Big Time Drops at RW Champs SCAL Meet!

 

AZOT swimmers shined at the SoCal Spring

RW Championship Short Course Meet on February 22 & 23 at Tustin High School. 

 

The meet was cut short by a day because of high winds, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of our AZOT swimmers as they brought back 5 first place, 5 second place and 6 third place finishes on Friday and Saturday!

From Coach Jacqueline – AZOT 2 Coach:

 

Despite the extremely windy conditions on Sunday, there were many good swims on Friday and Saturday. In the morning session, Kelly White swam a December Invite Time in her 50 free of 32.84 and dropped 5 seconds in her 100 breast for a time of 1:45.22. Kristina Yan dropped 3 seconds in her 50 free for a red time and 3 seconds in her 100 breast for a time of 1:41.00. Timothy Lee swam an impressive 100 fly receiving a Winter JO time of 1:23.60 by dropping 8 seconds.  Many of the swimmers swam races that they did not previously have times for like Cole White who received a red time for his swims in the 50 back and the 100 free. He has also had a 5 second time drop in his 50 breast. In the older session, Daniel Chun conquered the 200 IM for the first time and dropped 8 seconds in the 100 free for a red time of 1:12.43. Daniel Yoo had never swam the 100 free and received a red time on his first try. Michael Yu dropped 6 seconds from his previous 100 free time for a time of 1:22.76. Sarah Sharifi dropped 3 seconds in her 100 free as well as 1 second in her 50 breast for a time of 42.66. Nicholas Liu dropped an impressive 4 seconds in his 50 breaststroke for a time of 47.32.
