2021 Louisiana State Championship Recap

NU WAVE SWIM CLUB

Louisiana SC State Championship

March 25-28, 2021

 

 

Congratulations to all the members of our State Championship team for contributing to our overall 4th place finish!

 

This is a great team result for our swimmers, many of whom have not participated in a championship swim meet in 20 months. We had expected contributions from many of our established swimmers. And, also, a lot of points from some newcomers,especially our 10&U crew!

10&U's- Ian Budde, Tally Gatlin, Annabelle Germanese, Maya Karlitz, Amanda Milner, Tripp Yount.

 

The weekend allowed our entire team and coaching staff to take part in this championship at the same site, all working together. It was a valuable experience to have our swimmers receive feedback from any and all of the tremendous coaches we have. Our team was exposed to Coach Blake, who will be an indispensable part of the Lakeside site moving forward. 

 

Special thanks and appreciation to Coach Sarah for all the work she has put into the Lakeside site, LAT, and Nu Wave. She will never be replaced, nor will she be forgotten. Wishing her and her family the best in their move to Florida in April!

 

Thanks to all the parents/families who traveled to Shreveport to support your swimmer and our team. Thank you for being respectful of the current guidelines in place. It has been a sacrifice for all to get to the finish line of this season. Your efforts are very much appreciated!
