- Tommy Ennis, Johanna Goldblatt Junhan Lee, Justin Moore, Maalik Nixon and Nick Palmer earned 100 Best Times!
Coach David says, "Stupendous weekend Seniors! We had so many good swims! Our training is paying off big time and this weekend showed that we have what it takes to continue to improve. Continue the good work, focus on where you can improve and we'll continue to be better athletes!"
Coach Jamey said, "What a great meet at Senior State! We had close to 100% best times and I saw great effort! Our kids stepped up in their training with their new weight program and dryland work after pool workouts and it shows!"
The Seniors have shifted their training a bit this season, including a new weight training program in the mornings as well as different dryland work after pool practices. Jamey and David are writing workouts that are focused on some shorter distance, high intensity work and it's great to see the results at these championship meets! It has been a fun start to the season and we will look forward to their next big meet in March and into our long course season this summer.
Keep up the good work!
