This past weekend LAC swimmers had a fantastic Far Westerns Meet.
Jacqueline Arnold, Paige da Costa, Dante Demayo, Maddie Gomez, Matthewy Hayes, Abigail Herscu, and Jared Tovera, 11-12 girls 400 Free Relay, 400 Medley Relay, 200 Free Relay, and 200 Medley Relay
Event winners included:
Paige da Costa- 100 back (Junior National Qualifying time), 200 back (Junior National Qualifying time), 400 IM
Jared Tovera- 50 free
Our 11-12 girls relays moved up in every event and scored major points for our team. Our team placed 40th out of over 200 teams. High School swimmers were inelligible to score because they are unattached during high school season, so all points were scored by 11-12 relays and non High School Finalists.
Abigail Herscu won a great swim off for the 50 breast
Jack Hendrick dropped over 40 seconds total in the meet
Maddie Gomez made two new LA Invitational Cuts
All 4 girls of the 11-12 200 Medley Relay split best times
Here is a list of girls who made up the various relays:
Maddie Gomez, Minh-nha Kawamura, Abigail Herscu, Maggie
Robinson, Aven Lee, Natalie Urban
Our 11-12 boys relays also did a fantastic job with either 3 or 4 11 year olds each time
Here is a list of the boys who made up the various relays:
Jacques Grove, Tyler Laymon, Jack Hendrick, Jack Davis, Nick Grigoropoulos
More complete highlights will come in our next newsletter
Thanks all parents who helped with pop ups and timing. It was great to see our whole team including parents cheering for Abby during her swim off. It showed a lot of team spirit. We are looking forward to the summer season!
