The Clippers nearly doubled their teams score during their 3rd day of competition. With over 900 swimmers in the meet and temperatures reaching 90+ the facility at Purdue is struggling keeping fresh air in the facility.(Not sure if any indoor facility could). The sessions have been extremely long making it hard to keep the webpage updated with the great stats from the day. We have had plenty to mention but I am afraid at 10:30pm on the second to last day of the meet I will forget one. We will try to update the site later with some of the top individual performances.
Relays have been exciting on the last two nights with the Clippers throwing up times the slower heats to win the girls 400 Free Relay( Molly Hinken, Ellen Williamson, Mary Bank and Krissie Brandenburg) and the boys 800 Free Relay( Jeff Morris, Nick Kunkel, Rob Walsh and Shane Coltharp) finishing an impressive 2nd place from the 3rd fastest heat. All Clipper relays A thru C have been a ton of fun and exciting to watch.
Go Clippers on the final day of Competion. Next on the agenda for Clippers during the Championship season will be Zones for the 14&unders and Senior Nationals/Junior Nationals for the national group.
