A great weekend was had by our 14 & Under swimmers who joined others from 10 different teams at this season’s Treasure Island meet at Berkeley Aquatics in New Providence. The 47 splashes by our attending swimmers yielded Best Times, new Team Records, Top Places, and even a JO cut!
Improvement and growth were the big stories on the weekend. Our younger Barracudas exhibited improved technique and faster times. In a sport where success is often defined in 100ths of a second, our 12 NJB swimmers collectively earned about 80 seconds of improved time! Career Best Times were earned by Paityn Bates (100, 200 Free); Reese Berg (50 Fly, 100 Breast); Marcus Innamorato (200 Free, 200 IM, 50 Free); Ryan Juckett (50 Breast, 50 Free); Jonathan Kern (50 Free); Nathaniel Kern (100 Fly, 100 Free); Chris Kiederling (100 Free); and Addie Lillo (50 Free).
A special congratulations to Nathaniel Kern who earned a JO cut in his 100 Fly and set new NJB Team Records in 100 Free and 100 Fly!
Great job everyone!
