Weekly Update 6-04-19


Hey TNAQ!  Congratulations to Ben Ramirez.  Ben is a member of our Senior 2 group and a student at Bearden HS.  This past weekend he competed in the Jimi Flowers Classic meet, a USA Paralympic hosted meet on Colorado Springs at the Olympic Training Center.  Ben qualified for the USA National Paralympic Swim Team in the 50m Free as he earned 1st place in his class.  He also finished 1st in the 100 Free. Congratulations to Ben!!


Twenty-four of Ben’s teammates were on hand to watch, cheer, and volunteer time for the meet as they are in the midst of their training trip at the OTC.   It was certainly an incredible experience to watch the parathletes compete. These kids have also hiked, played basketball, eaten great food, worked out out the weight room and the pool, and learned how to deal with less oxygen.  The group returns home on Thursday night.


The deadline to enter the Home meet has passed, coaches are finalizing the entry this week.  Please see the event page for updates.
