From Coach Jeannine:
WOW! What a
great state meet. Congratulations to each and every athlete who
participated, this was truly a team effort. Words cannot express
the effort put forth by the athletes, parents, and
coaches throughout the weekend. It is with great pride to be head
coach of such a great organizations. Throughout the meet our
athletes and parents showed such great unity, class, and humility.
I wouldn't want to be part of any other organization in the state!
The coaches are so proud of the way our Tigers performed throughout
Aquatics showed great team unity typically on the relay
events. One of the
most memorable relays was the 11-12 girls 200 medley relay who
took first from lane 7! (Johannah Cangelosi, Kirby Black, Gabi
Fouchi, Jenna Vanhoogstraten) Wow...it was an amazing
race.....I am pretty sure the Spar Aquatics Center shook from
all the cheering.
Tiger Aquatics fell short to a close 2nd place, less than 300
points, I feel very confident that we will regain our 2nd place
spot this summer without a few DQ's & our older athletes
swimming a full load of events.
From Coach Monica:
by far the most exciting State meet! We had so many great
swims, I don't know where to start. Congratulations to our
individual State Champions: Johannah Cangelosi, Thomas Baxter,
Mason Nyboer, and Daniel Woodruff. Also, a big
congratulations to our 11-12 girls Medley relay State Champions!
Words cannot begin to describe how proud I am of the season we
had. These kids have worked so hard this year, and many even
surprised themselves with their achievements. It gives me
great pleasure to coach this wonderful group of athletes.
Congratulations again to each of our state meet participants!
From Coach Timmy:
Great job this weekend! Cubs doubled the number of kids that
qualified for state, and we are looking forward to even more kids
qualifying this summer! Every swimmer raced hard and swam faster or
right on his or her best time. The relays were fun to watch and
looked even more fun to swim! Congrats to Anacelia for making the A
final of the 50 fly as only an 11 year old! Maddi Geyer was 9th in
the 50 back and close to making it back in other events as well. I
am looking forward to a great season of training!

As we move forward

change. While the change is not permanent it will certainly be a
test to the dedication and the adaptability of our athletes,
coaches, and parents. Please be reminded that every coach
has the best interest of your child and their progress in the
sport of swimming. Like always we will be sure to do whatever
possible to give them the best opportunity to swim fast!
