8 and Unders Shine at MAL Championships


We had six 8 and Under swimmers compete at the 8 and Under MAL Championship Meet in Gladstone, MO. There were 187 swimmers (Record High) competing at this meet. The meet started out with a parade of athletes to recognize all the swimmers that attended the meet. 


Congrats to Benjamin Carroll, Adin Florence, Giuliano Lule-Paredes, Karsyn Robertson, Nicholas Stefanov, and Maximilian Whittaker for representing Ad Astra. Each swimmer was being positive, smiling, and having a great time at the meet. It was so fun to watch the young swimmers on Ad Astra enjoy the sport of swimming.
