We couldn't be more proud of the swimming and sportsmanship we saw all the swimmers exhibit tonight. It truly is very difficult to pick the swimmer of the meet. Tonight's swimmers exhibited the ultimate sportsmanship as well compassion and kindness. They helped other swimmers and they cheered on their teammates. One swimmer broke an EASC record and another dropped 14 seconds on her birthday! Congratulations you 4!
