That’s right TCA, we got 2nd place at the Sundance Swimming Championship Meet. What a wonderful way to cap off another great summer at the Tennis Club of Albuquerque. All of the swimmers, from the 8 & unders to the 15-18’s, really dedicated themselves, worked hard every day, and swam their absolute best when it really counted most. My coaches, Michael Phillips, Lauren Fleddermann, and Cassaundra Pino, did such an amazing job working with all of those young swimmers, instilling in them not just the technical aspects of swimming, but also the finer points of being a better person. The team moms that helped so much…Becky Bone: she has helped me, my other coaches, and the team at large, and is a big reason why have had such amazing success these past few years. You and your boys will be missed. Renee Mercier: the way you stepped up, learned the system, and are now taking the reins for next year (and years to come) is greatly appreciated by myself and the entire team. And the rest of the parents that drove their swimmers to early morning practices, stood in the hot sun to volunteer and cheer on the team, and supported myself and the other coaches, a huge thank you from Michael, Lauren, Cassaundra, and me! I also have to thank Cathie, the TCA manager, for being so supportive of the entire team and putting up with our loud practices, even louder swim meets, and maintaining the pool for us to practice in. Thank you!
