This weekend there are two championship meets going on for CAST swimmers. Meet #1 is the winter age group classic in Coronado. This meet runs Saturday through Monday, and includes many of the best "Age group" swimmers in San Diego. We have 31 swimmers attending this meet. ( I do not have results of today's swims at this time).
The Second championship meet is the California-Nevada Sectionals. We have 9 swimmers attending this meet. The meet started Friday night and runs through Tuesday night. Last night we had 2 swims. Sarah nowaski in the 1000 fr and Ambert Sawaya in the 1650. Sarah dropped 6 seconds in her 1000 breaking her own 13-14 record with a 10:17, and Ambert dropped over 10 seconds in his 1650 with a 16:35.
Today we had 10 swims and 9 of them were best times. 200 fly drops: Sarah -1.8 seconds in prelims and another 1.4 in finals breaking another team record that goes back to 2006; German -1, and Ambert -3.7. 200 Back drops: tommy Anderson 1.3 in prelims breaking a 2009 team record, and dropping another second in finals. 100 free drops: Cole Christy -.1, Victor Robles -1.2. And Nicole Tex dropping 1.8 seconds in her 200 breast.
So after the first 2 days we have 11 out of 12 best times. I hope we can keep this going!!!!
Good luck to all of you swimming in Coronado this weekend!
