The Dawsonville Racers have been making a splash at Veterans Memorial Park as they train during the week for summer swim meets. The park and rec summer league has 64 swimmers this year ranging from five to 18 years old with all levels of swimming abilities represented which can be challenging. “That’s the hard thing with summer league is because you’ve got to make it fun because it’s their summer but yet you still want to give them a good workout and train them,” said Head Coach Stephanie Morgan. Morgan has always loved the water and began swimming competitively when she a child. She has coached the Dawsonville Racers since 2004 when she took over from her former swim coach.
