AGE GROUP REGIONALS
Thru the 2nd day of the 2011 LCM Age Group Regionals, The Clippers are swimming to another impressive meet and getting the championship season off to a great start. As a team the Clippers have put over 50 different swimmers back at finals in at least one event and many swimmers who have gone life time best times have just missed making it back. Currently the 14 & unders have 299 individuals cuts for the Ohio JO championships!! To give you a perspective on this number we had 223 Individual swims at JO’s this past winter and 279 last summer. Keep cheering on your 14&under Clippers at the Regionals meet. Cheer Loud and be PROUD!! Stealing the Slogan From U.C “Represent the C” - Clippers Swimming Rocks!!
The 15&over Clippers are representing the “C” as well in Gambier, Ohio. With only a few upperclassman swimming in this first championship meet for the 15&overs, the youth of the team is stepping up to assist the graduating seniors (Dave Thomas, Louis Rodgers and Spencer Franzoi). “For some of these swimmers it is their first experience at this level. Learning to deal with open warm-ups and competition that is coming from 4 different college teams the Clippers are swimming very strong with signs of their hard work this season is paying off. The Clippers go into the final day of the meet in great shape coming off a very strong finals on Saturday night. Keep on cheering on your 15&overs as they continue to represent the “C”!!
