Ambush October Open

Philip Franke

Ambush recently hosted its first sanctioned meet of the year at the Lufkin Swim Center. The meet might've been small but it consisted of many personal bests, new time cuts, and even a few team records. Ambush ended the two-day meet with 7 team records, 25 'B' time cuts, 13 'BB' time cuts, and 3 'A' time cuts. USA Swimming announces motivational times every Olympic cycle with 'B' time cuts being labeled as the top 55% nationally for that age group and event, 'BB' being top 35%, 'A' top 15%, 'AA' top 8%, 'AAA' top 6%, and 'AAAA' top 2%. We are very proud of our athletes that achieved these standards and our athletes that are working their way to achieve these standards. Thank you parents for the continued support of the kids, coaches, and the program. 

Our next swim meet will be November 12th-13th at the Lufkin Swim Center. We encourage all athletes to participate in competition and to sign up for it by Nov. 7th.
