I also want to note that this group’s ability to come into a meet and surpass their ranking is fantastic!!  We can compete and are able to perform on demand.  The group can achieve seasonal and personal bests in the same competition time and time again.  It is exceptional work, and these athletes have done an exceptional job. As we transition into the path for Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, know that we are “Caltaf strong!” and we will continue to dream and achieve. Thank you for the support both on and off the field. Even greater things will come our way! Let’s go Caltaf! The world knows who we are and that we are coming!! Tokyo 2020.
