Whitman Fall Triathlon

This past Saturday was the Fall Triathlon, one of the main fundraisers for the Swimming program, as well as an opportunity for the Whitman and Walla Walla community to participate in a local triathlon. It was a great success - thanks to all the participants and community sponsors!

Off to a Great Start!

The season has officially begun! We have one week under our belt, a week of tough tryouts, and the team looks great!

Our first meet will be October 17th and we will be hosting College of Idaho. The next week (October 24th) will be the infamous Alumni meet. For more meet information, check out the swimming page on the Whitman athletics website!
