SPIRIT PUMP – Up and Running

OSHY swimmer Dominic Searvogel’s family (Shawn and Breanna) own the new BP station on 9th Street next to A&W. They approached us this year about turning one of their pumps into an OSHY Spirit Pump with 3 cents of every gallon sold from that pump being donated to the OSHY Swim Team. The pump is up and running. It is pump #2, as you enter the station it is on the inside right, closest to the building. The pump has YMCA and OSHY logos on it. This is a super easy way to support the OSHY team and between 3 cents a gallon going to the team, 57 cent coffee refills, a great location, and some very nice employees (the woman on the morning shift is fantastic) there is no reason to go anywhere else. THANK YOU DOMINIC, BREANNA, and SHAWN.



12+Under State – Mason B, Matthew B, Ethan P, Kiersten D, and Samara Z represented the OSHY team this weekend at the 12+Under State Meet and they were awesome. Matthew, Ethan, Samara, and Kiersten all scored, placing top 20. Matthew and Kiersten each made the podium, placing top 10. Kiersten was State Champion in all 6 of her events (50 free, 100 free, 200 free, 400 free, 100 fly, and 200 IM) and she was the State High Point Champion. To give context to her swims, she was at least 1 second per 50 faster than everyone else in the state in everything and her 100 and 200 free times would have qualified her for Zones as an 11-12 year old (she is 10).


Central Zones (the next step up from State for the 14+U swimmers) – Elise (pulling double duty with State and Zones on the same weekend) and Kiersten will represent OSHY and Team Wisconsin next week at Central Zones in Pleasant Prairie.


13+Over StateCaitie S, Claire V, Molli P, Elise P, and Owen K will represent OSHY at the 13+Over State Meet next week in Brown Deer.


YMCA NationalsMelana Z, Claire S, Lillie A, Ali P, Jackson S, Brennan H, Owen K (double duty with 13+Over State), and Andrew G will represent OSHY in College Park, MD at YMCA Long Course Nationals this week.


After all the meets are over, we have big groups going to both Natalie Camp (Aug 5-10) and Middle School Camp (Aug 12-17) in Ely, MN.
