The Blue Devils Summer Swim Club celebrated its 65th season with their annual swim meet held at the Memorial Pool in Lewis Park.
There were over 250 swimmers and families who came from all over the Island, making this the biggest meet so far. It was the first swim meet for many of the Blue Devils, especially the little ones who only graduated from the Little Devils program last year. However with all their prowess they came up to the blocks , dove in and swam 50m and 100m.
The coaches were impressed with the swimmers and all their hard work and will now focus on helping each swimmer to reach their full potential as athletes, while having a summer full of fun.
