The BSR 'Orange' Barracudas

 

Who Are the Orange Barracudas?

The BSR "Orange Barracudas" Swim Team is a great group of swimmers, ranging in age from 5-18, with a wide spectrum of skills and abilities. The team competes in the Prince-Mont Swim League (PMSL) which is comprised of teams from Prince George’s County, Montgomery County, Charles County, Anne Arundel County, Howard County, Calvert County, and the District of Columbia.

Each division in PMSL typically has 6 teams who swim against each other in 5 Saturdays in June and July. In late July, the top swimmers from each team in each Division compete in a "Divisional Championship Meet" with all 6 teams represented. The last meet is the PMSL All-Star Meet with the top swimmers from across PMSL  competing against each other.
