The MAC seniors have had two season opening LC debuts, both at McClintock pool. They shined at the Neptune meet with the senior boys winning 6 out of the 8 events swum that day. Special recognition to John Dowd, winner of the 50 free and 100 back, Lincoln Randall winner of 50 and 100 breast, Jake Stoll 100 free winner and tied for 1st in 50 fly and Marshall McVeigh who also tied for !st in the 50 fly, proving MAC teammates know how to share. The MAC sprint squad showed their strength by talking the top 4 places in the 50 free and 6 out of the top 9 and 4 out of the top 8 in the 100 free. Aaron Williams and Kevin Krupitzer finished their first 100 LC fly strong and have a huge future ahead of them. Recognition also goes to Brian Krupitzer, Seth Maddy, Payton Sorenson and Abraham Hendryx for top 4 finishes in their events, and Kyle Miller for 2 5th places behind some teammates in both breastrokes.
The MAC senior girls had some great early season swims at Neptune, led by Makenna Schmidgall with a win in the 100 breast and top 4 finishes in the 50 fly and 100 free. Special recognition goes to Kayle Mashore in her first LC adventure with a 4th place 50 breast and several other quality first time swims. Madeline Lent, Easton Noel and Brianna Kidney also had some excellent season opening times in their races.
The seniors followed up their efforts at Neptune with another
good effort at the Rio meet. Cody Newton got things started in the
1500 meters with a 5th place in his first try at the metric mile,
joined by teammate Gabe Green who was also taking his first try at
it. One night two, Sydney Dahl stepped up and swam her first 200
meter IM in a very respectable 2:59 for a top ten, and backed it up
with 2 more top tens in the 50 and 100 backs.
The guys team showed their versatility by taking 6 out of the top 9 in the 200 IM led by Abraham Hendryx's second place. Congrats to Hugh Berryman, Spencer Glover, Gabe Green, Cody Newton and Brady Hemeyer for their efforts. Easton Noel and Molly Elkins impressed on the girls side with a second in the 50 back for Easton and two top 4 finishes for Molly in the 50 and 100 flys and fifth in the 200 free. The star of the meet for the ladies was definitely Hannah Caldas who won the 50 breast, 100 free, 50 free and for good measure dropped in a 2nd place in the 50 fly. Kyle Miller notched 4th place in the 200 breastroke, Abrahan Hendryx and Marshall McVeigh put down nice improvements in both the 100 back and 100 flys, as did Madeline Lent in 100 free, 100 back and 200 free. Makenna Schmidgall had some quality swims also, topped by a 4th place 100 breast, and Cody Newton finished the meet as he began it, with another quality distance swim this time for 2nd place in the 400 meter free. Congrats to all the seniors from both Kino and Skyline who got their season kicked off and we look forward to a summer of exciting swimming!
