WAY TO GO LULU SCHLOSS!
SOLO has a tradition of developing swimmers over time, with each individual's swims in mind.
In doing this Coach Tom is very good at forgetting that we have team and pacific records, ha!
Congratulations to Lulu on setting not one, or two, but THREE Team Records at Junior Olympics.
50 breast record of 38.04
Breaking the prior mark of 38.62 set in 1992 by Beth Irwin.
(Beth later went to Cal and was an All American as a polo player, and was inducted into the Menlo-Atherton Hall Of Fame.)
100 breast record of 1:19.35
Breaking the prior mark of 1:25.92 set in 1995 by Gina Merlone.
(Gina later went to Cal in swimming, and was an Olympic Trials Qualifier in 2000.)
200 breast record of 2:53.78
Setting a new AAAA USA Swimming Level Time.
Look out! They might be coming down at Far Westerns! Go SOLO!
