“It was a very strong weekend for our athletes as we use Sr Champs to sharpen race skills and prepare for the NCSA Jrs. in March.  I was proud of the way our swimmers swam in 6-7 events and 4-5 relays and were enthusiastic all the way through.  Zach Brown and Grace Countie both showed the endurance and versatility we try to develop at MOR that will lead to long term success.  Winning a State Championship is always fun for the athletes.”  said MOR Head Coach Paul Silver
