Between November 30 and December 16, Ohana was represented at 3 Champs Meets and Junior Nationals.
A few pictures attached: 1. Some of Ohana's athletes at Senior Champs , 2. Taryn Kooyers came to spectate at Junior Nationals and got the chance to try on the new TYR Venzo, 3. Saturday practice taking a break to send some good luck to College Station where Caitlyn Feely and Ella Lee swam at Age Group Champs, 4. Jordan Hennig at Junior Nationals. So wish I had more pictures!
Our athletes began at Senior Champs where they were asked to Just Race and/or Stay In The Race (even coaxed our parents to reinforce the mindset). It worked! And continued through all of the meets. So much of swim is mental at the meets - their bodies know what to do but will their minds let them dig in and be aggressive? December was certainly a showing of what they can do. Of 291 races, 244 were lifetime or season bests - that's 83%! Unbelievable at first glance; however, when they work these are the results they can expect.
Cannot wait to see what 2019 has in store for our kids!
