I wanted to take a minute to recap how our athletes did at the Florida Age Group Championships and Senior Champs. These are two meets with very demanding qualifying times. We took a total of 3 athletes the past two weekend to these meets and overall our team did very well!
FLORIDA AGE GROUP CHAMPIONSHIPS (FLAGS): Bella Slagter represented us well at FLAGS two weekends ago finishing in Top 8 in 4 out of the 6 events she swam. Bella qualified in 50,100,200,500 Freestyle and 100 & 200 IM. She swam amazingly well and achieved all best times in all 6 events. Way to go Bella!
SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS: Two athletes represented the Blue Fins over last weekends Senior Championships: Celina Myers and James Rose. James qualified in several events for this meet. He swam the 50 & 200 Freestyle, 200 & 400IM, 50 Breaststroke and 100 Back. James made it back to finals in all 6 events that he swam placing in both Top 8 and Top 16 for all. He earned several best times over the course of two days! Celina qualified in 100 and 200 Breaststroke which earned her two bonus swims: 50 fly and 50 back. Celina made it back to finals for both breaststroke swims scoring Top 8 and Top 16 and two best times!
We are extremely proud of these three and hope that we can take more Blue Fins in the future.
