Incredible Showing at SWAGR for AquaSol!

 

WOW!! is probably the best way to describe the performances of the seven athletes that represented AquaSol at the South West Age Group Championships March 21-24. All of these athletes had competed a few weeks prior at Junior Olympics. To come back to another long trials and finals meet with such a strong showing speaks to the dedication and work ethic of these swimmers.

 

 

There were over 50 teams from all over California, Arizona, Utah, and even a team from Hawaii at this 14/under championship meet. AquaSol placed 16th with only 7 swimmers.

 

 

Congratulations to Avery Pellicano, Katie Tadayeski, Isabella Andrews, Devin Churning-Sibert, Nico Talon, Keelan Ritchie, and Koen Vos for representing our team so strongly.

 

 

We had 33 top 10 finishes which was incredible considering the competition at this meet!

 

Devin – 400 IM (5), 200 free (5), 500 free (4), 200 fly (3), 100 fly (3)

Nico – 100 back (4), 200 fly (3), 100 fly (3)
