Heather Scibetta

The Titans had a busy weekend July 9th and 10th! We had two opportunities to swim right here in Western New York. We sent 21 Swimmers to BAAC’s Summer LC Classic and we hosted our 26th time trial in Short Course yards, with 66 Titans in attendance. Thanks again to all who helped and participated in the events.

Friday was the busy day! Nine Titans swam at the University of Buffalo’s Alumni Arena pool in Long Course. While 66 Titans were swimming fast in Short course at our home pool the Town of Tonawanda Aquatic Center. Lucas Castelo Barnum, Vinnie Ciraolo, Emma Cwiklinski, Katlyn Forphal, Kia Heelan, Lucy Lyons, Campbell Murphy, Harrison Roberts, and Meredith Roberts were in it for the long haul as Friday night’ session was just over 4 hours on deck. This used to be the normal day at a meet and it was good to have time to warm up and cool down between swims! Great efforts by all in attendance in events from the 50 free to the 200’s breast and back! 

In the 12&U session of the BAAC meet we had 7 swimmers, Ryan Bronson, Lucy Nudell, Kaitlyn Forpahl, Kaia Heelan, Megan Hufnagel, Elizabeth Homish, and Tess Michalowski. Each and everyone of these swimmers brought positive attitudes and lots of energy. Many of these swimmers came into this long course meet and swam events they have never swam before. It was very exciting to see the kids having fun and cheering for one another.  Each of these swimmers deserved to be highlighted for an amazing meet, the coaches were incredibly proud to see the work they put in at practice shining through in their races. 

Sat afternoon the the 13 and overs came to UB ready to race. Nearly every swim was a person best time. Haley Griffin 2 personal Best, Maya Marcyan 3, Emma Cwiklinski 3, Vinnie Ciraolo 1, Brady Garcia 2, Jackson James 1, Lucy Lyons 5, Campbell Murphy 3, Harrison Roberst 2. We are loking forward to the STAR meet then getting into our taper meets to finish out the season.
