The DC Water Wizards had a great time at the 2019 National Senior Games in Albuquerque, New Mexico! It was an incredible experience for our swimmers to compete in a national meet. Our team of 14 (including one new recruit!) was inspired by watching swimmers of all ages (50-100+) and levels.

Team Members who participated include:
David Ball, Alice Bellis, Marvin Blount, Ernestine Brown, Hudie Felming, Kathleen Grant, Audrey Hipkins, Lauretta Jenkins, Mary Kaniewski Margaret Melady, Jim Sale, Sally Stoecker, Lawrence Thurston, and David Kaetzel (new recruit)

Our team received lots of attention and compliments on our red warm-up suits, even a quick shot on the local news. Don’t blink or you’ll miss us towards the end of this clip. (You may need to copy and paste this link in your browser if it doesn’t open directly.)
