Coach Seymour had this to say about his team, “With half of our swimmers unable to practice last winter due to Covid restrictions, it was exciting to see so many performance improvements this early in the season, including Leighton Paulsen, who broke the KYD team record for the 15 & Up 200 yd. Backstroke. We look forward to our next meet against the Granite YMCA Tiger Sharks later this month, and a return to UVAC for the Winter Classic meet in December. It’s going to be a great year!”

Congratulations to all the KYD swimmers for a successful first meet!
