Gold Medal Achieves 100 State Long Course Times at the Phoenix 12 and Under Meet

Michael Chasson

The Gold Medal swimmers performed very well at the first long course meet in almost 2 years.  Obviously, we had 100% best times.  One of our primary goals was to establish long course state qualifying times.  Many of our swimmers previously had short course (25 yard pool) state qualifying times, but for state meet seeding purposes, everyone needs to establish good long course (50 meter pool) state qualifying times.  34 Gold Medal swimmers competed in 195 total events.  In those 195 events, 100 long course state qualifying times were established.  More than ½ of the performances were state qualifying performances!  Well done!
