Oregon City Fall Open
Four of our squads went to Oregon City last weekend to race. AG3 Gold and AG2 Gold were there in the morning Sat with AG1 Gold and Senior 3 in the afternoon. We all got to be there together on Sunday and it was good for the younger swimmers to get to watch the big kids race! We saw lots of good racing and many personal bests were posted. A few highlights were :
AG3 Gold- Drew Downey breaking 2 OSI records and 4 team records! OSI records- 25 Free 15.9 (16.04 Naoki Aoyama UN, 2008) THSC- (16.43 J. Giuliano, 2013), and 100 Back 1:31.74 (1:34.43 K. Park THSC 2012) The other 2 THSC records were in the 100 Breast 1:49.85 (1:53.84 K. Park 2012), and the 50 Back 43.43 ( 44.08 K. Park, 2012). Congratulations to Drew!
AG2 Gold- We got a lot of personal best times and several Oregon B times!
AG1 Gold- AG1G had a goal of having not only faster turns but also extending our walls during their 100s and 200s. They definitely accomplished this goal. In multiple races our swimmers were able to win a tight race primarily on their turns. Most swimmers had not swam a short course meters meet in the past 8-12 months so it was almost all big time drops, we will take those anytime we can as the swimmers get older and start to mature. Overall it was a very fun and exciting meet.
Team Cheer. Our older swimmers did a great job leading this!!
