I hope everybody is enjoying a little break from the pool. I just wanted to drop everybody an email congratulating the team on a very successful long course season. This has been my best season as head coach in my career.
First should out goes to everybody who helped us run 2 successful meets this summer. Our Birdland Invite had over 400 athletes and Regionals had over 300!! That was the largest Regional meet we've hosted in years. Special thanks to Sean Hostetter, Angela Loper and Kim Lammers for hosting those 2 meets.
Regionals was a huge success with 39 athletes competing and 27 new ISI Q times!!!
ISI LC Champs were the following weekend at the CRWC at the University of Iowa. Here are a few highlights.
38 athletes competed

The 13-14 girls placed 3rd overall

Anthony Carbone won 13-14 boys high point award

Lauryn Schieffer took 3rd overall in the 13-14 girls division

Natalie Galluzzo won both 100 and 200 breaststroke

Anthony Carbone won the 200 breaststroke and the 200 IM

Approx 70% best times

Congrats to everybody who swam at the ISI LC Champs!



We had 6 athletes compete at the Central Zone meet held in Oklahoma City, OK.

Shout out to Natalie Galluzzo, Lauryn Schieffer, Maggie Bice, Lindsey Loper, Anthony Carbone and Sophia Hostetter.



A couple of highlights;

Anthony Carbone took 2nd overall in the 100 and 200 breaststrokes.

Natalie Galluzzo took 2nd overall in the 100 breaststroke and 5th in the 200.



Zones is the next level meet after ISI Champs for 14 and Under athletes. It requires AAA times to qualify.



We currently have 11 athletes qualified for Spring Sectionals!! That is 3 more than this time last year!



Again, thanks to everybody for the amazing season. Enjoy a short break. Please stay active!!! Use those bands!!!!
