Wishbone Meet Recap

SST had another successful meet at the Wishbone Invite on November 17-19 at Hamme Pool. We had the most swimmers in the meet and everyone kept their energy up on a long weekend. Our team spirit was high and everyone was having fun. It’s great to see where everyone is at during this time of the season, as we continue to gear up for our big spring meets. SST won the meet by 43 points, and we had multiple high-point winners. Talia Wentz, Fiona Secor, and Angela Huffer swept the 10&U Girls, Zeke Rasmussen was 3rd for 10&U Boys, Blaque Secor was 2nd for 11-12 Girls, Lauren White was 3rd for 13-14 Girls, Daniel Kim was 3rd for 13-14 Boys, Shannon McCallum was 1st for 15&O Girls, and Crieghton Beshears and Michael Lucero went 1st-2nd in the 15&O Boys. We also had one new team record when Blaque Secor broke her own 100 free record by swimming 1:00.05 leading off the 400 free relay. We also added many swimmers to the Alaska Championship Qualifiers list, as we had 100 Age Group Championship cuts, 124 Summer Championship cuts, 58 Junior Olympic Championship cuts, and 10 Senior Championship cuts! A special thank you to all our parents and volunteers, without your support none of this would be possible. Here are the weekend’s highlights:
