“I couldn't be more proud of these three said” Tillamook Sharks coach Shannon Pearson. “They did so

well at this meet, and have worked so incredibly hard these last couple of months to prepare for this meet. Their hard work, and dedication is definitely paying off. They should be so proud of how well they swam.”
