Last Saturday was a great day of swimming by our Little Swordfish at the YMCA 8&Under Championships held at Raritan Valley Community College. Our 11 attending swimmers, aged 6-8, earned top places, Career Best Times, and even 5 new Team Records.
Leading the way with some top finishes were Kai Batchelor with a 3rd Place in the 25 Breast and a 4th in the 50 Free; Salome Calderon splashed in with a 6th Place finish in the 25 Fly; Chris Gutierrez placed 3rd in the 25 Back and followed it up with a 6th in the 25 Free; Madeleine Leonard scored a 5th Place in her 25 Back; and Aiden Zachowski rocked the blocks with a 2nd in the 25 Fly and a 4th in the 25 Free.
There was 18 Career Best Times earned by Kai Batchelor (25 Breast, 50 Free); Salome Calderon (25 Fly, 25 Free); Stella Connolly (25 Breast, 25 Free); Chris Gutierrez (100 IM, 25 Back, 25 Free); Madeleine Leonard (25 Back, 25 Breast, 50 Free); Nadia McAuley (25 Breast, 25 Fly, 50 Free); Lauren Pojedinec (25 Free); Zach Sprung (25 Free); and Aiden Zachowski (25 Fly, 25 Free).
And if that wasn’t impressive enough, 5 new Team Records were set by Kai Batchelor (50 Free, 25 Breast); Christopher Gutierrez (25 Back); our Boys 100 Medley Relay (Zachowski, Gutierrez, Sprung, Batchelor); and our Boys 100 Free Relay (Batchelor, Sprung, Zachowski, Gutierrez).
Amazing job swimmers, you make us proud!
