"Our team continues to improve," Morgan said. "We get better every meet. They are working two hours a day, three days a week to try and get better."

The team will travel to Clarksville for the district meet on July 12. The meet will be held at the Ruby C. Fulbright Aquatic Center.

The Racers will also participate in two more meets before the end of July.

On July 19 the team will swim at Hunter's Chase in Cumming and on  July 26 the team will host a meet at Dawson County Veterans Memorial Park Pool.
