What an incredible weekend of swimming by the LAC swimmers! We had a too many best times to count but I'm going to estimate that 85% of the swims were best times. We had a ton of new Junior Olympic qualifying times, 4 new individual Sectionals qualifiers, and 2 new club records! Also, 10 year old girl, Ashley Mellinger won the high point for her age group (girls 9-10). Plus Mia Parry (6th G 9-10), Brody Reber (4th B 9-10), Jack Martin (6th B 9-10), Ava Knopsnyder (8th G 11-12), Hannah Hurleman (8th G 13-14), and Nick Lynam (3rd B 15&over) all placed top 10 in scoring for their age group.
As a team we placed 4th overall with 1,562 points. The girls came in 4th with 839 points and the boys came in 2nd with 723 points. This was a huge improvement for last year. In 2017 our boys placed 9th with 394.5 points and our girls placed 11th with 266.5 points. I don’t have the combined standings but last year’s combined points was 661 points. That’s a 901 point improvement from last year. And that is NOT a result of the meet having lesser competition.
Congratulations to all! Now it’s time to get back to work and have some fun over the holidays! Here’s looking for a great 2nd half of the season, just like the first half!!!
Happy Holidays and Thanks again for helping the kids have a great weekend in the pool!!!
