Greetings MAC Fans!
It has been a busy two weeks for MAC swimmers!
Earlier this month MAC swimmers invaded California.
In Clovis Ca, Kelsey Ammons, Sydney Archibald-Wilson, Aidan Condit, Avery Maxwell, Isabella Seagrave, Lyndon Amon, Tanner Baldry, Sawyer Keyes, Simon McMahon, and Finnian Westenfelder, competed as part of Team Montana in the Senior Zones Championship meet.
Some highlights from that meet include Sawyer breaking the team record in the 200 Free with a 2:00.45! Aidan, Tanner, Simon, Isabella, Avery, Lyndon, and Finn all posted some new best times as well!
That same week Mari Aoki, Jessilyn Ecklund, Gabrielle Smart, and Darragh Mahns competed in the Futures Championships in Santa Clara, Ca. Futures is a relatively new meet and is part of USA Swimmings Championship Series along the the National and Junior National Championship Meets.
At Futures, Mari picked up personal bests and top 9 finishes in the 400 IM (9th) and the 200 Back (6th)! Jess finished 23rd with a strong finals swim in the 200 Back! Gabby finished 23rd in 400 IM and broke the team record finishing 14th in the 1500 Free with a 17:55.16!
A week later in Roseville, Addyson Lewis finished up the California invasion at the Western Zone Age Group Championships competing in 6 individual events and 3 relays!
Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the country Katharine Berkoff competed in the Junior National Championship in East Meadow, New York.
Katharine set the the Team and State Records in the 200 Back with 2:13.86 finishing 4th! She followed that swim up with a 5th place finish in the 100 Back!
Congratulations to all of swimmers for finishing up this Long Course season at their respective championship meets! I can't wait to see what Short Course Season has in store!
Enjoy the time off and I will see everyone on the pool deck on September 5th!
