Swimming’s TopTenTweets of the Week: #6 Rooney Officially a Gator


November 11 was signing day, and these seven Manta Rays are now officially college bound.


Here’s to 10 more! And then a few more after that. And then three more years.


Yeah coach, I can’t get in yet, the scenery is too beautiful for me to try to do this set right now.


The sun might go down but that doesn’t mean the work ends.


Maxime made his verbal decision alllllll the way back in February, but now he’s made it official. #Gators


Signing day is also Veteran’s day. Thanks to all those who’ve served this country.


Next time you complain about the 400 IM, think about this guy. He LOVES the 400 IM, and it takes him almost 10 minutes to finish it. And he’s decades older than our average reader. AND he’s a world record holder!!! Wowza.


Fans are so important. Nothing like some extra support during a huge meet.




A proper reaction to the news. Wait until she finds out that you swim the 1000 and 1650 in college meets.
