Florida and Owensboro Kudos

Florida Piranha Senior Invite Kudos, 3/4-3/7/21

RACE was represented at this LCM meet in Plantation Florida by two of our veteran senior swimmers, Madeline Osmun and Luke Shourds. Madeline swam PRs in every prelim swim and then again in both of her final swims, dropping 2 seconds overall in the 1 fr (62.51) and 1 second overall in the 50 fr (27.70) to earn 5th in the latter event. Luke became the first RACE athlete in several years to make Summer Junior cuts, doing so in both the 1 br (64.89) and 2 br (2.22.82), earning 4th place overall and establishing new team records in each. Congratulations to Madeline and Luke.
