Meet Recap:
This past weekend saw GOAL swimmers at two meets--Friday Night at the Races at Brownell-Talbot and the Empire Kansas City Movember Invite.
This was the second Friday Night at the Races that Brownell-Talbot has hosted and it was a great meet for our swimmers. These one night session meets are a good way for athletes to gain meet and race experience and also try new events. We saw many athletes swimming events for the first time and also quite a few big time drops! Most notably: Andi Holt dropped 32 second in the 200 Free and 4 seconds in the 50 Back; Lilly McCandless dropped 4 second in the 200 Breast and 19 seconds in the 200 Free; Josie Wissink dropped 5 seconds in the 50 Breast; Tristian Shanahan dropped 3 seconds in the 100 Breast; Mallory Mowat dropped 9 seconds in the 200 Free; Olivia Maas dropped 11 seconds in the 200 Free; Elle Behne (Turtle) saw time drops in everything and gained 2 more D1 cuts. Great job everyone!
The Empire Kansas City Movember Invite was held in Lenexa, KS and was a great travel meet opportunity for our athletes. The facility there is great and it's a nice chance for our GOAL swimmers to compete against athletes from a different LSC. Down there we saw Aiden York make finals in 5 of 6 events and saw time drops in the 200 Back (3 seconds) and 100 Fly (2 seconds); Meredith Finigan dropped in her 200 Back to make finals; Bryce Evans dropped time in all of his events (including a 23 second drop in the 500 Free!) and made finals in the 100 Back; Eli Christensen saw time drops in all of his events; Mia Mendlick won the 10 and under high point and saw big time drops in the 100 Fly (6 seconds) and the 50 Fly (6 seconds); Olivia Enenbach got runner high point, winning all but one of her events, and saw time drop in her 100 Breast (3 seconds). Great job everyone!
Congratulations to all our athletes who competed this past weekend!
