Swimming has been a part of the Rosarian Academy for 59 years, long before many interscholastic sports were offered in Florida. The Rosarian Academy Invitational Swim Meet was started in 1990 to encourage other schools to get involved with swimming.
The participating swimmers ranged in skill level from beginner to those who swim in competitive programs. For more info., visit www.rosarian.org.
