Condors tore up at the pool at Metro’s Senior Mets meet, a Championship meet geared towards Senior-level swimmers.

Emily Escobedo, our resident USA Swimming National Team Member in the 200 Breaststroke lead the charge. Emily would go on to win the 400 Individual Medley, the 200 Individual Medley, the 100 Breaststroke and the 200 Breaststroke. With all of those great swims, Emily would go on to win the High Point Award for the meet - no small feat with the great level of talent in Metro, whether they be age group swimmers or post-grads training in the area.

Christiana Regenauer also did an outstanding job of representing Condors at the meet. Christi would go on to win the 100 Butterfly, and the 50 Freestyle. Christi would come in a close second in the 100 Freestyle, and 4th in the 200 Freestyle. Christi ended third in scoring on the Women’s side of the meet.

Both of these girls swam the meet with little to no rest, and it goes without saying that we are extremely pleased with their performances, as well as the performance of the team in general. Condors would finish Senior Mets in 6th place overall. The Condors women earned a 3rd place overall finish against some tough competition.

In addition to these outstanding young women, Condors was well represented throughout the ranks with the following swimmers qualifying for a second swim in Finals:

Isabella Fountain (50 Free A Final, 100 Free B Final)

Ryan Evangelista (500 Free C Final, #13th in 1000 Free, #11th 1650 Free, 200 IM C Final)
