Phew! What a lot of fast swimming! With so many meets happening on these last few weekends before Conference season, I am sure there are plenty of athletes and coaches out there getting excited to swim even faster. But first, there’s taper season. Energy starts building up, anticipation, anxiety, and a whole lot less yardage (the athletes hope). So to all you swim fanatics out there, keep swimming fast, stay warm in these winter months, and as always, if you have any questions, or if you would like to see your school featured in the weekly recap, contact us at staff@d3swimming.com with a brief description of what to look for. Swim fast everyone!
