Really good streamlines and awesome underwaters. 11 Silver swimmers swam and all 11 had at least 1 Best time. 6 out of the 11 had 100 % best times in every event. This is a great and awesome job to everyone. The team support all around the pool deck was great to see!

We had people doing racing dives and flip turns correctly for the first time in competition. That’s a big deal when you are still learning. The accomplishments in the group were amazing. Looking at the quality of swims our swimmers swam, we had many coaches asking who these guys are. The answer is obvious, we are Triton Swimming!! Way to go Bronze Group!
