Thank you LAC Families for a great meet at Zone 2 Champs. Thank you to the LAC BOD for all of your help organizing the Marshalling and for all of the parents who volunteered to Marshall.
We had an extremely successful team meet. We WON the second division. Teams were placed into two divisions depending on team size, and out of all the Meduim and Small sized teams (1/2 of teams in the meet) we scored the most points. Our team had some outstanding performances on relays including victories in the 11-12 girls 200 MR and 200 FR. Our 11-12 boys placed 2nd in both relays. We also had several relays where the A and B teams both scored in the top 8. Special thank you to swimmers who came especially to swim relays when they had no individual events. This was a great show of team spirit!
We also had more swimmers make All-Stars than ever. Z2 All-Star swimmers include: Aven, Abby, Maggie, Alex S., Jacques, and Kayla C.
Maddie G. and Minh-nha also scored enough points to qualify but are not elligible because they have been to Western Zone All Stars in the past.
It was extremely exciting to watch the last LAC race, the 11-12 boys 200 Free relay. Seated 5th, our boys went head to head with the team from East Bay Aquatics (a team of over 400 swimmers) and it came down to the finish. The best part was hearing the crowd of LAC swimmers who had just finished their own relays screaming for their teammates. It reminded me so strongly that this is a team sport, and how exciting it is when we root for each other. Thank you all LAC parents and swimmers for making this team great. Your efforts over the weekend were awesome. More specific highlights will follow in our upcoming February newsletter on the 10th.
