YOTA Sets New Relay Record in Atlanta at Age Group Sectionals


Congratulations to all YOTA swimmers who competed at the Eastern Section Southern Zone Age Group Championships this past weekend in Atlanta, Georgia. YOTA swimmers set 69 personal best times over the weekend on our way to a 12th place finish overall out of 62 teams from around the southeast. Our ladies team finished in 5th place! Way to go ladies!

Congrats to the 10 & Under Ladies 200 Medley Relay of Lilly Welsh, Samantha Armand, Mia Oliaro, and Spencer Jennings in a time of 2:11.00! They beat 2nd place SwimMAC by over a second.

The 10 & Under Ladies 200 Free Relay of Samantha Armand, Mia Oliaro, Lily Welsh, and Spencer Jennings won in a time of 1:54.49. These ladies shattered the previous team record of 1:57.07 set by Mia Oliaro, Lily Welsh, Yasmine Kwong, and Spencer Jennings three weeks ago at NCS Age Group Champs. Congrats ladies!

Congrats to Lilly Welsh for breaking the 10 & Under 100 Backstroke! Her time of 1:08.93 broke the former record of 1:10.19 held by Rachel Bumgarder (1994) and Candice Cooper (2000). Great job Lilly!
