Fall Divisional Champs
Fun times and fast swims at this year’s Fall Divisional Championships. The format of a pentathlon for those Twelve and under, and Prelims and Finals for the 13 and over swimmers created a great competitive atmosphere and really helped inspire some great swims from the Kids.
Several kids in contention for top 6 in the pentathlon raised the level of their performance and walked away with best times and an award to show for it. Swimmers who participated in the prelim/final portion of the meet were extra motivated in their attempts to qualify for finals. Those who were fortunate enough to qualify for finals almost across the board improved their times in the finals session.
All in all it was a good weekend of swimming, despite some time delays in Saturday’s session. By Sunday, though, they had ironed out the wrinkles and everything ran smoothly. Congratulations to all the swimmers for a great weekend, and a successful finish to the first part of the short course season!.
