Posted by Town of Tonawanda Titans Swim Club on Feb 27 2020 at 08:06AM PST

What an amazing job this weekend!

Thanks to all who pitched in, worked, donated, and swam! We played host to 599 swimmers, 25 teams, their coaches and extended families! All organizations rely on people stepping up and doing what is necessary at events like this and several families were there for meet set up, worked every session, and were there for clean up every time! A very special thanks to you!

This meet is a stepping stone for swimmers to see what it takes to get to the next level in swimming, A Prelims/finals meet provides opportunities to learn from the swims in the first session and make adjustments for finals. The coaches had a tremendous amount of great swimming to watch and we are continually reminded how this sport works, investment pays off! The team Won the meet overall by over 650 points with the help of all in the relays, individual events, and our 2 high point winners Paul Wissel and Bailey Wiegand.
