SA SWIMMERS EXCEL AT HIGHLANDER LONG COURSE INVITATIONAL

 
 
Our swimmers were outstanding during the Highlander Aquatics Long Course Invitational on April 23, 24, and 25.

Despite not swimming any long course training or meets since last July, most of the 31 swimmers entered swam several personal bests. But the biggest star was clearly Rodrigo Rozo, who exploded for five Junior Olympic cuts. A full rundown of all results will be available both at the pool office and on our website, and all ribbons should be picked up at the guard office by asking a staff member.

TEAM EXCELS AT AREA 2 MEET

 
 

Seminole Aquatics swimmers were superb at the Area Championship meet held at the Lake Brantley Aquatic Center this past weekend.

Of the thirty SA swimmers that attended, virtually all came away with at least one personal best, including new Junior Olympic time standards by Katarina Svetz and Kara Vachon. Full meet results will be available soon on our website. Any swimmers placing in the top eight can pick up their awards (medals for the top three and ribbons for places five through eight) at the pool office).

Next up is our own meet on April 10. This meet will be our first using the online system of swimmers automatically doing their own entry. It's quick and easy, and we encourage all of our team to do it. Online registration can be done on our website starting this Wednesday, March 17.

HAIL TO THE ONE-HOUR HAMMERHEAD SWIMMERS!

 

Saturday, January 30, was an overcast morning at the pool, but that didn't deter the 26 participants in the latest edition of the Seminole Aquatics One-Hour Hammerhead Challenge Swim. Scott Goddin (5,150 yds) and Brianna Cooney (4,600 yds) won the overall male and female titles, each of them for the first time.

Age Group winners were: Trevor Zimlich in the 7-8 boys, Katarina Svetz in the 9-10 girls, Ryan Ackerson in the 9-10 boys, Kaitlin Pickens in the 11-12 girls, Connor Dacus in the 11-12 boys, Kara Vachon in the 13-14 girls, Trevor Mylin in the 13-14 boys, Dani Baugh in the 15 and over girls, and Thomas Durrant in the 15 and over boys. The Masters winners were Lisa Thomson and first-timer Dave Mylin.

The Team Champions were Scott Goddin, Kara Vachon, Kirbie Ackerson, and Lisa Thomson, who racked up a combined 16,500, winning by just 50 total yards in the closest team competition in the history of the event.

Coach Ackerson wants to thank all of our swimmers and timers for making the event so special.
