MACS and TOPS Relay Meet Recap
The Hurricanes were a force to reckon with at the two meets we attended in October.   There were many epic swims throughout the marathon weekend at the MACS meet.  Thanks to the coaches for maintaining a positive and energetic atmosphere during those long days!  Overall, Hurricanes Swimmers dropped a total of 1540.62 seconds - that's 25.67 minutes!! Wow!

At the TOPS Relay meet at DU on October 24th, we fielded over 50 relay teams and everyone had a great time.  This is the first time we have entered an all-relay meet, and it was terrific for the swimmers to have a chance to practice their relays.  We do compete in relays at the State Championship meets, and the scores from those events count toward the team totals. 

Save the Date: Sunday, December 12th
The team's holiday party will be held on Sunday, December 12th at the Rec Center. More information will be sent out once the plans are finalized.
