Announcements

  • Age Group State: Congratulations to our Age Group team: Collin Anderson, Everett, Burns, Dom Daggy, Lance Thompson, and Christopher Tran, on a great weekend of fast racing. Those 5 boys scored 61 points at the championship! Special shout out to Collin who will be representing Team Indiana in Ohio at this week’s Central Zone Championship. We know he will make us proud!

  • Divisionals: This weekend is the divisional championship meet. Please go follow the link for the most up to date information as well as the athlete entry report to see what your kids are swimming. If you have signed up for the meet but do not have a divisional cut, you will not be able to participate in the meet.

  • Championship team recognition: This Wednesday, at 6:00 during practice we will have a little recognition for those athletes who participated and will participate at Championship level meets this summer.

As a reminder, this is simply an “at-a-glance” calendar and does not reflect days off for holidays, meets, other closures, etc… For the specific weekly/monthly calendar, those can also be found under the “Group Calendars” tab on the website.

Coach’s Segment

This weekend was the Indiana Age Group State Championships, and the athletes that participated represented LST very well.  Swimming is often seen as an individual sport and it is easy to behave that way. We had terrific team support and even had teammates return to finals (that they were not swimming in) just to cheer on their teammates. Here is the challenge: We, LST, have to be the best “TEAM” on any pool deck. Nobody out cheers, out supports us!

If anyone has any questions, concerns, suggestions, etc… please feel free to contact me. I can be reached at: joel.elber@gmail.com, (317) 517-5348

Go LST!
