Meet Recap: Dixon
About 30 Stingrays swam to a win against Dixon and Freeport last Saturday at the Dixon Y. Standout swims included Max Labak’s 200 IM and Molly Ryan’s 500 free; both dropped a lot of time! Also, all of our relays won. While our DQs were down, finishes remain a challenge (backstroke must be finished on the back, and breaststroke and butterfly require simultaneous 2-hand touches). Parents can help by reminding swimmers right before they enter the bullpen (tip: write notes on their arm). We will also continue to work on flip turns and starting off the blocks, as some swimmers are hesitant to try new skills in meets, and that's okay! Overall, a great day—keep it up, RAYS.
