NOVA New Year Kick-Off Results
The results from the New Year Kick-off at NOVA Aquatic Club are now posted. This BB & under format gave our Racers a great opportunity to swim events they may not ordinarily swim, achieve new time standards, and to finish in the ribbons count.
A total of 33 Racers competed in this meet including one (1) of our 8 & unders competing in his 1st US Swim meet! Ribbons were awarded for the Top 8 finishes in each event, and are highlighted in the attached summary.
