Summer Nationals 2017 Like We’re Totally Awesome (80’s theme)
The small but mighty summer national team has had 2 days of fun in Greensboro, NC. We are missing our other national teammates who were unable to make the trip. As a team, we enjoyed a team dinner at Kickback Jack’s where the boys were able to play some bags after eating. We had a team lunch at Olive Garden with lots of pasta, raspberry lemonades or tea, and lots of laughs.
The Men’s 200 Free Relay went off without a hitch. Nathan swam the 1st leg of the race and achieved his LC 50 Free time with a split of 25.48. Daryl had the 2nd leg and swam the fastest split of the race with a 24.90. Collin made his debut at nationals with the 3rd leg of the relay. Alex brought it all home. The boys made a best time by dropping 0.36 seconds. Nice swims for all 4 boys.
Sarah started us out with her 100 fly. As always, she looked graceful in the water, but challenged the swimmers around her. She swam a good race, just a little off of her seed time.
Nathan was up next with his 100 fly. His goal was to break the 1:00 mark and he did it! He flew right off the blocks with what we have now named his “fly dive” to achieve a new personal best time of 59.79.
Time trials were held right after the meet events. Nathan swam the 100 free and made a personal best time and Collin swam a personal best time in the 200 IM.
