ASC had several finalists and high point scoring swimmers at the Summer WGLO at Brown Deer last weekend. Even with converted times, ASC improved 46 of 65 events for 71% best times. Several had qualified in yard times for this meet and had not yet swam in meters. 2 DQ’s, both on missed turns. Even a power outage did not stop our swimmers from having a stellar performance.
13 new team records were set. Kate Schmoll set a new team record almost every time she dove in. A near miss in the 50 Fly, she broke the 100 Fly, 50 and 100 BR, 200 and 400 IM 11-12 team records, with the 400 IM a new senior team record. Hallory Domnick also set a 15-18 girls team record in the 200 FR and 400 IM, and Jocelyn McNicoll set the 100 BR team record for 15-18 and senior girls. Tommy McNicoll also set 2 team records for 10 & U Boys in the 50 BK and 100 FR. Matt Schmoll also set a new team record in the boys 13-14 100 Fly.
New state qualifying times were Maia Smet in the 100 and 400 FR, Erin Schuch in the 200 FR, Katelyn Seder in the 50 Fly and 50 BR, Kara Schmoll in the 100 BR and 100 Fly, Matt Schmoll in the 100 Fly and 400 FR.
Our training has been hard most of the summer with two workouts a day in most days. We sort of let some up for air by backing off at the end of last week, and of course Maia, Kate and a few others popped out some very nice times. Matt earned a few new cuts and also made some finals. We did have some girls at the UW Madison swim camp, and they saw some of their conselors swim some races. When training at a different place, swimmers sometimes must get used to not being known, and the training might be a bit different. Although these can be great experiences with the new friends you can meet, it is not always the case. From what I understand, most of what was said were the same things we work on at ASC.
It is instructive that those who have done two a days have made some great strides in their improvements. Perhaps we will see more of this at Birdbath next weekend.
We will naturally back off a bit for Birdbath next weekend as we will not train on July 4th and the meet start on Friday the 5th. After that, we will work a bit harder as we make our final push to championship season at Regionals, State or Zones.
If you are looking to sign up for another swim meet, the only choice is Regionals in Federal Way July 20th weekend. This is also the last chance to qualify for the state championships the next two weekends.
