That explains why approximately 100 local swimmers ages 6 to 18 can answer the question about how they spent their summer vacation with just three words: "in the pool."
"My goal (this school year) is to be the first girl from Rivera to go to state," she said. "When I first started swimming (at age 6) it was just for fun, but about a year ago I started taking it more seriously, and now I'm seeing that all my hard work is paying off."
"It's sometimes a struggle to wake up so early (to make it to summer workouts), but if it's something you love to do, then you do it," she added. "Being involved in a summer program like this is a huge benefit."
"It means a lot to be here because I get to do something that I've done a long time," said Moreno, a standout in the 100 butterfly along with the 500 free. "I've gone far in swimming at a young age, and knowing how far I can go makes me realize that I can do a lot better when I'm older.

They are participants of the Brownsville Aquatics summer program, which enables area swimmers to keep up their training for competitions during the coming school year. Brownsville Aquatics is actually a year round program that, just like the local high schools, makes use of Margaret M. Clark Aquatic Center.
