I CHEER FOR MY TEAM
The Stonegate Serpents Swim Team is a member of the Montgomery County Swim League. This league currently consists of 91 teams in 15 divisions ("A" through "O") with six teams in each division (except 7 in Division O.) Division assignments are based upon the previous season's swimmer times.
The Stonegate Serpents finished seocond in Division A in 2016. Swimmers showed up and swam hard! We begin the summer of 2017 ranked second in Division A. I BELIEVE!
The mission of the Stonegate Serpents Swim Team is to encourage formal but friendly team competition through the Montgomery County Swim League during the summer. We seek to create a fair and wholesome environment in order to develop swimming skills, encourage sportsmanship and teamwork, and foster an appreciation of the relationship between effort and success.
