FLORESVILLE -- Back in early June, many of the area’s finest swimmers between the ages of 6 and 16 reunited to form the River Otters swim team. The group had another very successful season, and brought things to a close July 22.

After working hard for nearly two months, several members of the River Otters reaped the benefits of hard work by qualifying for the state competition. In total, 14 swimmers from the team qualified, but only five swimmers elected to make the trip to Waco for the meet. The Texas Amateur Athletic Federation Summer Games were held July 23-30 in Waco, and the River Otters were represented by Brennin Cardenas, Scott Cardenas, Jayme Little, Kerry Little, and Jude Skrobarcek.

Head Coach Susan Molina expressed how proud she was of her team this season, and also gave kudos to a special young man who returned to the program this season in a different capacity.

Matthew Yglesias, 16, joined the River Otters about four years ago. He learned to swim that summer, and then he and his family “caught the swimming fever,” as Molina put it. Matthew joined a year-round swim team in San Antonio, and then helped to coach his younger siblings this summer, as they swam for the River Otters.

“The swimmers like his calm coaching style,” Molina said. “This is what the Boys & Girls Club strives for -- building the leaders of tomorrow, today.

“Matthew has shown great leadership skills and the River Otters would like to thank him for all his hard work,” Molina added.

She went on to thank the numerous sponsors that helped make the River Otters’ season possible.

“We want to thank our great sponsors this year,” Molina said. “The city of Floresville, Miller Plumbing, Clean Swimming Pool Services, AAA Freight Salvage, Mr. Virgil Russell, Dr. David Fleitas DDS, Dr. Edward Elizondo DDS, and all the wonderful parents who stepped up and lent a hand in many ways.”
