2015 FISH LC DERBY @ George Mason (May 2nd)

Senior Gold kicked off the 2015 LC Season this past weekend at the 2015 FISH LC Derby Meet. Our group performed very well and had a lot of fun in this nontraditional swim meet. In the spirt of the Kentucky Derby, swimmers were asked to create their own “horse name” which was used throughout the meet rather than their actual name. In addition, each team was given a different color derby cap to compete in similar to how each Jockey has a different color hat at the Kentucky Derby – RAC proudly donned the neon green derby cap!! Though it’s an early season meet, I hope this competitive experience will help boost our training to new levels in the weeks/months to come. Here are some of the highlights from the meet.
