Congratulations to the Aqua Dynamics Swim Team for a job well done at the PPST Pentathlon!

The challenge was daunting: swim a 50 or 100 of every stroke (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle) followed by a 100 or 200 IM. Not only did our swimmers have to swim every event well, they had to swim all events within a two and a half hour timeline. That’s only 20 minutes break between each event! This was one of the most physically challenging meets we’ve had to date, and the results were incredible!
