White Hot Fall Season
After beginning the season with a large 70 swimmer group, White team has proven they are a force to be reckoned with through the first meets of fall, with 16 first-time Silvers Qualifiers! With our midseason Hydro Meet just around the corner on December 9th and 10th, White team looks to add to that total!
The White Team is a group within our Age group program.
