Your FAST Tigers were back in action over the weekend at both the Community Health Network FAST Summer Jam and the Counsilman Classic.

At the Counsilman Classic meet at the IU Natatorium downtown, your Tigers competed well as they swam to 5 lifetime best swims and 3 new Long Course Summer Junior National cuts! Earning new lifetime best swims were: Jackson Carlile (1), Simon Davies (1), Kyle Ponsler (1), and JoJo Ramey (2). The new lifetime bests for Jackson, Simon, and Kyle were all new Long Course Summer Junior National cuts! Congratulations to you all!

What a weekend! We are so proud of your athletes for the efforts they put into this past weekend's meets. Many tried new events for the first time, went up against amazing competition and held their ground, and the number of lifetime best swims earned in the pool was staggering. More importantly, we appreciate the Tiger Values that were displayed over the weekend. There were a number of instances that support that. Thank you to all of the officials, timers, and event support personnel who worked at the Community Health Network FAST Summer Jam, and to our parents for supporting their athletes and this program. Our athletes could not have achieved these results without your efforts supporting them and running the meets. Thank you!

It was a great weekend of racing and we are excited to see what our athletes do at the Z-Heat Invitational in two weeks. We look forward to seeing what the future holds as you reach your goals… and set new ones!

Tiger Up!
