2015 13&O State Meet Recap

Congratulations to the KAW 13 & O State Team which placed 3rd out of 61 teams!  With 28 swimmers participating, KAW had many best times, along with new Sectional and Junior National cuts!

 

How important is our State Meet?  Here are a few statistics from the 13 & O State Meet:

·        Anyone who swam at the meet is in the top 5% of Michigan Swimmers

·        806 swimmers participated in the meet

·        287 women swam Sectional cut times

·        226 men swam Sectional cut times

·        Two USA Swimming Speedo Junior National cuts for the men

1.    KAW Swimmer - Camden Murphy achieved in 100 Back

2.    KAW Swimmer – Camden Murphy achieved in 200 Fly

·        Two USA Swimming Speedo Junior National cuts for the women

·        Three Holland Community Aquatic Center pool records broken

1.    KAW Swimmer – Camden Murphy achieved in 100 Fly (New State Record)

2.    KAW Swimmer – Camden Murphy achieved in 200 Fly

 

Head Coach Brad Brockway guided the 13 & O State participants to this outstanding performance and says, “I was very proud of the team effort this weekend.  With representation in only 3 out of 4 age groups and finishing 3rd is a great accomplishment from the swimmers who participated.  I was equally impressed with the support from the parents in the stands.  Seeing everyone sitting together and cheering for all our swimmers was great.  If there were a parent team-spirit award given, our KAW parents would have surely won!”

 

We are fierce competitors within the pool, supportive teammates outside of the pool, and one voice in the stands

= ONE KAW SWIM FAMILY!

 

KAW would like to recognize the following swimmers for their top 16 individual event finishes and High Point awards. Fantastic Job! (Relay recap follows individual recognition)

 

NOTE:  The State Meet only recognizes the Speedo Junior National cut times (highest level of Jr National Meets);  however the swimmers who also achieved Winter Junior National cuts are also noted below.
