Coach Bee’s summary for the Age Group Aquazots at JSerra HS Pool site:

At the FAST meet this past weekend, 5 year old Jake Powell was the youngest swimmer and competed in the 25 breast, 50 free and 25 Fly. He had a big crew cheering him on.

Elise Thatcher , 6 years old, attended her first meet and swam the 25 free and 25 back legally!! We have never seen her smile so much! :O)

Her sister, Siena , 8 years old , swam the same events and also clocked in some legal times! She has an awesome dive! Yeahhh!

Helena Lawry, 8 years old, dropped time in all her events including 10 seconds in her 25 Fly!!!! Helena also earned RED times in 2 of her events. Way to go!

Emma Gomez , 7 years old, was at the meet both days and swam 8 events! She is very close to attaining some RED times in a few events. Not bad for another first timer! Woohoo!

Kelly Connell, 10 years old, swam in her first USA swimming sanctioned meet and won 3 out of her 4 heats! She missed getting a BLUE time in 2 of her events by only 2 seconds. Amaaazing!

Lily Verna , 11 years old, was at her first ever meet and swam 7 events! She tackled the 200 free as her first event! Yeahh! Lily has only been swimming since August and made Coach Sarah and Coach Bee sooo proud!

Lauren Bowers , 12 years old, also swam in her first meet and was there both days. She swam 6 events including the 50 fly! She has just been introduced to swimming this year! Well done Lauren girl!

Bailey Cooper, 12 years old, also at her first USA swim meet, is only 1 second away from a RED time! She also swam the 200 free and is getting close to a RED time in that event as well. Yeahhh!

Carson Ketel, 11 years old, just learned how to swim a month ago and swam both days at the meet! He swam the 50 Breast ‘legally‘, the 100 Free and the 50 Back. Outstanding!

Maverick Moore, 11 years old, swam 8 events at his first meet!! He had very strong swims in all his events including recording an 100 IM legal time! Way to go Mav!!!

Gina Gareau, 14 years old, has been swimming about a year and participated in her first meet ever! She swam a very fast time for her 200 Free and did great in the 50 Free as well. Great job Gina!

Preston Ketel, 13 years old, learned how to swim a month ago and tackled the 200 IM as his first event!! Since he is 6 feet tall, his biggest challenge at the meet was diving in the 4 foot pool!

Connor Quill, 14 years old, had an amazing meet! He dropped 13 seconds in his 100 Fly. He is only 2 seconds away from a BLUE time in the 100 Back and dropped 7 seconds and he attained long time goal of SUB One minute in the 100 Free with a time of 59.58!!
