the Red Division. A trophy will be presented to us at champs. Congratulations to each of you for an outstanding season! Let’s keep this momentum going for next week’s Championships!!

Ridgetop vs Walton Park recap

July 9, 2013- Good Morning Swim Fans:

We swam very well tonight against a large Walton Park squad. Thanks to everyone for staying in the water, staying late, and staying even later… The coaches would like to salute the preteamers who made us so proud with their first splash tonight, and to our graduating seniors who have made us so proud for so many years of dedication: Leigh Allin, Grant Brown, Max Cannon, Freddy Given, Harry Hoke, Emma Landon, Anna Mathews, McKenzie Walker, and Annie Weidhaas.

Grant, in his ninth season, and Annie, in her 14th, were triple winners tonight, for the first time in their careers. Perseverence pays, and what a great lesson to our younger kids!!!
