This past weekend EST sent a group of 15 swimmers to the Connecticut Short Course Senior Championships. It was a great opportunity to swim against new competition and to represent EST outside of the New England LSC. The meet was very fast and it took a sectional cut in most events to have a chance to make finals.
Over the course of the meet EST swimmers posted 72 personal bests, set 14 team records, sent 7 swimmers to finals and the men’s team placed 3rd overall!
The following team records were broken:
