Congratulations to Ava for competing in her first ever swim meet! She competed in 3 events. She competed in the 50 back, breast , free and did well in all of her events! I can’t wait to watch
Ava compete at more meets in the future!
Congratulations also, to Justin for competing at his first official meet. It was a pleasure to watch
Justin race in his events, especially because he’s been working so hard to get all of his strokes
legal. Justin swam a 50 of each stroke and did well in all of them!
Good work Justin!
Coming off of a long softball season, with some time out of the pool, Alyssa competed at her first swim meet back after a few months and killed it! Although she has been out of the pool she
still managed to get some personal best times at the RW. Welcome
back lil’ Tieman!
2019 Summer RW Finale Recap (Beach 1)
Our newest competitive group rolled into the RW Finale 7 deep (we missed you, Avalon!). It was exciting to see so many of the athletes paying attention to the details of their races. Many even swam races, including the 100 IM, for the first time. Some had not raced in many months, so the progress they have made during that time was evident, with Sola and Helena improving in every single race! Keep up the excellent work, Beach 1!

What a great first meet for Youki. She was nervous for weeks leading up to this meet, up when she got there she crushed it! She did everything she needed to do from checking in and out with
coach, and warming up and warming down. A race that stood out to me the most, was Youki’s
50y freestyle. She raced exactly how we planned it and even won her
heat! Greta job Youki!
Although Alex only had 3 events, he showed up and crushed them all! An event that stood out to me the most was his 100y freestyle. He swam that race exactly how we have been working
on in practice. No breaths into and out of the walls, breathing every 3, and sub kickbacks off of
every wall!! Keep up the good work Alex!
I really enjoy watching Abby train and race. Whether it’s at practice or meets, Abby always has the competitive spirit which drives her into giving her all in everything she does. Abby’s events
were back to back to back to back this weekend, but she showed resilience and went after it
every race, no matter how fatigued she felt. Great job Abby, keep
Isaac performed really well at this meet. Isaac swam races he has never done before, and did
well in all of them! Now that he has experience in hothouse events, he can come to practice
expecting what to work on towards those events. Keep up the good work Isaac, can’t wait to
watch you race next meet.
Coming off of a great performance at champs, Amelia was ready to use her champs experience to go out and race every event. And she did just that. Amelia nearly dropped time in all her
events. She continues to show the competitive spirit she holds at
every meet. Keep at it Amelia!
Wren has been working hard towards fixing her technique in all her strokes. The RW meet showed some of that work paying off. She raced all of her events and did well in all of them.
Now, we just need to take what we learned at the swim meet and continue to work hard on the
details that can help us get better and faster. Keep it up
Evan Brutscher had a great meet, going best times in 3 of his 4 events. He dropped over 6 seconds in his 100 free and almost a full second in his 50 free. He dropped another 3+ in his 50 breast. Great job Evan!
Miki D. was the lone representative of the Beach 4 group at the RW Finale, but she certainly represented her group well, going 4 for 4 to improve in every race!

Brianna Davis: First time racing the 500 free with a very impressive finish first place as well as dropped an entire second in her 50 free to place 1st once again. Dropped yet another second in her 100 back to place once again first place in her event. A strong 6 second drop in her 200 IM, with a brilliant performance on her turns showing how important walls are in a race.
Megan Charan: drops 4 seconds in her 100 free and swims the 100 fly at a meet for the first time, gaining valuable experience and a noticeable positive outlook on the tough event
Sebastiano Bysted: An incredibly strong performance for Seb this meet, impressively dropping 9 seconds in the 200 free. 2 seconds in the 100 back, 1 second in the 100 breast and giving a go to a relay performance in the 200 free relay.
Joshua Truong: Rushing over from Comic Con in order to race, Josh dropped a second in the 50 backstroke, and 3 seconds in the 100 backstroke (his least favorite stroke and something he has been working on heavily in practice) Nearly 2 seconds in the 100 breast and a killer performance starting off the boys 200 free relay.
Katherine Sootkoos swam in just her second meet for Beach Cities. She had best times in all 4 of her events, two of which she swam for the first time. She dropped 5 seconds in both her 100 fly and 200 IM. Great swimming Katherine.
