Internet issues prevented the sending of yesterday's news.
Congratulations to everyone who competed in the Sectional meet this past weekend. While MAC had no top finishers several team records were broken. Individually, Lauren James lowered her own records in the 11-12 girls 100 and 200 breaststroke; Nikki Hyrkas claimed the 15-16 girls 500 free record; Kiersten Bell lowered her own mark in the 17-18 girls 1000 free and Katelyn Rossick reset the mark in the 17-18 girls 400 IM. Two new relay records were set. The team of Margot Manning, Joanna Yeh, Jessica Jimenez, and Kiersten Bell established a new Open Girls 400 Free record and the team of Ally Long, Lauren James, Hanne Borgersen, and Margot Manning took down the 1999 record in the Open Girls 200 Medley Relay.
