kamehameha swim club

Its been 14 months since Kamehameha Swim Club has had a meet on Hawaiian soil. Most of the swimmers have not taken a leap from a starting block much longer than that, but that didn’t stop personal best times from rolling in. There were many fast times all around, but due to there being so many we’ll stick to five top improvements for both the boys and the girls. 

Most noteworthy of the meet was Stone Miller’s qualification to Futures Championships 2021. He qualified for Futures in the 100 freestyle with a time of 53.25, qualifying under the time of 54.09. He also qualified in the 50 freestyle with a time of 24.79, just .10 seconds under the time standard. Stone dropped time in the 100 fly as well with a time of 1:04.67 from a 1:09.60. 
Mia Monahan had a great mile on the very first day of the meet, dropping her personal time by a whole minute and a half, 1:37.07 to be precise. She lowered her time from a 21:41.16 to a 20:04.09. 
Knut Robinson also had a great meet with all best times but most noteworthy was his mile. Knut dropped his time by one minute in the mile going from a 19:01.78 to 18:00.02. 
Jaime Bhattacharyya put up two personal bests, dropping 17 seconds in the 100-freestyle clocking in at 1:00.09, and dropping almost 26 seconds in his 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:21.32. 
Dustin Kealoha set a new personal best in the individual medley with a time of 2:32.59, dropping his previous time by over 10 seconds. 
Tehani Kealoha dropped her personal best by 5.61 seconds, clocking in at a time of 2:25.78. 
Sage Miller posted all personal best times but the most improvement of them all was the 200 free as she dropped almost 26 seconds with a time of 2:18.51. 
Taro Tsuji had a great 50 freestyle, dropping almost 3 seconds and getting under the 30 second mark with a time of 28.24. 
Kimie Ginoza swam fast with a time of 5:09.22, dropping her personal best time by 12.44 seconds. 
Briscoe Beaton dropped his personal best time for the 200 freestyle by 5.89 seconds, clocking in at 2:00.08. 
The swimmers swam fast, and it shows that no matter what happens, they have the work ethic to improve and get better with the changing world around them. We would also like to thank the parents and family members that came to time for the swimmers and volunteer because without you we wouldn’t have had a meet.  Thank you for supporting your swimmers to be the best they can be.
