The Nova Seniors traveled to Texas A&M last weekend for the Texas Sectional Championships where 1 summer Junior National cut, 2 winter Junior National cut, 1 SCS Relay record and 2 Nova team records were broken.
Stephen Marcin swam a swift 4:29.00 in the 500 free to make his first Summer Junior National cut while Joe Lastelic made his first Winter Junior National cut in the mile with a 15:44.76. Andrea Felix stepped up on the last night and swam a quick 56.44 leading off the 400 Medley relay to achieve her first Winter Junior National cut. Carly Perri swam a sizzling 1:59.72 200 fly to break Tara Thomas's 8 year old 15-16 Nova team record. The relay team of Perri, Meagan Popp, Brittany Kampfer and Courtney Mykkanen broke their own SCS/ Nova 800 free relay record that they had set in Dec. at the Winter Junior Nationals with a 7:24.50.
Congratulations to all!
