I normally get this out earlier, but we got the meet file today.
ASC’s Bryanna Bellile and Hallory Domnick were the last two standing in the WAVE Mayfly invite’s marquee event, the 50 Fly Austrailian Skins, last Saturday. Kate Schmoll, qualifying 8th, also made it through the first wave of cuts. In the Austrailian skins format, 8 finalists swim, and after the first heat, 2 are eliminated, then two more the next heat, then one eliminated from 4 to 3 to 2 to the eventual winner. Last year, Bryanna and Hallory made it into the skins event, and Bryanna was second. This year, Bryanna was first and Hallory was second. Sienna Nitke was the first alternate.
In qualifying for the finals Friday night, Bryanna also tied a team record in the 13-14 girls 50 Fly. Bryanna also scored the girls 13-14 and Senior team record in the 400 IM on Friday night, with Hallory also improving on her 15-18 girls team record in the 400 IM.
Friday night was also a good night for state cuts as Maia Smet earned her first one in the 500 FR, which will be a 400 meter FR this summer. Anthony Hendrickson also qualified for his second event, the 400 IM in his first time ever racing that event. Bryanna also newly qualified for the 400 IM in her first time racing that event in a few years.
Overall, ASC improved 48 of 99 events, for 48% best times. Only 2 DQ’s at this meet and only one new swim, which means most of those who entered this meet have done these events before. As we become a more older and experienced team, the number of DQ’s and new swims decreases, and a higher number of senior and high school aged swimmers normally means best times are harder to come by as they might have season best times but not yet surpass their championship times from the prior season.
Our next meet is at Howard in early June, and there is still time to sign up for that meet. The rest of our summer is:
May 31-June 2 Howard. This is our last meet for those enrolled as Spring only. If you wish to continue, you can extend the membership through the summer.
June 7-8 Shorewood at Schroeder Entries are closed for this one
June 15-16 Fox Cities Y Classic at Erb Park Entries due May 30th
June 28-30 Western Great Lakes Open Entries closed
July 5-7 Birdbath at Erb Park Entries closed, but contact us coaches if you are interested, we might ask nicely and be able to get you in.
July 13th Merrill if we have enough interest. It is an outdoor short course meet in Merrill. This team supports us at our meets often. However, if we don’t have enough interest in this meet, we will not go to it. A good meet for our younger swimmers.
And our championship season starts with
July 19-21 Long Course Regionals at Brown Deer, which is the last meet of the “regular season”. Unless qualified for State or Zones, the Summer season ends here.
July 26-28 Long Course 12 & U State Meet at Pleasant Prairie
August 1-4 Long Course 13 & O State Meet at Brown Deer and Zones at Pleasant Prairie
