We have a fairly light timing assignment for the meet, providing one timer at all times for Lane 1 during the prelim (morning) sessions. We will need 2 timers...

Hello Hurricanes Families, We have a few mid-week updates for you, so please read on! Thanks and go Hurricanes, Coach Brian Pool Heater Update I'm sure by now everyone has heard reports of our cold pool! The heater has been broken since Sunday, and the pool temperature had fallen to 78 degrees by today. It has been good practice for our swimmers since most of the pools we compete in are intentionally kept at 78 degrees. All the drama aside, our swimmers have done a great job carrying on and...

Hello Hurricane Families! A big round of applause to everyone who showcased their skills at the Turkey Trot this past weekend. Despite the delays at the meet, our swimmers demonstrated one outstanding performance after another. Special kudos to our 12 and unders – they stole the show by winning in a remarkable percentage of heats, often by hige margins (cue the rubber duckies!).
