Amazing Age Group State Championships

An Amazing Swim Team State Championships


Avery Harrington, Parker Kortas, Jenna Smith, Annika Fahrner and Lily Starkey attended the Colorado Age Group State Championships this past weekend. They were amazing! SSST had a great State Meet. Some highlights are listed below:

Avery swam a Sectional and Zone cut (2:29.44) in the 200 breaststroke, dropping 8.26 seconds from her previous best time. Avery had a swim off for the 100 free for an alternate position. She won in a very exciting finish with a time of 55.40.

Parker dropped another 2 seconds off her 200 breaststroke (2:29.95) and will be headed to the Sectional Championships in Iowa on Thursday to swim the 100 and 200 Breaststroke. Go Parker!

Jenna had second swims and best times in most of her events and achieved her first Zone cut in the 100 back (1:04.22), dropping 3.5 seconds from her previous time. She also accomplished her long term goal of breaking 27 in the 50 free with a time of 26. 91. Jenna also dropped over 2.5 seconds in 100 breast (1:16.94)

The girls dropped 4.55 seconds in the 4 x 100 medley relay (Avery/ Parker/Lilly/Anni).

I am so proud of these Steamboat athletes and families. If you see the girls and families around town please congratulate them.
