Aquaknights and Otter Invitational Results
June 7, 2016
Highlights from the Aquaknights meet:
We had a great meet as a team, and a lot of improved times!
- We had 92 swimmers attend the meet, and we competed in 275 individual events. Of those swims, 125 were best times- that is a 45% improvement as a team and is AWESOME!!!
- Also out of the 275 swims only 18 were DQ's which is 6% also an AWESOME stat!
- We also had 2 team records broken at the meet- Andrew Maichel broke a 13 yr. old record in the 13-14 boys IM with a time of 1:03.96, he shattered the previous record of 1:04.44 by Daniel Maroon (Joe and I coached him for 5 years with the Pinole Seals before the family moved to Benicia). Aden Li (35.83) narrowly broke Pierce Tenret (35.87) 9-10 boys Butterfly record.
We wanted to explain to all the new and returning member's how swim meets are scored. For individual events 1st=5, 2nd=3, &3rd= 1 (any heat can score); relays 1st= 6, & 2nd = 3 (only "A" relays score). In a perfect meet if a team wins all 3 individual events places in every age/gender, and 1st in all relays they would score 666 pts. With that being stated a 50 point loss is considered a close meet.
Highlights from the 8 & under Otter invitational:
Our 8 & under girls placed 5th, and our boys placed 2nd, and as a team we placed 3rd overall, GO STINGRAYS!!!
- Madison Smith-Rambo placed 6th overall with 55pts, and Shiya Crawford placed 9th overall with 50pts.
- Ryan Klubben placed 1st overall with 80pts., William Klubben placed 2nd overall with 74pts., Vincent Perelli placed 3rd overall with 70pts.
