The Lakes Region Wavemakers traveled last weekend to White River Junction, VT to attend the 2013 Connecticut Valley Invitational. Competing against 10 other teams of various sizes, their hard work and determination earned them the 6th place trophy. Many swimmers had top ten placements and/or achieved new personal best times.
According to Head Coach Dave Gingrich, "For all the swimmers attending this meet it was a fun day of swimming that was well rewarded." Over the next few weeks, The Wavemakers will host their first home meet of the season on Feb. 2nd at Laconia Athletic and Swim Club, and then will gear up for the New England Regional Meet back in White River Junction. This season the Wavemakers are fortunate enough to more than three-fourths of the team qualifying for events at the Regionals.
