Early December FAST flew out to Nashville Tennessee to compete in the Nashville Music City Invite. This meet kicked off the first of three mid-season meets FAST competed in. FAST athletes earned many second swims at Nashville, swimmers who got another opportunity to race made the necessary changes to improve their times and earn points for FAST. Kids in Challenge had amazing 400IMs, the smallest time drop being 10 seconds, way to prove FAST as an IM team!!
A few of the performance highlights: Jack Ballard won the 500Free with the time of 5:33.60, Kenadie Glasgow earned 1st in the200 Breast with a time of 2:27.79, Ethan Otto had significant time drops in the 100Breast (-6sec) and the 1650 (-32sec). Our youngest athletes who travelled to this meet – Ella Gaca-Thiele, Lincoln Hoffman, Gracie Thornton and Micah Moore all dropped time in nearly every event they swam over the course of the weekend, way to stay tough, guys!
We also had swimmers qualify for new Sectional and Zone events. Overall it was another successful trip to Nashville.
