The seniors did a great job at the State meet with lots of best times and some breakthrough swims.

Dani Cramer led the team as she finished in 4th place, in the highpoint awards, for the senior girls.  Dani had an outstanding weekend, qualifying for nationals in the 200 fly and 400 IM.  She also broke the 2:00 barrier in the 200 back and did a 55.44 100 back.  Dani now has 9 events that she can choose from, at nationals (50 back, 100 back, 200 back, 50 fly, 100 fly, 200 fly, 100 IM, 200 IM, and 400 IM), which shows an incredible versatility.

Dani, Ella Houwers, Gaby de Moya-Cotter, and Brianna Zimdars have now achieved the national qualifying time for the 400 medley relay!  We have not had a girls’ national relay qualify since 2010, so this is a big accomplishment and they could not have done it without the help and support of their teammates.

Young Liang swam all best times and set a new team record in the Senior 100 IM.

Brianna Zimdars qualifyed for Speedos in 2 more events.  Grace Foucault also achieved her first Speedo cut, in the 200 back.  Ella Houwers  had a big drop of 9 seconds, in her 400 IM, also making a new Speedo cut, for her, as well.

Our relays did a great job racing hard.  Ella Gorski dropped 3 seconds in her 100 free split (58 to 55) and Brianna Zimdars went from a 56 to a 54.  Dani split a 1:55 in the 800 free relay.
