  All seven teams in the Central Arizona Swimming League were invited to the League Relay Meet on July 7 at the at Parkside (Anthem Merrill Ranch in Florence).  Only three teams attended the meet – the Sea Lions, the Parkside Piranhas and the Coolidge Dolphins.  The meet was held using a co-ed relay only format with combined age groups.  No team scores were kept, but team pride was on the line for every event.

  The Sea Lions looked awesome at the meet. The Sea Lions relays won every event in both the 9-12 year old age group and the 13 – 18 year old age group.  The Sea Lions also won the Crescendo Relay which includes swimmers of all age groups swimming different distances.

  Three year old Gabe Marquez participated in his first swim meet.  He raced in the Kick Board Relay with his brother Damian (6), Jocelyn Hudson (8), and Annie Nemons (7).

  Gabe Marquez (3) was named Sea Lions Beast of the Week.  He is the youngest Sea Lion ever to compete in a meet.  He smiled as he kicked his way across the pool on the kick board all by himself without stopping.  His strong kick is a sure sign that he will be ready for more racing next year.

  The Sea Lions swim team will compete in the Central Arizona League Championship Meet at the Florence Aquatic Center on Saturday, July 14, at 8 a.m.  The Sea Lions have won the League Championship every year since 2007, and have hopes of winning it again this year.

  There is still time to join the team – contact Alex or Wendy Gort at 896-2190, stop by the Mammoth between 4 and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or check sealionsswimteam.com for more information.
