On September 4th, USA Swimming officially announced its National Team and LAC athlete Brandon Fischer has made it for the 100 breast. Congratulations Brandon! The US National team is for athletes who finish the Long Course season in the top 6 in the Country regardless of age. Brandon now has USA swimming benefits such as travel expense coverage for meets, USA Swimming team gear, and the opportunity to visit and train and the US Olympic Training Center.
In her last event of Junior Nationals this summer, Abby Herscu also qualified for top 8 and made her first Olympic Trials time standard. Abby finished the season ranked 4th in the USA for all 15 year olds in the 200 breast.
As we gather steam this season, hopefully each athlete has a big goal to chase after that will inspire them to bring their best to practice each and every day!
