This year’s meet was held at the end of July at the McCoy Natatorium on the campus of The Pennsylvania State University.  Despite only having a few swimmers at the meet, the results were fantastic.   We had several swimmers making finals, a ton of personal best times, and 6 team records broken! 

Even more important than any records set was the sportsmanship displayed by all the swimmers, in particular Lauren Morrison.  Despite only competing in a couple of events due to a previous injury, Lauren maintained a positive attitude and helped keep her teammates focused on performing their best.  Lauren remained at the pool throughout the preliminary sessions and even attended the finals each night to support her friends and teammates.  What an outstanding example of everything the YMCA and SJAC wants to see their swimmers become.  Way to go Lauren!!
