Doorfins Swimmers Excel at State

The Doorfins finished their season with 66 best times at the YMCA State Swimming Championships held at Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center in Brown Deer. These phenomenal times put them in 9th place overall as a team and ahead of 9 teams double or triple their size. The 13-14 year old girls placed 2nd as a team and 20 Doorfin team records were broke in this one meet. In addition, all the High School boys participating shattered best times from their High School season.

Seven individuals and six relays have qualified for the national meet which will be held in Fort Lauderdale in April or Maryland in July. It is uncertain at this time how many of the above qualifiers will participate in the national meets.
