Belated New Team Record Announcement and more
In the confusion and upheaval during the first week of March, the fact that a new team record was set on Saturday, February 29 at the Metro Silvers Championships was completely overlooked!! A big congratulations to Daisy Pitches, whose time of 2:29.86 in the200 backstroke broke Cecilia DeHavenon's 11-12 girls 200 back team record of 2:31.98 set in March of 2012.
She joins Summer Jones and Jasiu Gredysa in breaking team records during the 2019-2020 season. As previously announced, Summer Jones set new records in the girls 13-14 100 fly (59.56) and the 200 fly (2:17.68) and Jasiu Gredysa set new records in the boys 9-10 100 IM (1:14.72) and the 200 IM (2:43.43). Five new records in a season that was cut short!!
It was a great first week of practices for the team! Let's keep up the effort and focus into week 2! There will eventually be competitions again and the mantra that "hard work pays off" is one thing that the pandemic has not changed!
Keep up the hard work,
