The West Laurel Wahoos have been having a terrific swim season. They started off the swim season with a big win defeating Whitehall. Since then, they have had two very narrow losses.
Despite the losses, Wahoos have had some spectacular swims with double and triple wins by Max Bagileo, Danielle Calabrese, Olivia Petrusky, Lee Friedman, Eric Brothman, Cara Samson, Billy Rosenberg and Jessica Sweitzer.
If you happen to drive by the West Laurel Swim Club on a Saturday morning when they are having a swim meet, you will see a full parking lot and parked cars overflowing onto Brooklyn Bridge Road. You will see kids of all sizes running around in their West Laurel Swim Team swimsuits, parents and spectators, judges and volunteers, lifeguards, and you will hear lots of happy kids screaming and rooting for their team, parents cheering, and whistles setting off the races.
West Laurel Swim Club and West Laurel Swim Team are two of the best things about West Laurel.
The annual West Laurel Swim Club Adult Social will be held July 16 from 7 p.m. until midnight at the pool. This is a well-attended West Laurel tradition that is sure to be a lot of fun.
The event will be catered by Beefalo Bob's. There will be on-site cooked pit beef; pit turkey; pit ham; shredded beef BBQ; hamburgers; hotdogs; hot/cold side dishes; fresh fruit; and all you can drink beer, soda, margaritas and daiquiris. Music will be provided by West Laurel's very own Jerry Burke.
Cost for all this is only $25 for the first 50 members who pay and then $30 for members after that. Nonmembers are welcome at $35 per person.
Pay and sign up at the front desk at the pool. Call 301-725-8768 for more information.
Isn't it a wonderful time of year when you are still wearing your sunglasses at 8 o'clock in the evening? Life is good.
