What a fun and vibrant 4th of July meet this year, and the best turn out we have had in a while during the week of the 4th. Another amazing sign to welcome our swimmers and parents to the pool this week. Thank you to the parents that pitched in to set that up. If you are interested in donating to the last sign for the home meet please contact Blair Barnes at or just find her at practice. 

Our swimmers made some fun signs that really showed great team spirit for everyone to enjoy, and the fun themed accessories for the 4th really seemed to get everyone amped up for our countries independence! Go USA!

With the talent our team has, Stonebridge didn’t stand a chance!

Scores and Meet Highlights:Riverwood 347 VS Stonebridge 167

This meet was non-divisional, but was a real confidence booster after our close loss last week. I expect this to carry into our last two divisional meets to close out the summer with a few big wins!We had 76 swimmers like last week with a total of 219 recorded races. This lead too 81 improved times and a 37% improvement team wide. We are so proud of the fast swims, competitive atmosphere and the sportsmanship shown by all who attended yesterday.

We had five Triple winners for the meet: Logan Yarborough, Mariana Fuentes, Carlee Davis, Chelsea Cotham and Elijah Hammons winning all three of their individual events!

Our 15-18 Boys Free Relay comprised of Kale Miller, Peyton Bednar, Tyler Henry, James Cotham broke the Free Relay Team record with a time of 1:36.22!
