In conclusion, we would like to say that this successful season would not have been possible without the hard work of all Swimmers and Coaches as well as the tremendous support from our Swim Parents, Officials, Volunteers and Parent Committee members. We would like to extend a special thank you to Sammi Su and all  members of the Su family for all their hard work and dedication to the betterment of our program. 

Through everyone’s hard work and dedication we were able to achieve an amazing milestone by making it into the Top-15 swim clubs in the Metropolitan Swimming out of more than 100 clubs in both Short Course Yards and Long Course Meters. Remarkably, this was accomplished despite competing against clubs with much larger numbers of swimmers and locations. 

Thanks again for an amazing season!
