Last weekend the Vashon Seals Swim Team sent 22 swimmers, ranging in age from 8 to 17, to the Winter Challenge Meet at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma. Of the 128 events that the team participated in, 71 were new personal best times. Seals swimmers also achieved 22 new silver and two new gold time standards.

The team is enjoying their winter training under the bubble at the Vashon Pool and will continue to participate in Pacific Northwest Swimming meets throughout the year.
