Candy Cane Meet Recap

SST had another successful meet at the Candy Cane Meet in North Pole. We finished in 2nd place overall but had the most ‘points per swimmer’ (pps). Though we didn’t have the depth due to our low numbers, our swimmers raced well and swam smart. The final scores were: NPAC (565 total pts, 62 swimmers, 9.11 pps), SST (458 total pts, 40 swimmers, 11.45 pps), and MSST (426 total points, 41 swimmers, 10.39 pps). We had 37% time improvements, multiple first-time swims, and had the lowest number of DQ’s with 6. Our swimmers are showing they can race hard, learn from each event, and know the rules...all great things leading to our spring meets. We also had many top-three high point winners including: Cooper Wentz (1st in 8&U boys), Talia Wentz (2nd in 9-10 girls), Zeke Rasmussen (1st in 9-10 boys), Ezrah Maio (2nd in 11-12 boys), Lauren White (2nd in 13-14 girls), Logan Fox (3rd in 13-14 boys), and Victoria Schachle (1st in 15&O girls). Congratulations to all of our swimmers! A special thank you to our parents and volunteers who continue to put on successful meets! Here are the weekend’s highlights:
