Great performance to all 'Iolani Swim Club swimmers during States Champs in Kihei (Maui)!
Our youngest swimmers Evan Wong, Kaylee Kodama and Ellie Ochiai did very well. Evan had great swims and got 9th in 50 and 100 BACK although he is only 8 years old and Kaylee scored at all her events with very good swims.
Excellent swims from Cameron Nakamura and Ryo Ariyoshi. Ryo's best swim was 50 BACK, where he got the 5th place in the 11-12 Age Group and he just missed the final by a very little bit in 100 BACK.
Cameron is our State Champion - he got the 1st place in 50 BREST and 200 BREAST with amazing swims and a potential to be close to the record in 50 BREAST in his age group. He took the 2nd place in 100 BREAST. Congratulations, Cameron! Good job.
Amos Jun had a very good meet. His best performance was 50 FREE, where he took the 2nd place and 3rd place in 100 BACK.
Good swims for Daniel Chae after a big break from swimming. He got 5th place in 100 and 200 BREAST.
Congratulations to our Sectionals Qualifiers - Cagla Brennan and Chase Nakamura! Cagla got her Sectional time in the 1mile FREE style swim. Cagla got 2nd in her age group and had an awesome swim. Cagla also accomplished a 2nd Sectional Time in 1000 FREE style swim and 3rd place in her age group. She is only 6th tenths away from her Sectional Time in 500 FREE, where she placed 4th. Good luck Cagla - you will get this one next time! Cagla also scored and had good swims in 200 FREE and 400 IM.
Our second Sentionals Qualifier, Chase Nakamuran achieved a great performance at his 100 BREAST, where he got 2nd place. He also got 2nd in his 200 IM and made top 6 in 50 FREE, 100 BACK and 200 BACK.
Great job everybody! Keep up the good work. Awesome performance at State Champs.
Thank you very much to the parents as well - for all your hard work and dedication during the 1st quarter of the swim season. We couldn't have done all that without you!
