Divisionals

Meet info is available here and we will add more to this as the week progresses. 

We do not have ITD times yet - the past two years, the initial timeline has been edited which has impacted session start times. This meet is a tremendous opportunity for fast racing, but the morning session tends to be very long. 

Due to the long session, we are not going to enter 11-12 relays. I apologize if this is disappointing to anyone, but last summer's prelims session lasted a total of six hours not including warmup time - eliminating relay and awards obligations will get everyone out the door at least 90 minutes earlier, if not more. In the past we've had athletes swim early events and have to wait around four hours to swim a relay. I feel it is our best interests to focus on individual races, then prepare for finals or head home. Thank you for your understanding.


Age Group State

Congratulations to all who competed at this weekend's Age Group State Championships - Southeastern finished fourth with 909.5 points, our highest scoring total since 2011. Last summer, we scored 465 points...what an impressive improvement in just one year!

Here were some of the highlights from our group:

  • Jihoon Jung scored 82 individual points, medaling in all six of his individual swims (3rd in 50 fly, 4th in 100 fly, 6th in 50 breast, 5th in 100 breast, 7th in 200 breast, 7th in 200 IM) and breaking the team record in the 200 breast
  • Avery Hannon scored 114 individual points, winning five individual events (50 free, 100 free, 50 back, 100 back, 200 IM), taking 3rd in the 200 free, and leading both 10&U girls relays to state titles - she also broke six team records and won the 10&U girls high point award
  • Juli Goss recorded three lifetime bests in the 50 back, 100 back, and 200 back, placing 14th in the 200 to score 3 points for SSC
  • Izzy Heuck recorded a lifetime best in the 50 fly, earning a finals swim and placing 16th to score 1 point for SSC
  • The 11-12 girls 200 medley relay of Avery Witt, Rachel Ang, Maria Yant, and Izzy Heuck took bronze, scoring 32 points for SSC
  • The 11-12 boys 200 medley relay of Kruz Luhmann, Collin Huston, Jihoon Jung, and Kevin Baker finished fifth, scoring 28 points for SSC
  • The 11-12 girls 200 free relay of Izzy Heuck, Avery Witt, Anaya Lammie, and Brooke Willard finished eighth, scoring 22 points for SSC

Congratulations, Royals - you all played a role in this success for our team!
