We had 8 individual National Champions, 1 relay National Champion, 1 individual National Record, 1 relay National Record, 33 finishes in the top 3, 97 individual finishes in the top 10 and all 14 of our 14 relays finished in the top 10. That's some MAJOR points!!! OUTSTANDING JOB!

LOVED seeing the Arizona Masters out on deck!

But next time would ya bring the Smiths, the Rankins, and Doug A with you?

Until the girls got on deck with their awesome relay, it was a little quiet in the AZ team area!
