Meet Report for2021 CENTRAL ZONE Section 3 Spring SPEEDO Sectionals

2021 Central Zone Section 3 Spring Speedo Sectionals

March 25 – 28 (Open Event meet for any qualifying swimmer)

Sectional Time Standards with Qualifying preiod from June 1, 2019  through March 25. 2021:

The spring 2021 Central Zone Speedo Sectionals was held from March 25 - 28 at two sites: IUPUI Natatorium in Indianapolis and Elkhart Health & Aquatics in Elkhart, Indiana.  The Section 3 task force, consisting of coach representatives from all the Section 3 LSCs, had been meeting in an effort to create a meet that did provide a safe, competitive opportunity this past March for qualified Section 3 athletes.  The meet was conducted in Long Course Meter format, with no relays, and on a timed-final basis. Our Swimmer competed at the Elkhart meet site. To put this meet in perspective, this meet ranks at a higher level due to qualifying times to our YMCA National Championship.
Both meet sites had top Nationally Ranked swimmers participating in these two Sectional sites. What a great opportunity for our SPY Swimmers to take on  this challehge to race it up a few days before competing at our YMCA Ferstival Championship from March 31-April 3. For instance if you check out the combined results, Blake Pieroni age 25 set meet record in 200m Free with 1:48. 37. The Men's 100m Breaststroke had a tie for first place as well as new meet record of 1:00.31 by Cody Miller age 29 & Joshua Matheny age 18. Lilly King age 24 also sett meet record in 100m Breaststroke with 1:05.32
Big Congrats to our SPY Swimmers: Evan Blazer, Jaden Humphrey, Christian Narcelles, Jarrett Payne, and Kaylee Price
