A thought on the 2021 season
"Great moments are born from great opportunity."
Herb Brooks in the movie "Miracle"
This season has been the one of the most interesting, challenging, frustrating, angering, and rewarding. With all those emotions throughout the season, 2021 has been a year that we all will remember.

Social distancing, mask, and lane limits have not diminished what the swimmers have accomplished. 2021 has turned out to be something we will always remember.
Season has been concluded. (Whew! We made it)

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
