The 2016-2017 season marked the most successful season in TMI swimming history. Both the boys and girls teams came in 2nd at the TAPPS STATE MEET! 8 school records were broken, the boys won 2 or the 3 state relay championships and there were two individual state champions with one breaking the all-time TAPPS STATE RECORD. TMI Boys & Girls teams have now won 6 Regional Championships and placed in the TOP 4 at State for a combined 5 times in the last 3 years.
In only the second year of the team the Splash won the 2017 AASSL Summer League Championship by over 600 points. We are very ready for the 2018 season to begin!

Coach Bailey LePage
After swimming for Coach Stephanie for the past 8 years Bailey decided to jump on in and start coaching last winter. She has done a fabulous job with the Winter Swim Groups coaching multiple groups and time a week and is now part of the full-time Splash Staff.
Bailey has a great eye for technique and a superb ability to read Coach Stephanie's mind, which is talent unknown to many that have tried. Coach Bailey is a fantastic and hopefully long-term addition to the Splash Coach Staff.
Welcome Coach Bailey!
