Around 93 kids participated in various events like the all strokes, freestyle, butterfly, back and breast stroke.

AJ Mamone, Christian Spangler and Tillman Hawk had a night finishing first and second in the boys 15-18 200m medley relay, among other notable results.

An event that brings a lot of commerce and recognition to the beautiful Dresden Swim Center.

“This Dresden Dorados team has just been awesome. It’s a blessing for this community, first time this pool has ever been used for competition. Most of our meets have had 200 swimmers. It’s just been awesome to bring business back to the Dresden community,” said Christi Holmes.
