The Northern Kentucky Clippers competed this past weekend in the 2012 Ohio LCM Senior Championships. As a team we swam extremely well making it one of the most successful overall championship meets for the entire senior program. The meet turned into a dual meet immediately after day 1 with the Clippers and the Mason Manta Rays. The Clippers fell just a few swims/Swimmers short from a victory with Mason taking the victory on the last day outnumbering our total swims by 60+. Despite the 2nd place finish it was a great meet and we saw the swimmers stepping up to represent the Blue and Gold with some very impressive swims. We left some points behind with a few swimmers tapering for US Open and Junior Nationals. As a Team we swam over 60% lifetime best events (very Strong for Senior Swimming) including two new team records.
Ann Davies – 100 Breaststroke – 1:14.69 (formerly held by Olivia Kuykendahl)
Chase Vennefron – 100 Breaststroke – 1:08.27 (formerly held by Max Williamson)
Boys 200 Medley Relay
1:52.53 of Chase Vennefron, Mike Summe, Robbie
Newman and Conner Downard bettered the existing team record of 1:52.99
Congratulations to All Swimmers for a great season and good luck to those who still have Junior Nationals and US Opens
