Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers and friends at Metro Aquatics for providing an end-of-summer competition opportunity for our athletes not qualified for a Champs meet! While we are disappointed we were unable to host prelims and finals sessions for our 11 and over athletes, we have learned over the past couple of years that even with best intentions and care, we cannot control who gets sick. We can be (and are!) thankful for the opportunity to compete at all!
It was wonderful to watch the different age groups cheer each other on from behind the lanes and for our more veteran athletes to take teammates under their wings! We had multiple athletes attending their first swim meet ever, and they all left with smiles on their faces!
A huge shout out to Jonah Bergerson (15), who not only had a stellar meet personally, but was also constantly on his feet and behind the lanes of UPAC swimmers. You were seen, Jonah! It might help that you keep on growing… Jonah dropped time in all of his individual events and is closing in on Senior Champs cuts - especially close in the 200 Back and 50 Free!
Congratulations to the following Sharks who earned AG Champs cuts:
Liam Cotter (14)
Madison Wolfe (13)
Tessa Hurguy (11)
Gigi Valle (10)
Dylan Wolfe (10)
