Here is a short recap of 2018 swims for NAC!
Syntal Invite, Texas Travel meet: This was our very first travel meet as a team and it was amazing. We traveled by van together and stayed together in Midland. On Sunday after finals we went bowling and had a pizza party to celebrate! We had ten swimmers competing in the qualifying section of the meet and we placed a really strong 5th out of 19 teams, that was with no relays. We had three high point winners, Sophia S, Sophia C and Aksel. Two swimmers, Michael and Sophia S made the top 8 50 Free shootout and both swam PB's in it (personal bests) it was so fun to watch! Henry made a Zones cut in the 200 Back. We made shirts before we left and wore them for Finals! FUN! Check out the meet results on meet mobile! Ethan, Henry, Aksel,Natalia, Chelsea, Jasmine, Michael, Sophia C, Sophia S, Cece and Matthew. Thank you to our logistics expert and chaperone Audrey and for all the help from Jackie and Mary Jane, your support was really appreciated! We will be back there next year for sure.
Bill Hudson Los Alamos: Great turnout for this meet, we had over half our team compete and many first time meet swimmers! Everyone had fun and we swam really well. We had several new NM State Cuts made, some made their first NM State cuts ever, Natalia made a Zones cut in the 200 Back too! Way to go team! Thank you experienced parents who helped our new families negotiate this meet.
NAC swimmers in the High School District: This weekend Chelsea won the 200 IM Final and placed second in the 100 Breast 1:11.55 Final which is the NEW Prep HS record, Brad, Jaque and Luke all made HS State with qualifying times or placing top two at this meet. In our district current, former or graduating NAC swimmers placed top three in nearly every event! Bella Corder from Carlsbad made HS State with a really fast 101.01 100 Back and placed second in the 500 and made HS State
We have many swimmers going to Chandler Arizona in two weeks for a great outdoor meet!
If you did not make a NM State cut please sign up for the NM "B" Championship meet!
It has been a great season so far, the excellent team meet participation and practice attendance have really helped us this year, keep up the fantastic work.
Get in one of these last meets please
Have a great day
