But the real story.... What a remarkable group of young student athletes our community supports. The small swim team is a particular favorite and near and dear to the heart of Romeos. Harry's other half proudly coaches these fine individuals daily. During the dreary months of winter as their counterparts peel out of the high school parking lot, they are heading to lockers rooms to prepare for swimming. Every. Day.
They show up, they work hard, and they treat each other well. The rewards aren't great and they are almost never get accolades outside of the pool deck. They deserve accolades. Many accolades; not so much for what they do in the pool, but for the people they are becoming. What a great inspiration these youngsters are (especially to their coach!)
Thank you for a great season Rockets Swimming.
