2017 LONG COURSE SEASON RECAP FROM COACH MIGUEL

2017 LONG COURSE SEASON RECAP FROM COACH MIGUEL

What a great and awesome Long Course Season we had! Our NAC Otter swimmers improved SO much this summer! Great practice attendance, effort and good old fashioned work really paid off with a fantastic season! Thank you swimmers and parents for all you did to make this the best season we have ever had! 

Here is a short recap of the last two meets we swam in and some notable performances:

 

New Mexico State Meet "Best in NM"! 

We had 14 swimmers attend the State Meet in Farmington three weeks ago. The NAC Otter Team placed fourth overall against 18 Teams! Compared to NM Teams with less than 120 members we came in FIRST in both boys and girls! Compared to the other two Santa Fe Teams combined we had 165.5 points to their 17 points. 

We had three NAC swimmers score High Point Awards! Aksel Boukhalfa (10), Nico Roth (12) and Sophia Corder (12)! Great swims! Of Note, Ethan Manske (13) made the cut for the Western Zone Championship meet in the 800 Free. He also went all "Iron Man" on us and swam the 200 FLY three times at State!

Western Zone Championship "Best in the West"! 

Seven NAC Swimmers out of 48 total NM swimmers qualified for this super fast and very competitive meet in Sacramento California last week. Team NM placed 9th out of 26 Teams! The "Best Swimmers in the West" were on hand and Team NM and our own NAC swimmers did not disappoint at all!

NAC swimmers were: Aksel Boukhalfa (10), Sophia Corder (12)Chelsea Griscom (14) Ethan Manske (13), Michael Osborn (14), Nico Roth (12) and Sophia Snyder (14). We all had a great time and our kids swam super fast!

Michael Osborn (14) and Nico Roth (12) had some exceptional swims. Nico placed 11th in the 400 IM and swam the 45th fastest time this year in that event in the Western US! Michael placed 6th in the 1500 FREE and he swam the 19th fastest time this year in the Western US! Top 200 Performances in the United State for both of our swimmers! 

Michael Osborn (14) and Sophia Snyder (14) also earned several Sectionals Cuts and hopefully will be swimming Short Course Sectionals in the Spring in Wisconsin! 

Great job to all!

 

HAVE FUN. SWIM FAST!
