MTS Swimmers Shine at December Meets!
We sent 40 kids to the Excel Meet in Brentwood December 1-3. We had many swimmers make finals, had several new Southeastern Qualifiers, and one new Winter Juniors qualifier in Warren Turner (100 fly). For the meet, our swimmers swam lifetime best times in 68% of their races! We had 10 swimmers swim lifetime bests in 100% of their events – congratulations to Myles Bonner, Kentarrious Braxton, Leigh Bruno, Zach Byars, Mary Miller Goldberg, Elizabeth Hensley, Ryleigh Johnson, Spencer Quon, Paxton Smythe, and Amelia Steiner!
The next weekend Warren Turner joined Kiara Norris at Winter Juniors in Knoxville – this meet featured the best 18 and Under swimmers in the eastern half of the country. Warren followed up his new qualification by almost matching his time, and Kiara swam a lifetime best in the 100 fly. Overall, I felt like it was a successful fall for our program, with great things to come!
