Congratulations to PHX swimmers for finishing 2nd at 14 and Under Champs!
Despite a blazing hot weekend and other difficult conditions PHX managed to come in 2nd place at this summers 14 and Under Champs! The kids were great over the course of a weekend (week?) which saw most days reach well over 90 degress, a thunderstorm, and often times chilly conditions on the morning - not to mention a never before seen meet set up spanning multiple week days.
Ultimately, the kids swam amazing. We had close to 96% best times, multiple relay victories, and a few narrowly missed record swims. On top of that the kids were excited and supportive of their teammates all weekend with home made sign, lots of high fives, and a ton of cheering!
As always this was a great TEAM achievement that should be enjoyed by all - and while every PHX swimmer was in the zone and doing their best I did want to recognize the following high point winners who went above and beyond at the meet:
9&Under Girls - Malia Amuan 1st Place
9&Under Boys - Miller Swank 5th Place
10 Year old Girls - Mary Kate Turk 1st Place
12 Year old Girls - Grace Walker 2nd Place
12 Year old Girls - Allegra Walker 3rd Place
12 Year old Girls - Callie Breiter - 6th Place
12 Year old Boys - Matt McDonald - 5th Place
13&14 Boys - Sebby Melendez- 1st Place
13&14 Boys - Stevos Baczek - 3rd Place
Congratulations again on all PHX Swimmers on this great achievement!
