  NSC finished 3rd in the 2012 Meet of champs in Brentwood, TN. Despite having only 16 swimmers compete, we beat many larger teams thanks to some outstanding performances. Our swimmers had many personal best times and won several events, while still finding times to enjoy activities in Nashville such as the Opry Mills Mall and the Rockettes! Meets like this provide valuable experience and help swimmers learn to deal with the demands of travel meets and the prelims/finals format.

  Yesterday at USA Swimming's Jr National Championships (18 & Unders), Lilly King set a new team record and an Indiana Association record of 1:01.73!  The time was good for 2nd place (IN THE NATION for 18&Unders).  The time also ranks Lilly in the top 100 breast times of all ages in the nation!  Congrats to Lilly and GREAT JOB!

80 Swimmers competed at Mt. Vernon this weekend and helped NSC win the 2012 Candy Cane Classic. In addition to the team trophy, we came home with several meet records and lots of personal best times, which are indicative of the hard work that has been put in thus far this season. As we are approach mid - season, keep working hard.  Your goals are reached because of the work you put in when training is at its peak and the going gets tough.  Make the commitment NOW to attend all...
