A special thanks to all the volunteers! This is an important meet for YMCA Swimming and and the meet could not be held without the efforts of the Shark family. Our willingness to provide the needed volunteers to run a meet of this size at an away location is appreciated by all concerned with the Y-States meet - plus the Sharks benefit financially for those efforts though a sharing of the meet fees earned. Thanks for a job well done!
