Our first meet of the season was back on May 4th up in Burnsville.  We had a crew of eleven swimmers compete.  The group combined for 70% lifetime bests, two of which were new Regional cuts.  Dropping time in all three races were Quinn Edwards, Cecelia Elliot, Jim Graham and Summer Moeller.  Summer and Quinn also added new Regional cuts.  

Our second meet of the season was our home meet on May 18th.  Total, we had fifty-three swimmers compete.  The group combined for 56% lifetime best swims and managed eleven new Regional swims.  For many jumping back into competition, this was a great starting point.  The meet was also difficult as the races had quick turnarounds from one race to the next.  The meet was also scored and we finished first in our Division.

We had quite a few swimmers competing in their first meet.  Isabella Bisel, Oliver Born, Annalisa Larson, Edythe Malecha, Parker Malecha, Evan Musicant, John Tracy III and Camden Trotman all did a stellar job in their first competition.

Having awesome meets in the water included Cecelia Elliot, Grayson Gray, Josie Hauck, Edy McLaughlin, Molly Roethler, Peyton Truman and Meadow Vrtis.  Cecelia was a perfect 5/5 in her races.  Grayson dropped in all four of his races.  Josie was also 4/4 and added three new Regional cuts.  Edy was a near perfect 4/5.  Molly was a perfect 4/4 in her races.  Peyton finished 3/4 and added a new Regional cut.  Finally, Meadow was a perfect 4/4 and added a new Regional cut.

Great job by all those who have jumped in on a competition!  To see full results hover over ‘Events and Competition’, then click ‘Meet Results’, the click ‘Results by Meet’ and you will be find all of our past meets.
