Successful Home-hosted Meet for Sungod Swim Club, 11 & Under Sprint Cup a resounding success!
What an exciting swim meet for DSSC 11 & Under swimmers! Twenty-three athletes from the Delta Sungod Swim Club participated in their home-hosted 11 & Under Sprint Cup. The meet hosted 150 young athletes from 7 different LMR clubs to some fun, fast shorter events. DSSC’s 11 & Under Sprint cup has been a staple meet for developing young swimmers for over 10 years. With the concept of a short, prize filled session swimmers could get up and race multiple events and still see much success.
The meet’s fun environment can be attributed to DSSC’s parent organizers and volunteer cohort who worked diligently to ensure that all the swimmers walked away feeling good about themselves.

Emma Zhang (10) - gold 100 IM/100 Breast/50 Free, bronze 100 back/50 fly
