Exeter / Executive / Concord YMCA – Tri Meet


I would like to start by thanking all of the parent volunteers who helped out at the meet.  This was a large league meet and we would not have been able to run it without all of the work put in by our members. 

To refresh everyone’s memory, Executive is the team that battled us at NHSA States last year which we won by only ½ a point.  That trend continued this weekend as Executive edged Exeter by 3 points (878-875) in a meet that came down to the last relay.  Concord YMCA was third with 229 points.

We saw the newer swimmers watching some exciting races and soaking up the meet experience that will make them more comfortable and focused for our next big meet… the Exeter Sprints!   This meet is a long-standing tradition in New England and teams from all over come to our home pool to swim FAST.  It is because we run such a great meet (thanks Shannon) that they come back year after year.  Your efforts as volunteers are a great reason for that.

The vast majority of swimmers remembered their times and came over to get their gummies.  We had 44 swimmers make the 100% Gummi Club!  These swimmers swam their best times ever in all the events they swam.   We also had many of the younger and newer swimmers looking at the Goal Board, which is new and improved, after their races.

Highlights of the meet included:

Qualfiying for New England Age groups were

Alex Bouvier and Ethan Thompson in the 12 year old 50 Fly
