End of January Updates

Coach Becky Sapio

Happy end of January to all!  We hope this finds our families well.  I know the end of December and the month of January has been challenging but we are happy to see our practice attendance numbers ramping up again. We were able to have two successful meets during this time. 

December 27-28 –At the Titans Holiday Meet in Tonawanda, 46 of our swimmers posted 64% Best times allowing many swimmers to complete their IMX at the meet.  Heck yeah!

 January 14-16 – The team traveled with 72 athletes to Webster for the Niagara LSC Power Point Meet. It was an exciting opportunity for the swimmers stay in a hotel and compete against swimmers outside the Buffalo area. A great team environment resulting in 68% best times. Coaches were proud of our swimmers attitudes toward their races during a heavy training phase over the past month.  Congratulations to our High Point winners!

9 Year-Old Girls - Samantha Cook 2nd place.

10 Year-Old Girls – Hannah Wangelin 2nd place, Abby Egyhazy 3rd place.

12 Year-Old Boys – Nate Giglio 2nd place.

13 & Older Women - Elle Noecker – 1st place.

Special Congrats to Elle Noecker for breaking the 15-16 Girls Niagara Swimming LSC Record in the 100 IM in 56.94!!

We’re looking forward to our 26th Snowball Meet at Orchard Park high school on Saturday, February 4th.  All the jobs are posted on the TWST website and we need everyone’s help to run a successful event.

Good Luck to many of our Boys Swimming for their high school varsity teams as they begin their Championship Meet season, let’s crush it gentleman!

So many deserving Swimmers of the Meet & Swimmers of the Month have been receiving bag tags during practices.  The list is posted under the Swimmers tab.  We also had 28 swimmers complete their IMX that will receive bag tags recognizing their accomplishment!
