This January, thirty eight Express Swimmers traveled to the University of Maryland to compete at the IMXtreme Games sponsored by United States Swimming. The IMXtreme Games promote and reward versatility in age group swimming while advocating greater participation and development across a range of events. The goal is to enable long term success in swimming.

Every year United States Swimming recognizes swimmers who excel in both the classroom and the pool. We are very proud of Megan Smith who has been named to USA Swimming's Scholastic All-America Team.
USA Swimming Scholastic All-Americans are student athletes who have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher, have completed the 10th, 11th or 12th grade, and have at least one cut for the Winter Junior Nationals.
Twenty five Express swimmers qualified for the New York State Girls High School Swimming Championships at Ithaca College on November 20-21.
