Tomah Torpedoes swim team swam their its swim meet of the season in La Crescent, Minnesota, June 22.

“We were hoping for a change in the weather forecast and, sure enough, the weather decided to open up bright, sunny skies with wonderful temperatures for us to swim,” said coach Julia Koput.

Tomah Torpedoes swim team 2019 swim season began the second week of June with practices at Tomah Aquatic Center. Although inclement weather forced the cancellation of some practices, Koput said the team’s swimmers took to the water with great efforts.

“It is extremely gratifying to see swimmers continue to develop their swimming abilities each year they swim,” she said. “We celebrate their accomplishments with great excitement.”

“Along with Joe Protz and Tomah Parks and Recreation Department, I would like to take this opportunity to thank coach Cathy Coffey for her years of dedicated efforts to facilitate this program to what it has become,” Koput said. “Each year it has gotten better, and it is due to the support of coach Coffey and Joe Protz ... working close together to have this wonderful opportunity for children between ages seven to 17 to participate in.”
