The Coaching Staff is exceptionally proud of the high level of competition the team has put forth over the course of the past three weekends (Wisconsin Regional Championships, Wisconsin 12&U Championships, Wisconsin 13&O Championships)! Congratulations to all who have represented the Elmbrook Swim Club at the Wisconsin Championship level.
There were many highlights from the Wisconsin Championship meets, but I wanted to highlight a few record setting swims. Congratulations to the following for setting new Wisconsin Swimming State Records:
Margaret Wanezek established a new Wisconsin Swimming State Record in the 50 Backstroke with a time of 26.15 and the 100 Backstroke with a time of 55.95. Both of these swims (50 & 100 Backstroke) are ranked first in the nation by USA Swimming.
