I don’t understand why SwimSwam so rarely informs readers about where swim clubs are located. I’ve been around swimming for awhile, so I’ve sort of picked up that Carmel is in Indiana, but that is certainly not common knowledge! Yes, I know I can Google the names, and I often do, but I could also Google the team results from the 2023 US Jr Nationals; when you are reporting on an event, isn’t the goal to inform about the relevant facts?
