Less than a month after our last meet in Carson City nearly 40 TTST swimmers attended the Mardi Gras Mania in Minden, NV. It was a last chance qualifier for the 2018 SCY Junior Olympics. Enthusiasm was high and results were very impressive! At the end of the meet we had 20 swimmers qualified for the 2018 SCY Junior Olympics, 30 seasonal leader board times broken, and first time meet for a few swimmers!
TTST Swimmer of the Meet for girls: Lola
TTST Swimmer of the Meet for the boys: Kaleb (2nd meet in a row!)
First time swim meet: Brisa raced for her first time and posted some impressive results earning her a group promotion to the Regional training group. Summer also joined her first meet. It was a pleasure to see them both do so well at their first competition with TTST!
Outstanding races: Lola and Kaleb both earned swimmer of the meet with all best times and the highest quality improvement scores of the squad.
30 new seasonal leader board times were accomplished by the following swimmers: Kaikea, Ryan, Rowan, Cameron, and Josh for the boys. Megan D., Brooke, Alyssa, Claudia, Calissa, Reese, Emily, and Brynn for the girls.
New Junior Olympic qualfiers from this years meet were Lola 200 Breast, Maris 200 Free, Rowan 100 Back, Kaleb 50 Free, Cameron 50 Back, and Brynn 200 Free. This was a first time ever making a Junior Olympic time for Maris who now earns the team title of TTST Age Group All - Star!
Big thank you to all the TTST coaching staff, Meitri, officials, Kissinger family, Hynes, Ferrera, Darzynkiewicz, and all our parent timers! USA Swimming would not operate without the volunteers it has, so thank you very much!
