GCSTO Swimmers Make Impressive Show At Summer Sectionals in Cleveland
Summer sectionals was a very big meet this year with one-third of the competitors being college athletes. On average, only about 25% of all swimmers made it back to finals...so, with 33% being college swimmers, getting a second swim was a big accomplishment for a high school swimmer! Of the 26 individual prelims swims, GCSTO had 10 swims at finals... a GREAT showing!
But the team also did a GREAT job at breaking NINE more team records at the meet! Here are the team records that were broken:
M 15/16 & Open
- 50 Back: 27.56, Eli Stoll
M 15/16 - 400 Free Relay: 3:45.09, Cade Helms, Hayden Yeager, Eli Stoll & Nate Gaver
M 15/16 & Open - 50 Fly: 26.41, Nate Gaver
M 15/16 - 100 Back: 59.74, Eli Stoll
M 15/16 & Open - 50 Breast: 30.87, Nate Gaver
M 15/16 - 400 Medley Relay: 4:09.93, Eli Stoll, Nate Gaver, Hayden Yeager & Cade Helms
Eli's 100 Back was a Futures cut and is only 0.85 seconds off the 2019 Winter Junior National cut.
Congrats to all of our GCSTO Sectional swimmers and THANKS for representing the team so well!
