We had some good swims this past weekend despite the cold and rainy weather. Monica Gong got two new JO cuts and swam best times in 5 out of her 7 events. She dropped half a second in her 50 free and a whopping 21 seconds in her 200 free to smash the cut. Aris Jernigan also had a fantastic meet as well going best times in 6 out of 7 of her events, and achieving two new B times. Phillip Vakoula swam the 200 free for the first time and dropped 5 seconds in his 50 free. Clotilda Yi got 4 new best times and a new A time in the 200 Back. Other swimmers who achieved best times at this meet were: Cynthia Le, Lydia Deng, Megan Huston, Tudor Muresan, Myles Williams, Anthon Chew, and Sarah Willams-Hansen
Overall, EBAT had a great meet, but low attendance. Meets like this, designated C/B/A+ are great opportunities for our newer swimmers on the team race in their first meet. Our next C/B/A+ meet will be in Walnut Creek on February 18th and 19th.
