Summer Nationals


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.    

Day 1

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.

Day 2

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.
