The Fountain Hills High School Swim Team is now well into their Fall 2021 season, and things seem to be going swimmingly! On September 25th, the team had their first big statewide meet of the school year, down at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
Coach Patti Schultz, who has been in charge of the FHHS Swim Team throughout its four years of existence, is very proud of her swimmers’ results. Here are a few highlights from their recent Invitational meet at the University of Arizona pool on September 25th, where over 620 swimmers competed.
