Our 6 attending qualifying swimmers earned 13 Career Best Times and some top places, including scoring ones by Abbey Gardner (16th Place in the 200 Fly) and Sam Russell (5th in the 100 Breast and 1st in the 50 Free).
An AMAZING 10 new Team Records were set by Henry Bysshe (50 Back, 50 Fly, 200 Free); Michael Pacholarz (100 Fly, 400 IM); Abbey Gardner (200 Fly, 400 IM); Jake Riva (100 Back, 200 Back); and Sam Russell (50 Free).
And a special shout out to Sam Russell: after taking 2nd Place in the Prelims of the 50 Free with a new personal best time, she returned in finals and took First Place and earned her first Y National Time! She is the youngest swimmer on our team to ever earn a Nat cut, and will be joining Emily Haudek and Emily Rothamel when they travel to YMCA Nationals next week. Good luck girls!
