When FAST swimmers travel to compete against the Farmington Frogs, thoughts of touch pads, ice cream sandwiches, and good sportsmanship come to mind.

The Frogs know how to get in the spirit by turning the pool green before each meet as a longtime Farmington tradition. They make every swimmer feel welcome with a handshake after a close race and a treat on your way out. With spirits high, the Makos saw many large time drops throughout the night and improved to 3 – 1 on the season with a 589 – 500 win over Farmington.
