9-12 District Champs Results

    Racers –

    Our District Championships month continued with our 9-12 Racers throwing down some fantastic swims at NOVA last weekend, Friday through Sunday. For this age group, the championships included a Preliminary Session during the day, with the top sixteen 11-12 year-olds and the top eight 9-10 year-olds returning for an exciting evening Finals Swim-off. Most of these swimmers returning also face one (1) last shot at making Age Group time standards to swim at the State Championships at VA Tech in March.

    We were so proud to have no fewer than (4) Racers return for the Finals each of the three nights last weekend, an awesome stat for our comparable small club. Top recognition goes to the following Racers who made it back to Finals (and where noted, earned AG Cuts):
