NSSC - Turkey Classic Success!!

Mathew OBrien
North Shore Swim Club hosted and competed at the annual Turkey Classic meet at the Boston Sports Institute in Wellesley over the weekend. The three day meet was split into 11 different sessions in order to meet the Covid-19 safety guidelines and provided a safe, competitive environment for all athletes. The 110 NSSC swimmers raced extremely well, earning numerous personal best times and many new qualifying times for championship meets.  The meet was a celebration in believing in their training for the past 12 weeks, overcoming external factors and believing in themselves and their teammates! Our swimmers were gracious and appreciative of being able to race, making the most of the 2012 Olympic Trial pool at BSI. 
 
In addition to doing an incredible job in the water, NSSC swimmers were also great on the pool deck! They supported each other by cheering and timing for each other during their races. They juggled masks, warmup, races, hydration, cooldowns and short turnarounds between races, all while taking care to be socially distant. It was truly an amazing job of team work demonstrated by all involved. A big thank you to the coaches for their tireless work, parents for their understanding of our restrictions and everyone who watched online!   Next up for North Shore is the 12 and under meet at Gordon College on December 5th.
 
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Thank you for being part of North Shore Swim Club! 
 
 
Sincerely,
