The Stockton Swim Meet held over the weekend was a great success!!! Our swimmers braved the chilly air and came away from the meet with personal best performances across the board!! We had 25 swimmers participate and it was a wonderful end to the year for AAA!
Here are some highlights from the meet:
Congrats to Annie Fromson-Ho for swimming two challenging events for the first time! Annie swam the 500 free and 200 fly and performed wonderfully! Also taking on the tough events was Junior II swimmer Alex Cortez competing in the 500 free! Alex came away from the event with a huge time drop and personal best! Addison Jerrett, just aged up into the 13-14 age group and had 5 new personal best swims. His biggest time drop came in the 200 free where he shaved 8 seconds from his previous best. Koshi Tamang had the biggest time drop overall. She was very reluctant to swim the 200 free, but Coach Jesus gently encouraged her to take on the challenge. She came away with a new best time and 11 second improvement!
