Upcoming Meets
Soon the entry for the Eastern Clusters Meet will be available. This is a required meet for our swimmers. Farmington has had some difficulty securing a pool so the format may change. The weekend of Clusters is also the weekend of the Michigan Open at Oakland University. Experienced swimmers , thirteen years and up, may attend as long as they attend one day of the Cluster Meet. The Michigan Open is a prelims/final format. DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THE MEET UNLESS YOU PLAN TO BE AT THE FINALS SESSION IF YOU QUALIFY IN THE PRELIMS SESSION.

2023 Mid-States All-Star Championships
We had three of our swimmers participate in the 2023 All-Star Meet at Indianapolis representing Team Michigan. Charlie McCuiston, Malin Murphey and Will Schwab swam sixteen individual events and several relays among them. Malin finished 16th in the 50 back and Will finished 16th in the 500 freestyle. Charlie finished 4th in the 50 and 200 free, 5th in the 100 free, 10th in the 200 breast and 16th in the 100 fly and 100 back. They made us proud!!
