LAC Places 7th at JO's

This past weekend 23 of our swimmers represented LAC at Junior Olympics.  Our team finished 7th overall out of 40 teams, several of which have over 300 members (2 teams have over 1,000).  Here are some highlights from the meet:  

LAC Swimmers made 33 finals appearances 

11 different swimmers competed in finals-  Shahini Ananth, Caroline Eckel, Haley Hamza, Nina Hayes,  Katie Kulp, Celine Nguyen, Nathan Boas, Matthew Hayes, Stephen Mackanic, Trent Trump, and Alex Wang 

Haley Hamza was 15-16 girls high point winner 

Haley Hamza, Nina Hayes, and Trent Trump were all individual event winners 

Matthew Hayes, Chris Gonzalez, Caroline Eckel, Taber daCosta, and Stephen Mackanic all made new Far Western Qualifications 

Caroline, Haley, Celine, Nathan, Matthew, Stephen, Alex G., Alex W., Josh, Jared, Shelby, Paige d., Paige C., Amanda, Collin, Chris, Gabriel, Trent, and Taber all got lifetime best times 

In 27 out of 33 finals apperances, our swimmer swam faster.  This means that after a great morning swim to get them into finals, they raced and did even better at night.  

Thank you all swimmers who gave your very best this weekend.  It was awesome to be a part of a great team experience.  Thank you Kris Kulp for filming every race, Cindy Eckel and Natalie Chew for bringing and setting up the pop ups, and all parents for the support you show your kids.  

We are looking forward to 14&un JO's in December and have some great team goals.  We are excited to see what we can do as a team as we qualify more and more swimmers to these meets!  

Please remember our next morning practice for Pr Sr/ Var/ J2 is on Thursday.
