Great job to all our swimmers last weekend, and a HUGE thank you to all the parents and swimmers who volunteered their time and talents to make the meet run smoothly. The high schoolers did very well. As the girls were in the middle of their tapper for sectionals they swam off events and showed great things to come at Sectionals. Sydney dropped 3 min. in her mile! Betsy made her first ever divisional cut and the mile! Seth dropped 30 sec. in his and Scott and Alex both made the State cuts in their miles. An extra shout out to Scott for going a life time best in the 100 breast. Chaila had a great time drop in her 400 free. Katie was just seconds away from the 200 back state cut, I know she’ll get it at divisionals. Chloe’ and Alexi completed their first 200 fly. They did a great job in a hard event. James received his senior gift of the 200 fly and can now graduate a well rounded swimmer! Katelyn made several divisional cuts and had a great race in the backstroke.
The Robin Lindsey meet was a great experience for my newer swimmers. First and foremost, I wanted to congratulate the swimmers who attended their first meet with us: Aubrey, Aakash, Max, Evan W., Bailey and Rebecca as a great first meet! I loved seeing all the hard work we’ve put in since the fall start to show in the pool during races. And of course, it was great seeing Hayden W.and Abby Z returning to swim their hearts out with some great swims! So thank you all for coming and swimming so well! I look forward to seeing everyone return for another meet, and hope to keep getting more to come out!
