Swimquaintences goes to Rice University (Video)

What’s a Swimquaintence?

Whether you’re an athlete, coach, or parent, you’re at the pool for hours a week. Practice, meets, volunteering… you put in some serious time. And during that time, you meet other people who are putting in their time. Swimquaintences. We all have them.

While in Houston, Swimswam took a trip over to Rice University’s campus. While there, we asked them about their swimquaintences.

You definitely have a few swim stories up your sleeve to share, which the girls at Rice certainly did.
