SWMKE had a great first meet to kick off the Short Course Season at the Waukesha Express Single Age meet on Saturday. As a team, we dropped a combined 264.73 seconds, had a total of 40 best times, and had 5 swimmers win their events.
Special recognition belong to the following swimmers:
Hadley Thacker, who competed in her first swim meet this weekend.
Molly Roszak, Fiona Kelley, Liem Funk, Yuliana Correa, and Lilly Anderson, who earned best times in every race this weekend.
Chloe Yerkes, Liem Funk, Lydia Ziemann, Emily Patzfahl, and Murphy Roszack, who each won an event this weekend.
Liem Funk and Chloe Yerkes, who both set new team records this weekend.
We are especially excited for the potential that SWMKE has this season, both individually and as a team. Because of this, we have decided to bring back an old tradition, and will be giving out “Best Time” buttons to all 12 and under swimmers who swim a best time at a meet, and to all 13 and over swimmers who swim a best time at a team fast suit meet.
Congratulations swimmers! We look forward to another great performance this upcoming weekend!
