GLT Meet Recap

Happy Thursday, USSC!

 

I appreciate your patience as I typed up a review from our weekend. We had so much to go over and review! Please know that all results were analyzed by my eyes only (and I triple checked my work!) but if I did miss anything, please let me know!

 

We had a fantastic weekend at the GLT Tsunami Prelim/Final swim meet. We had many swims that were personal best times, many Michigan Age Group Championship times achieved, and many Michigan Regional Championship times achieved. USSC was also very well represented in the finals session each evening.

 

As coaches, we love to see time drops. Importantly, following this weekend, we also saw so much improvement with racing skills and stroke technique. Our swimmers cheered each other on, celebrated each other’s accomplishments, and demonstrated what it means to be a part of a team. There were many opportunities to learn from races and the prelim/final experience that our athletes will carry with them to championship season and future meets.

 

A special note from Coach Stephen for SR swimmers:

“I was very pleased with the effort and execution of races by the senior swimmers. I think the thought they put into their racing really reflects the work they’ve done so far this season. Overall SR White averaged 80% best times and gained some very valuable prelim/final racing experience.”

 

The coaches and I are looking forward to what is ahead as we near the new year. Swimmers should be proud of our accomplishments following the weekend, but also remember that we have a lot to look forward to in the weeks and months ahead.

 

We are looking forward to continuing the hard work in the pool! Please check out to complete review below! Awesome job, USSC!

 

I will see you on the pool deck.

 

Coach Kayla
