Colorado 12 and Under Long Course State took place in Grand Junction this summer. We kicked off the meet with the 100 Fly where we had three boys qualifying for finals, Nate and Owen came back to swim in the C-Heat, and Danny placed 2nd Friday night.
Over the weekend Danny placed first the 200IM (2:27.75) and 100 Breast (1:19.23). Tatum also raced well, making it back it back to the A-final heat the 200IM, 200Free, and placed second in the 400 Free and 400 IM. A few honorable mentions come from Victorio and Micah who qualified for the B and C finals heats in many events getting their name up on the board and putting up points for FAST
Making it back to finals for the first time was Lincoln who swam the 100 back in the C-Heat and dropping just over 7 seconds over the day. Lincoln along with Akshat both made it back in the 50 Back the next night in the B and C finals heat. Respectively. Liam and Jaxson competed in 10 and Under timed finals both scoring Top 10; Liam 7th in the 100Back and 8th in the 50 fly, and Jaxson 2nd in the 100 breast.
During Sunday Finals warmup FAST teamed up with HRA for a little friendly game of Rock, Paper, Scissors to keep the good vibes going in to the last session because after all, happy swimmers are fast swimmers!! Thank you to everyone who made the trip out to Grand Junction this season for a great Age Group State Championship!
