The 2018-2019 season comes to a close with the girls having broken six individual records and two relay records this season. The Titans will graduate a class of five seniors this year, but have a strong group of underclassmen that are on the rise. Congratulations to the ladies on a fantastic season of fast swimming! Best wishes to our seniors on their post-graduate plans!
