The team is made up of swimmers ages 6-18. T

he Riptides had various swimmers achieve first place in events, including Grace Sanford, who won the butterfly, backstroke and individual medley.

The coaches for the team were pleased.

“The kids have been practicing hard and we are happy to see the progression of the swimmers,” Jack Roberts said. “We have multiple families who return each season and their high scores show this.”

The next meet is 7:30 a.m. Friday at Wollman Aquatic Center.
