MAKO's Holiday Classic Meet Report

MAKO's Holiday Classic Invitational Report

SPY Had 48 swimmers participating in the MAKO Holiday Classic Invitational at Miami University during the weekend of December 13-15.

Our kids achieved 149 lifetime best.  

Quick SPYNATION Highlights which reflects our team's Get After It Attitudes in the Pool:

heartWatching Gracie Glaser talk to coaches about coming up with a race plan to swim the 400yd IM; then "Bringing It On" to beat her target goal and achieved a Senior SWOYSL "AA" time by breaking the 5 minute mark with a 4:57.03

heart Matthew Mayhan discussing his race plan for splits for the 1000yd Free to achieve the 15-18 SWOYSL "AA" time(11:17.79). Oh, he went to work evident by his time 11:15.92. FYI... "AA" for the 1000yd Free, also qualifies the swimmer to compete at SWOYSL "AA" Championship in both 1650yd Free too. Matthew basically got a TWO events for ONE event at SWOYSL "AA" Championship.

heartNice to get encouraging message from SPY Alumni Justin Crew and Andy Swonger regarding their previously held TEAM RECORDS being broken by Evan Blazer and Jarrett Payne.
