Good morning team,

 

Greetings from Maryland! Our team is swimming fast down here and crushing their finals events. We have 2 swimmers swimming in 2 events each tonight, Ula Weng & Gia Grotta.

 

Congratulations to Lily Calandra on a 1st Place finish in the 200 Backstroke, a 7th place finish in the 200 Fly, and many more best times along the way. Ula Weng finished 2nd in her 100yrd Breaststroke with a new best time, as well as 2nd in her 100yrd Backstroke, dropping even more time, a 6th place finish in her 100yrd IM, with more best times in her prelims swims also. Gia Grotto drops a massive 6 seconds in her 200yrd Freestyle, earning  4th place finish. Andraya Giagios also dropped nearly 4s in her 200 Fly finishing her B-final in 9th place overall. Aidan Pagano made finals as a second alternate and had a chance to swim yet another PB, moving from 18th place overall to 16th place in his 200 Breaststroke - not bad for a first-timer!

 

Huge shoutout to the finals swimmers, and let's not forget our SSC teammates who earned many best time performances in their prelims swims, Michael Ciardullo, Abby Glennon, Ryan Guerron, Aidan Kim, Grace Michels, Adam Qureshi, Rebecca Stamphel, and Clare Vinci.

 

Small team this year, but huge results. Thank you to all the parents who have assisted us with this meet, and thank you to all the swimmers who showed up to represent their team in this amazing facility and event. 

Please help us in cheering on our swimmers today as they finish up their final day of events here in the UMD Eppley Center.

 

-Coach Kyle
