All of our swimmers and parents can be very proud of our weekend at Mount Hood. The meet director came to our coaches to personally thank us for stepping up to help when needed as a team. She said that they could not have run the event without us.
The coaches saw many of our swimmers giving high 5s, hand shakes, thumbs up, etc, to their competitors and cheering for their team mates. Awesome work, HeadHunters!
