A fantastic performance by our 24 attending swimmers at the 13 & Over Silver Bronze Championships at the Berkeley Aquatic Center over the weekend; everyone was on! Our 125 splashes earned 46 Top-10 finishes, 85 Career Best Times, 48 Silver Times, and two new Gold times! Amazing!
Congrats to Andrea Carlson (100 Breast, 200 Free), Ethan Cross (100 Breast), Sean Sharma (100 Breast), and Hannah Soutter (100 Back, 200 Fly) for their First Places! Other Top-3 places were swum by Jillian Berg, Andrea Carlson, Anthony Carlson, Jacob Leddy, and Grace Maruska; a total of 14 in all.
Andrea Carlson (100 Breast) and Jordan Maruska (200 Free) both swam to Gold, fleshing out their entries at Senior Championships and JOs respectively. There were also an impressive 48 Silver times earned!
As exciting as these finishes were, nothing thrills the coaches more than seeing their swimmers swim WELL. Best times are great (and 85 Career Best Times isn’t something to disregard), but good swims encompass more- and that’s what they saw this weekend!
Congrats to all of swimmers on a truly great season, and good luck to those moving on to JOs, Senior Championships, and the Speedo Sectionals in Ithaca, NY.
