Congratulations to Katharine L. Lundblad and Sherlyn S. Bakalish
for breaking a total of 3 team records during the 2010-2011 Swim
Season. In the 8-under girls 25 yd Backstroke, Katharine
crushed the 1997 19.54 sec. set to 19.26 sec. Sherlyn
also smashed 2 previous records in the 11-12 girls 200
Breaststroke; one in short course-yards from 2:44.85 to 2:44.42 and
the long course-meters from 3:18.40 to 3:11.63 squashing it by
almost 7 seconds.
Katharine and Sherlyn’s hard work and consistency at practice certainly paid off. However, we must recognize that it is the support of the team that gives every single member the extra push towards greatness. Therefore, a record broken is a win not only for the individuals who broke it but also a win for the entire 2010-2011 LAMVAC team. In this respect, it is with great pride and honor for Coach Ed and me to extend our congratulations to all.
