On November 24th we held our Turkey Splash meet with 135 TWST athletes participating. It was wonderful to have the majority of our team together and swimming fast. It was inspiring to see so many relays, a great team bonding opportunity for all. Thank you parents for your help to run this event. We have 38 swimmers who have completed their IMX this season and these swimmers will be receiving bag tags by the end of December. Our team goal is to top last year’s number of 99 swimmers, we can do it! The IMX report is found under the Swimmers Tab. Also, check out our Swimmers of the Meet & Month posted on the website. All Meet Results can be found under the Meets/Events Tab.
TWST had 53 swimmers compete at the Star Invite December 6th-9th at ECC. We placed 4th overall and broke 4 TWST Records!! Some highlights were Liam Clark crushing a 26 year-old TWST record in the 9-10 Boys 50 breast and 2 days later breaking his 100 breaststroke record again this year! Dibby Walters, Natalie Kassirer, Elle Noecker, Ella Krumpek teamed up to break the TWST 11-12 girls 200 Medley Relay record by .02 seconds! 59% of our swims were best times which is impressive for this point in the season. It proved to be a very competitive weekend but we did have 2 Individual High Point recipients- Elle Noecker was 1st for 11-12 Girls and Ella Mikulec was 3rd for 13-14 Girls! Congratulations to all!!! A special thanks to all of our parents who volunteered to time.
TWST Christmas/Holiday Party!! Monday, December 17th at Orchard Park High School- White & Blue Teams are 5:30pm to 6:30pm. Silver, Junior & Senior Teams are 6:45pm to 7:45pm. This is something our swimmers look forward to every year! We will organize some fun relays and games in the pool.
