Hey everyone, seems like the training is just rolling along, all reports from the coaching staff at every level suggest that everyone is working very hard and at the same time paying close attention to all of the fine details. KEEP IT UP!! But also remember, the great work you're doing now does not guarantee the performance, it only guarantees that you will be ready to perform...you still need to do it on the day, under the conditions. As Point #26 in the "What Do You Do At A Swim Meet?" article in the "What's New" section of the website (check it out!) states: "Nothing great was ever achieved by meekness...you have to be daring and have courage to approach races with enough bravado (confidence) to be successful." Basically meaning, it never simply "happens" - you have to make it happen! So, when your opportunity comes along, after all this great work you're doing, GO MAKE IT HAPPEN!
CONGRATULATIONS to Maggie MacNeil, Andrew O'Brien and Camille Ryan for their selection to and participation in the Mustang Training Centre Regional camp last Saturday at Western University.
CONGRATULATIONS to LAC'er Jake Armstrong who recently was one of 15 graduating Western student/athletes honored with a "Purple Blanket" for his outstanding athletic accomplishments. Also, Jennifer Trung, a member of the Mustangs OUA champion women's swim team, was named winner of the F.W.P. Jones Trophy for making "the greatest contribution to intercollegiate athletics" while at Western. In 4 years Trung won 15 OUA medals, 9 of them gold, as well as setting 2 school and 2 OUA records.
