Our state-qualifying swimmers made quite a splash at the YMCA 13&Over State Championships at Franklin Marshal College in Lancaster, PA over the weekend. Our 5 individual swimmers, 400 Medley Relay, and 3 swimmers who swam in time trials earned Team Records, 14 Career Best Times, Top Places, a few National times, and more.
Top 16 Places were earned by Emily Haudek who finished 8th in the 100 Fly for 11 points ; Sam Russell who took 7th in the 100 Breast, 10th in the 50 Free, and 16th in the 100 Free for a total 20 points; and Emily Rothamel who came in 15th in the 200 Back for 2 points. Three of our swimmers, Emily Haudek (100 Back, 100 Fly, 200 Back, 200 Free); Emily Rothamel (100 Back, 200 Back); and Sam Russell (100 Breast, 100 Free, 50 Free) made it back to finals in their events.
Sam Russell (50 Free, 100 Breast, 100 Free) and Emily Haudek (100 Back, 200 Back) set 5 new Team Records over the three days.
Three of our Swordfish also qualified for the USA Swimming Eastern Zones Speedo Sectionals: Emily Haudek (100 Back, 200 Back, 100 Fly); Emily Rothamel (100 Back, 200 Back); and Sam Russell (50 Free). Wow!
And a BIG congratulations to Emily Rothamel (100 and 200 Back) and Emily Haudek (200 Back, 100 Fly, 100 Back) who earned 5 YMCA National Times! They will both be traveling to YMCA Nationals in Greensboro, N.C. later this month.
Congrats to all of our swimmers!
