Silver Fin Summer Invite

Westside Silver Fin Summer Invite Recap


This past weekend FAST flew out to Goodyear, Arizona to compete in the Silver Fin Summer Invite! Friday night was kicked off with a Sectional Qualification by Brennen ONeil in the 400IM! A great way to get the meet started, the energy was high going into Saturday morning Prelims session, where our athletes placed Top 16 to make Finals that night. With a quick turn around from Prelims to Finals, and many hydration breaks, FAST came back even FASTer at night. Everyone made positive changes to their swims to drop even more time! After a long hot and successful Saturday our athletes woke up Sunday morning ready to work hard to qualify for Finals, and they did just that. FAST started the Sunday Finals session with Ella Gaca-Theile earning the Winning title of the Girls 50 Free Shoot Out! Honorable mention to Josh Rogers for earning second place in the Boys 50 Free Shoot Out. Those wins kept FAST on the right track to earning even more best times in the last session of the meet, the best way to finish a travel meet with your teammates.


Greater than the swims this group of kids created memories they’ll never forget, and they built relationships with new teammates, older and younger. FAST was by far the loudest team on deck, kids were always behind lanes support each other and their goals! Thank you to everyone involved in making this meet a success! Parents, Coaches, Chaperones, and teammates!!
