Strong Showing at MVN Blue Meet

FAST swimmers turned in 141 lifetime bests at the MVN Blue Meet last weekend and nine swimmers achieved new JO qualifying times! All of our swimmers put in a great effort after outstanding work during holiday training. Many were challenged by the freezing cold temperatures, but persevered and raced hard.

FAST had one event winner -- Angie Mai won the Girls 7-8 50 Freestyle with a time of 34.73. One FAST team record was broken -- Elizabeth Harita set a new standard for the Girls 8 & Under 25 Butterfly with her time of 21.03 (Previous Record: Kailee Chow, 21.59 -- October 2012). Best times and new JO times are noted below. Click here for complete meet results.
