MIDWINTER MEET RECAP
Clippers hosted another successful and fast meet this past weekend. Coming off of Christmas Training and not resting for this meet, Clippers swam 71% LTBs (Life Time Bests). While swimming a very high percentage of LTBs, Clippers also broke 14 meet records (Clippers accounted for all meet records broken).
Clippers won the meet in dominating fashion. Clippers won 52 total events. This is 39 more events than the second place team...Cincinnati Marlins. Clippers scored a total of 9,076 with the 2nd place Marlins scoring 2,685.
The coaches are looking forward to the rest of the season. The way we swam un-rested should lead to some very fast swimming during championships!!!
