The Terrapins traveled with 60 swimmers to compete in the 2020 Phoenix Winter Invitational February 14th-17th in Phoenix, Arizona. The team came away with a strong 2nd place out of 25 other teams. Once again, it was a collective team effort from the 10-unders to the 15-18’s that contributed to the team’s success. The Wendler boys, Morgan (9) and Mason (13), took home the high point award for their respective age groups. There was a ton of personal bests and break through performances from the entire team.
