There were just 3 Bronze
and Silver swimmers that competed at the Loveland Heart of Winter
Open and each swimmer did well and had a great time at the meet.
Each swimmer also had an opportunity to meet others swimmers on our
team. Fernando had an ok meet but was able to
learn many valuable lessons in his 100 IM race.
William had a good meet and took off an awesome 13
seconds in his 100 Breast. Addie crushed each race
that she had. She had 6 new best times including swimming the 100
Back and 100 Breast for the first time. She took off a total of
40.97 seconds at the meet. Great
We had such a great time
at the Loveland Meet, despite the threat of a winter
storm Saturday night
True to our annual tradition, our swimmers were making snow angels
(in their swimsuits) in the parking lot while waiting for warmups
to begin! :) We also had a super fun team dinner at
Mimi's Café, where we all had a chance to visit and laugh
outside of the pool!
the Junior and AG Gold swimmers
swam great! Three new State Cuts were
achieved: Samantha Synsvoll in 200
breast, Sinjin Schmeck in 100 breast,
and Elam Estella in 100 breast! Six new
Silver State Cuts were also achieved: Cardin
Nguyen in 100 back and 100 fly, Sienna
Schmeck in 50 free (she broke :30 for the first time!),
and Elam in 100 IM, 50 back, and 50 free!
Congratulations to all of you! Many, many best times were swum as
well. Monique Ardines swam ALL best times,
including a 6 second drop in her 100
back! Sienna dropped nearly 18 seconds in her 200
free and swam the 400 IM and 1000 free for the first
time! Sinjin (age 9) also swam the 400 IM for the
first time and liked it! Cardindropped nearly 8 seconds
in his 200 back! Elam dropped 8+ seconds in his
200 IM, 4 each in his 100 IM and 100 free, and 5 in his 100
back! Samantha dropped 5.5 seconds in her 200
breast and 2 seconds in her 200 free!
Ceylor Irwin dropped almost 9
seconds in her 100 back and 5.5 in her 100 free, as well as
swimming the 100 breast for the first time! Zoe
Harris dropped 4.5
seconds in her 50 breast! With that much success at one meet, it
will be very exciting to see where the end of the season and our
championship meets will take us!
During a cold and snowy
weekend in Loveland we had swimmers competing over the course of
three days at the Heart of Winter Invite. Besides some awesome snow
angles, in nothing but bathing suits, by some of our swimmers, we
also recorded some new personal best times. Leading the way was
Isaac Eilmes (100 back, 200 free, 200 IM and 400
IM). Following behind him was Maggie Frohnhoefer
who posted three best times (100 breast, 200 free and 200 IM), and
also posting three best times was Amaya Porter
(100 free, 200 back and 200 IM). With two new best times each we
had Jack Warmack (100 back and 200 free) and
Kambry Lightfoot (200 and 50 free).
