Age Group 1
Philip Rogatkin is one of our newest and youngest swimmers. He shows up everyday ready to swim! He has made major improvements in every stroke. Philip is always positive and has a ready for anything attitude. I look forward to seeing Philip at more meets! Keep up the good work, Yeah baby!
Age Group 2 / Junior 1
Cassidy Rubino came back after Christmas with a renewed focus and positive attitude. She has been dropping time on all her events and improving her technique. I have especially enjoyed watching Cassidy’s fire and competitive nature develop into a more focused commitment to swimming over the last few months. I look forward to seeing where it takes her in 2008.
Junior 2 / Pre-Senior / Senior
Jason Yu is Coach Mark’s pick for Swimmer of the Month for January, 2008. Jason has been doing an excellent job at practice lately. He just came off of a very successful meet where he made some major improvements. These improvements are the direct result of his consistent hard work in practice. I can see his increased confidence as he leads his lane during sets much of the time. Great job, Jason. Keep up the outstanding efforts and you will continue to see big drops at meets!
