From Coach Jordan:
The meet marathon is over! After two meets in a week, and a lot of time dropped, we’ve made it through to the final leg of the season. The kids were great this last weekend, with some fast swims, more time drops and a couple more championship times to boot. Friday night, Gannon Crosser got his 200 Free State cut, going on to have a great meet with a second drop in his 50 Free, 100 breast and 50 breast. Saturday, Dray Caldwell was able to snag a third Divisional cut for the 50 free, with another four second drop in the 100 breast for him. Jaden Huber had a good weekend, getting a 2 second drop in his 100 back. Jacob Havice dropped a lot of time this weekend, being out only 8 and under boy. Jacob dropped 3 seconds in his 25 fly, 4 seconds in his 25 breast, and another 2 seconds in both the 100 fr and 25 back! And finally, rounding out the boys for the weekend, Zach Butler continued to give the rest of the boys a run for their money with an official 14 seconds dropped in his 100 back and another 3 seconds in both the 50 and 100 Breast. The girls also had a strong showing, even if we looked a little tired. Hannah Crosby dropped almost a second in both her 100 back and breast this weekend, continuing to inch ever closer to her divisional cuts! Emma Day had a nice two-second drop in her 50 fly, continuing to improve in the stroke. And finally, Ali Smith brought home our time drops for the weekend with almost 3 seconds in the 200 free and 100 breast, 2 seconds in the 50 free and another second in both the 50 breast and 100 free. The other Mt. Lions, although no time drops (which is perfectly okay this time of season), swam with the determination that I expect, never letting their times get in the way of the next race, always stepping up to swim their hardest. So with the close of the second meet, we turn to towards the last few of the seasons. Goals have been set, the kids of ready, and I am very excited to see where we all end up!
From Coach Annalisa:
The Tigers and Jags were back in action in Fishers this weekend at the Mudsock Classic! McKenna Alexander swam her way to best times in the 200 IM and 100 fly, while Alexis Finney grabbed a best time in the 200 IM. Ellie Alexander posted two best times and made it back to the finals in the 200 free and 100 free, placing 19th in the 200 and 18th in the 100. Logan Barnard, Colton Fauquher, and Madalynn Parker raced their way to two best times. Mason Kennedy dropped time in the 100 back and Molly Crosby dropped time in the 50 breast. Faith Little achieved the most best times, including time drops in the 50 free, 50 breast, and 100 breast. After a long weekend of swimming, we are ready to get back to work!
