Since the pool at Hillcrest Middle School closed last spring, the Pisces were forced to overcome obstacles like traveling to pools in Milford and Orange late in the evening as well as a reduction of practice time. Even without a home pool, the Pisces persevered throughout the recent short course season. Over the last two weekends, the team event saw two swimmers excel in the region's championship meets.
At the 10 and under meet, Tammy Lombardo finished 18th overall in the 50-backstroke at the Age Group Championships, the final state championship meet of the season with all of Connecticut’s fastest swimmers together at one meet. To qualify, swimmers need to achieve time standards set by the Connecticut Swimming and USA Swimming Associations.
