BNSC traveled to Fishers, Indiana to attend the Summer Sizzler three day swim meet this past weekend. With sixteen swimmers in attendance, BNSC was solid with 152 events with twenty of those being first time swims, 57 best times, and two new team records. 

It’s exciting to have our college swimmers Brett Spires (Michigan State University) and Anthony Williamson (University of Indianapolis) train with BNSC over the summer and see them compete in the Summer Sizzler meet beside their teammates. 

Congratulations to Tony John, Ava Lane-Barbour,  and Trevor Tucci for competing in their first long course meet with BNSC!

Ali Pearson (girls 15-18) breaks a three-year record with a time of 18:56.67 LCM in the 1500 freestyle.
