This is what social swimming is all about! After another successful LMSC SCY Championship meet at Harvard University March 11 and 17-19, 2017, WAM celebrated and recharged with beers and food at Compass Tavern back in Wootown.
We laughed, we cried (-0.05), we kicked butt, we laughed again!
Congratulations on a hard fought, fast swum, meet!

Thursday through Sunday, WPI will host the New England Men’s and Women’s Athletic Conference Swimming and Diving Championships, a first for the university and probably a first for the city, according to head coach Paul Bennett.
Regularly scheduled practices are back ON!
Let’s get started and see what improvements everyone will be working on this year. Remember little steps will get you on your way!
Be sure to check out the swim technique articles at usms.org and ask the coaches if you have questions, that’s why they are there!
Stay tuned, there may be practices that concentrate on technique coming up soon.
We had a great time swimming a mile at Walden Pond in Concord this morning. The water was warm, the sky blue and sunny. The WAMmies group looked like a pod of porpoises. Then, Mark, Gail, Mary, Erica, Miye, Alford, Brittney and Nancy all headed into town to eat a delicious breakfast at Helen’s restaurant. Next up is Comet Pond swim at 7 a.m. Monday, July 4. Join us! We’ll meet at the beach on Route 68 in Hubbardston.
On the beach at Walden Pond before the swim.
Alford waiting for his pancakes at Helen’s
Gail is ecstatic she ordered homefries with her breakfast..
Tiffany, Nancy Gail, Alford and Miye are super hungry at this point.
We deserve to eat all this food after swimming Walden. Nancy’s watched showed we swam 1,764 yards, almost exactly 1 mile (1.002273)
Nancy, Mary and Tiffany are stuffed.
