Moses Lake Summer 2018

The 14 swimmers who took part in the Moses lake meet this summer really enjoyed themselves. The Moses lake summer heat was on reaching temperatures of up to 39C!! This is a really nice start to summer and gives the swimmers a new challenge in the pool to swim without sight lines on the ceiling. Most of our backstroke and IM swimmers did a great job and rarely had any lane rope trouble.

Swimming fast long course this time of year can be tough outdoors but the swimmers continue to show improvements.

Some highlights were:
