The weekend of April 13-14, over 100 Rapids swimmers from RD, AGD, PAG, and Youth Comp raced at the Winskill Dolphin LMR. Similar to previous LMRs, the meet was a two-day event, split into four sessions by age group. For RD white + swimmers Lien David, Kaya Mohindroo, Anton Bersamira, Henry Lin, and Joshua Rathwell, it was the first LMR-level meet.

For the rest of the Rapids, this was the first meet back after spring break and great chance to try out new racing skills after some time off. It was also a chance to rehearse pre- and post-race routines in their home pool before upcoming long course competitions.

Congrats to Yuuki von Huendeberg for his new Tier 1 time in the 400m free and Jenna Zhang for her new Tier 2 in the 200 fly.

Meet MVPs: Jerry Tao from PAG - new club record in the 200 free and 50 breast; Sophia Raffai - new club record in the 200m butterfly.

Most Improved: AGD2’s Iris Chen - dropped over 70 seconds total and a first Tier 1 time in the 200m IM!

100% Best Times: Iris Chen, Kyan Chow, Gary Du, Chantelle Edwardson, Jeffrey Guan, Taegan Harries, Allan Jiang, Liam Pearce, Sophia Raffai Yiguo Song, Lauren Leung, Merina Lau, Trenton Lau, Yan Madorsky, Josh Nygard, Benjamin Jiewen Shen, Ava Tan, Jerry Tao, Leo Titan

Excellent racing by all the swimmers who competed this weekend!
