Bowdoin Open Meet Report

Bowdoin Open

Hosted by Bowdoin Swim Association

Bowdoin College

Friday, December 8th – Sunday, December 10th

 

               At the Bowdoin Open this year the Porpoises had a record number of 50 swimmers competing at the meet. Though there is always room for individual improvement, regardless of result, the team did exceedingly well, finishing with another third-place finish overall. Many next level NAG times were established, as well as new qualifying times for championship meets in March that include Maine Junior Olympics at Bowdoin, Central Zone Long Course Sectional at Wisconsin, and the 14 & under single age Age Group Classic meet in Florida, as well as the USA Swimming FUTURES long course meet in August at Virginia.

I am very proud of the firsts 14 weeks of the season and the next level work the swimmers have done to get to that next level. I am also very thankful for our assistant coaches, Jacob, Erin, Lauren, and Jen, that did such a fantastic job assuring that your swimmer(s) was cared for and ready to race at the meet this past weekend.

So on to the next challenge – the next 16 weeks leading up to Junior Olympic Trials meet at Bath YMCA, the long course Sectional meet at Wisconsin, the Junior Olympic meet at Bowdoin, and lastly, the Single Age Group Classic meet at Florida! As we seek to continue to build on the success of the first half of the season I ask each swimmer on the team, what one thing will you do consistently better than you did the first half in order to get better? Nutrition? Attention to detail? Attendance? Any one thing done consistently better over the course of 16 weeks can add up to big time drops, higher placing, and more points for PPSC in March.

Great work so far, Porpoises! Let’s keep it movin’!
