FLEET Seniors DOMINATE at Sectionals

Richard Boucher

FLEET Seniors Dominate at Sectionals!

I wanted to let everyone know how proud I am of our Fleet Senior swimmers and how they dominated at Sectionals. Throughout the meet I was complimented on how well our swimmers were performing by opposing teams’ coaches. What a humbling experience. From last year’s 26th place finish to this year’s 2nd place finish was mind blowing! This tells the story of what we can accomplish when swimmers train to their potential over long periods of time. I can’t ask for anything more. I am thankful to all of the Senior swimmers who stepped up and all of the Fleet parents who have been so supportive of my direction in the Fleet program.

While I was excited to hear all the fantastic things that the Age Groupers were doing at TAGS, Colin and Rick were equally excited for the kids at Sectionals. It is so fun to work with great staff of professionals who truly care about all of the kids. The whole Age Group staff was so proud to see all the kids who they have worked with over the years continue to progress through their sporting career. (I would guess that Coach Jeff has promised the Sectional swimmers free tickets to Disney World via my personal account. LOL).

One of the goals this year was to make Sectionals fun and for everyone to get excited about each others’ performance. I can tell you that during finals the kids were cheering for each other behind their lanes when possible and congratulating each other one after another for their great performance. This is the first time I have ever been to a Sectional meet where 100% of all swimmers contributed to scoring points either individually, relays, or both. It was truly a team effort and everybody was part of the team’s success. We had several new Future standards, Winter Junior Standards, Summer Junior Standards, National Top 10 times, and Team Records! 

Most of all I want to thank the kids for their commitment to Fleet. Looking around the pool deck it was so obvious that our kids are proud to swim at Fleet and represent us at every level. TAGS, Sectionals, All Meets … our swimmers have Fleet Pride!
