Goodbye for Now to a Piranha!

For almost a decade, a very special young lady has been a part of our program, and has touched the lives of so, so many of us. I've watched her grow from a spunky little age grouper in the Black team, to a talented athlete in the Varsity group, and finally into one of the best leaders I've ever had the privilege of coaching. Her influence and infectious personality has brought smiles to athletes, parents, coaches, and especially myself. You need only glance through our team record book to note the impact this young lady has had upon our team, and her fierce drive to win every time she touches the water will always be something I remember. But more than that is the impact she makes simp

Meet Wrap Ups

Futures Wrap Up The Futures Championships was held August 3 - 6 in Santa Clara, Ca. The meet is a high caliber, national meet, yet has a really chill vibe to it! :) It was a HUGE success, and our two swimmers represented the Piranhas with great pride! Hannah Hudson had a fantastic meet, winning her heats and dropping time! Her attitude was fantastic, and she competed like the warrior she is! The cool thing about Hannah is that she turns on a switch when she gets up on the blocks and she's only about putting her hand on the wall first! Maddy Grimes swam in her final meet as a high school Piranha athlete, and I was incredibly proud of her! She has always been such an incredible comp
