Arlene Miller announced that the 2011 Marathon was a great financial success (in addition to being fun!). Even though we were down by two swimmers/divers in head count, we surpassed last year’s total collections! This is a fantastic showing by our Firestone High School Swimming & Diving Team for such an inportant cause. In May, our seniors will be presenting a check to Akron Children’s Hospital for more than $8,400 towards our $20,000 pledge for equipment for ACH’s new in-house rehabilitation center. Thanks to everyone for your food donations, transportation, but most of all, your time and continued support for the Firestone High School Swimming & Diving Team! See more details on the Highlights page.
The new 2011-2012 team and individual photographs can now be viewed and downloaded from the internet via a link on the Photos page. We will have the photographs available until the end of January, so make sure you download the pictures you want before too long. Thanks to Kathy Daneshvar for pulling this all together.

The Falcon swimmers and divers kicked off a promising 2011-2012 season with a intra-team competition, the annual Green and Gold meet. All of our team was in fine form and it was a close contest that ended with a narrow 150-123 victory for the Gold swimmers. Thanks to all the parents who provided food and drink for the feast that followed. It was a great time to meet the coaches, the new team members, and their parents and get us all oriented for the fast-paced season to come. On Friday morning, the Gold swimmers were treated to breakfast by the Green team. We can’t wait to see all the swimmers and divers on the same side of the pool!
