We are proud of our 5 swimmers for qualifying for this season’s 11-14 JOs at Rutgers University over the weekend. They joined hundreds of swimmers from about 60 different teams for a weekend of fast swimming.
Our Barracudas Jillian Berg, Zach Bezold, Anthony Carlson, Jordan Maruska, and Sydney Mills did not disappoint. Of their 24 swims, 19 were Career Best Times for about 53 seconds of improvement collectively.
Despite having a tough itinerary over the weekend that included 750 yards of Fly, Jillain Berg made finals in the 400 IM (44th Place), 100 Fly (19th Place), and the 200 Fly (19th Place). She also set new team records in the 100 and 200 Fly!
Jordan Maruska was simply unstoppable. All of her 11 splashes were best times, making Finals in 6 of her 7 events: 100 Free (10th Place), 1000 Free (4th Place), 200 Back (15th Place), 200 Free (3rd Place), 200 IM (23rd Place), and 500 Free (10th Place). She set new team records in the 50 Free, 100 Free, 200 Free, 500 Free, 100 Free, 200 IM, and 200 Back and earned 47 points.
Zach Bezold dropped 4.52 seconds to set a new team record in the 200 Breast!
Our girls team finished 26 out of 60 teams.
Congratulations to the entire crew, and good luck to our swimmers at Senior Open Championships next weekend.
