FLEET Lights It Up at FCST Spring Fling Champs!

We are so proud of our swimmers who went to the Spring Fling Champs this past weekend at FCST. All of the coaches were so excited about all the great things the swimmers accomplished. Every night as we checked in with each other from our respective meets, Coach Kristen would communicate how fun it was to see so many people excel one after another. 

The coaches were kept busy with over 95% of the FLEET Swimmers qualifying for a swims at night during the meet. Several made their first finals ever! What a great experience for all!

Not only did the swimmers make finals, but they were able to post over 65% Best Times! What a fantastic outcome for these swimmers who have worked so hard throughout the season. 

Within those best times, we had 21 New A times and 6 New AA times. These accomplishments opened up many swimmers’ eyes to what they can do and it was so exciting to hear the reports each evening. Not to be outdone by any of the other meets, our FLEET swimmers posted many brand-new cuts.

 

Please take a look at all the fantastic things these swimmers accomplished
