Last weekend's Senior classic ---San Diego's senior championship meet...was a blast!!!! Going into the meet, my hope was that our preparation had put us into position to swim well individually, and to potentially finish in the top 3 in the team race. As well, Brandon Meier, and Jessi Heim had shots at winning the high point awards....
Well we did it!!!!! Jessica Heim won the high point award in the girls, Brandon Meier won the high point in the mens competition, and we not only finished in the top 3, we won the combined team championship!!! We pulled off the triple crown. Great job swimmers!!! Here are the highlights:....
Friday night: went very well. On the girls side, it started out with Jessi Heim winning the 1000 free and best times from Catherine Aitken(10th), Nicole Tex (15th) (best time in 2 years), Jordan Hart, and Sophie Martinez. Brandon Meier(3rd) dropped 34 seconds and broke a team record with a 9:31, Mario Sutka and Tommy Anderson finished 8th and 11th, while Cole Christy and Luca Casimiro achieved new sectional cuts in the event....It was a good night.
