BNSC Back to the Blocks in March

Coach Matt Elliott

In the month of March BNSC returned to the pool to compete at three separate meets. The first meet was the Speedo Sectional Championship in Des Moines, IA. Congratulations to Hadley Fudge, Olivia Haerr, Ali Straub, Brooke Walker, and Mara Walker. All the girls achieved at least one lifetime best time and the girls competed well against some of the fastest swimmers in the Midwest. A special congratulations to Hadley Fudge for qualifying for the Futures Championships in the 100 backstroke and breaking the BNSC team record!

Last weekend several BNSC competed at the PAWW St. Patrick’s Day Invitational. Congratulations to Clara Waits and Balian Greinger for competing in their first meet!  Also, congratulations to Kenna Malinowski for breaking the BNSC team record in the 13-14 50-yard freestyle! There were also great swims by Lyndsey Hackman, Cai Marks, Caelin O’Malley, Nolan Pyle, Wade Pyle, Lexi Rankin, Maddie Rankin, Tessa Ritter, Ali Straub, and Addi Vincent. It was great to get more of our swimmers and coaches back on deck competing!

Finally, last weekend Tyson Tucci and Camden Swigert competed at the Illinois Winter Open at the brand-new FMC Natatorium in Westmont, IL. The boys represented themselves and BNSC well with the way they competed with some of the top swimmers in the state. Tyson was the Winter Open champion in the 1500 Freestyle with a new BNSC club record. Both Tyson and Camden broke several of the BNSC 15-18 boys records. Way to go BNSC!
