2014 Rowdy Gaines Classic Pics

Coach Retta had sooooooooo much fun in Orlando swimming at the 2014 Rowdy Gaines Classic.  Truly, the meet was very efficiently run, had a terrific turnout, and was highlighted with FAST swims by such Masters greats as Rowdy, Erika Braun, Merle Liivand, Elvis Burrows, and Eric McGinnis.  We, as a team, need to go together next year - Orlando is a fantastic area for a mini-vaca while putting in some work in the pool!  Here are some pics:
