RIBBONS— From our ribbon coordinator:
‘Happy summer TPC Age Group swim families! As we near summer swim and the following short swim break, I would like to clean-up our awards cabinet. Some swimmer’s files are overflowing with ribbons and medals! Please take a look and take those awesome accomplishments home. Cleaning up the files will allow for easier access and sorting of awards and ensure less mess and lost ribbons. Thank you!
Also, if you think you are missing any ribbons or have any questions, please feel free to reach out. — Lisa Butcher — lisa@butchergroup.net

SWIMMER OF THE MONTH— Nico Barnard and Isaac Soderlund! This month we celebrate 8-un power boys! Both of these guys get to practice all the time and pester the coaches with millions of questions. We love that! Their quest for speed and competitive drive has been on display for the past few months with many best times and lots of experienced gained. They are the future of our team, and the future is bright! Way to go boys!

See you at the pool,
Coach Mike
