54 Neptunes braved the weather and traveled to 3 different meets this past weekend setting many personal best times on the way. With two of the meets long course Cabrillo & Terrapins, swimmers, coaches & parents could gauge the improvement over the past short course season when you compare last years long course times with the times achieved this past weekend. The improvement from our 12-under swimmers is quite impressive and sheds a little light on the strength of the Neptune program for the future, exciting!!! Great job to all of the Neptunes who traveled up to Eureka for the Redwood CBA meet. Coach Laraine is impressed with the dedication and professionalism shown by the swimmers who represented the Neptunes at the meet. Laraine had a wonderful time getting to know the families away from the pool.
A few highlights:
Hank Poppe 8-under: set two new team records in the 50 Fly 38.97 (old record from 1985)& the 100 Free 1:22.11 (old record from 1979). Great job Hank!
Mikaela Luders 9-10: quailified for her 1st Far Western's with awesome swims in the 100 Back & the 100 Free. Congratulations.
