The Mimosa Swim Team traveled to Ormond Country Club to take on their third competitor of the season Wednesday, June 21.


The meet which was delayed by approximately 45 minutes due to weather, finally ended declaring Mimosa as the winner with a score of 561 - 495.

The team had a great deal of fun facing off with the Gators from Ormond, a team which was equally large in number. Many of the events had up to four heats. The rain delay simply gave the Dolphins more time to bond as a team and promote their team spirit as they wrote motivational messages on each other.

The boys and girls were excited to visit another team's club for a meet since Mimosa will be hosting all but one of their meets this season. The little Dolphins, the 6 and under kids, were especially nervous to be swimming and competing in a new pool. Ultimately though, they fought back their anxiety, swam hard, and enjoyed every minute of it.
