KYAT swam really well at State over the weekend. We had around 85% best times! Joseph Biesinger set a new KYAT record in the 100 Breastroke with a 1:06.92 for 13-14 boys. Syndney McElwee had numerous best times, including a fantastic race on the girls 200 Medley relay where she passed the competition on the last 25! Mehlissa Young also dropped time in almost every race, she dropped 10 seconds in her 200 free and made the finals. Katelyn Riddle improved in many races including the 1000 Free where she dropped 16 seconds and finished in 3rd place! Ben Eberly competed in 5 events including the 50 breast where he made it back to consolation finals. Bridger Scott represented us in 3 events in the 10 & U boys with drops in almost every event. Tayler Tho qualified in 5 events and dropped time in those events. She finished in 12th place in the 50 free.
A Big thank you to the parents for all the support over the weekend, for driving through the rain and snow and getting kids to relays. Big thank you to the relay swimmers who all did really well. Long Course State is a short 3.5 months away, Let's work hard and get even more swimmers qualified for the Summer Championships!
