The Lady Crusaders traveled to Grosse Pointe North this evening to battle the Norseman. The team suffered its first defeat of the season, but I am extremely proud of the team both in and out of the water. I had a parent from the GPN swim team approach me this evening to tell me how nice of a team we had and how well they displayed sportsmanship.
I was also impressed at how well our team preformed this evening considering all the illnesses and injuries. The following swimmers attained their best times in the following events: 200 Free - Rachel Yung & Avery Brown, 50 Free - Lauren Paris, Peyton Cooper, Sydney Johns & Jenna Loyal, 100 Fly - Maddie McMullen, 100 Free - Emilia Ridderikhoff & Kaelan Fischer, 500 Free - Megan Schwartz & Jenna Bliss, 100 Breast - Karalyn Maslowski, Rachel Yung, Peyton Cooper & Jessica Raleigh.
Although the team did not qualify any more swimmers for the County Meet, a number of swimmers came closer to their County cut. Tuesday will be the last day for swimmers to qualify for the meet. Let's make sure we really cheer them on and give them all the encouragement they need to make the cut. Swimmers, please stay focused on your technique and not on the time you need to qualify,
