BHRC Marlins Swim Team

Sponsored by the Brook Highland Racquet Club, the Marlins were formed in 1991. The Marlins are a member of the Jefferson Shelby Swim Council. From June to July, the team will typically have 5-6 Tuesday night swim meets competing against local teams. In addition to these dual meets, swimmers may also compete in Invitational meets, a Guppy Meet for novice swimmers, and a championship "County Meet" for qualified swimmers at the end of the season.
