Piranhas had an amazing weekend of swimming in Chaska at the West Express Autumn Invite! We can’t believe how much improvement we’ve seen in such a short amount of time since beginning our season in early-September. It is so much fun coaching and watching these young athletes improve.
I am especially proud of the great sportsmanship that our athletes show on a daily basis towards one another and other teams. With that said, I received an email from the WEST Express Coach, Heidi, after the meet about one of our athletes going above and beyond. One of the WEST parents witnessed our own AG2 swimmer, Maggie Huisken, display incredible sportsmanship as she loaned her goggles to another swimmer who had broken their pair and was unnerved behind the blocks. Thanks for being a great representative of our team, Maggie!
In the water we had a great meet! We saw a ton of new best times, Silver (aka MRC) times, and a brand new CH time. We saw athletes competing in their first meets and new events and several top finishes. Overall it was a great meet!
Way to go to the following athletes!
Hayden Farnham - First Meet!
Oliver Snaza - First CH time!
Let’s keep up the great swimming!
