HLA competes with the best!
Over the last couple weekends our HLA athletes have been lighting up the scoreboards with some fast times. Over the week of July 11th -14th our Sectional Team which comprises of Mike Irvin, Chas Nolte, Ethan Reida, Reanne Reida, Johanna Schubert, Martha Walstad, Shelby Mullendore, Eli Vyhlidal competed in the Region VIII Speedo Sectional meet held in Jenks, OK. Over the course of the week we compiled almost all seasonal best times and 16 personal life time best times! Some of our relays were fast enough to make it on the HLA record board. Great job athletes! Coach Bach had a really fun week with you all and can’t wait to see what kind of speed and power you all have at the D1 Champ Meet.
This weekend we had 29 athletes compete in the Qualifier meet held in Fremont. We were blessed with great weather and a roof over our backstroke. LOL. Our HLA swimmers had trained hard for some of their last swims of the season and all of that hard work paid off. We had 5 Individual event winners, 25 brand new D1 Championship time cuts, and life time best times in almost every race we competed in. HLA was well represented and left a lasting impression on that pool.
We want to congratulate all the HLA swimmers and parents that took part in the Lincoln park and rec city championship swim meet. Our swimmers enjoyed some great successes on Saturday. There were many great swims. We would like to acknowledge Coltan Swarts for her record breaking swim in the 25 Butterfly. Congratulations again on some wonderful swims for your neighborhood teams.
As summer is wrapping up, please stay up to date on our Fall season plans, practice schedules, and upcoming meets.
-ALL THE WAY, Coach Bach
