IM Pentathlon recap

SST kept things rolling in the 2018-2019 competition season with a successful IM Pentathlon meet at Hamme Pool on September 29. We had 13 event winners and 55 top-3 finishes. SST was 2nd in the IMR team scores behind MSST but won the IMX Division. Combining the divisions, SST won the meet with 370 points, followed by MSST (321), YMCA (154), NPAC (108), and WWSC (23). We had 10 swimmers score in their respective division and age group high points including Jules Rupp (1st), Ava Welsh (2nd), Lily Peterson (4th), Sophie Henry (3rd), Bodin Kind (2nd), Isaiah Hulien (3rd), Blaque Secor (4th), Makenna Beshears (5th), Max Vollmer (2nd), and Brock Mills (2nd). SST also broke four meet records including: Jules Rupp (10&U 100 back, 100 fly), Zeke Rasmussen (10&U 100 fly), and Tatelyn Dixon (13-14 200 IM).

SST had 50 AK Age Group Champ times, 39 AK Summer Champ times, 15 AK Junior Olympic times, and one new IMX Games qualifier (Jules Rupp). Throughout the meet, SST had 71 best times (57%) but also had 16 DQs, something we’ll be working on before our next meet.
