2019: A Special Year

In the Summer of 2019, a very rare achievement was made by a village pool swim team. The Swarm not only sent several swimmers to Conference Championships, but 3 swimmers (3 young ladies) made it to County Finals! The individuals who garnered All-County status were Alyssa Schlacter 8U, for Freestyle, Breaststroke and Butterfly; Velvet Marsh 10U, for Breaststroke and Sophia Duver 17U, for Breaststroke and Butterfly. They could not have achieved this without the support of each other and the camaraderie of The Swarm.

Let's reach for the stars and see what The Swarm can do in 2021!
