Albany Arauco Invite Meet Review

Albany Arauco Invite Meet Review

By: Coach Alex

 

If our last meet was an assessment of where we were at in the beginning of the long course season, this meet was a great opportunity to check in on our training now that we’re in the full swing of things. The meet went as good or better than we could have expected, it was really exciting to see swimmers go not only best times, but times faster than the goals that they set at the beginning of the season.

 

Some highlights from this meet: Victoria swam the 400 Fr against a group of much older swimmers and didn’t back down, AT ALL, dropping more than a minute off her best time and earned an A time by a sizable margin. Madigan dropped about 15 seconds in her 100 Breast and earned her first A time in the event.

Stand-out Athlete: Becca

Developing as an athlete extends far beyond improving a person’s physical abilities. Our mission statement states that we strive to create a community of not only excellent swimmers but quality people overall. This weekend Becca exemplified that mission statement, not only did she have some excellent stand-out swims, she also noticed when her younger teammates needed a hand. Sometimes something as simple as starting an event grid on someone’s arm or lending a pair of goggles can save a swim-meet for someone who isn’t quite as used to racing. I really can’t think of anything more excellent than a person willing to help others, even when no one is watching.
