Coach's Callouts

  • The first-timers!  Welcome to competition swimming Anna N. 
  • Nice job in some new events Ava C, Bernadette and Dexter, Evangeline and Guy H, Cora, and Ella Z.
  • The milestones! first sub-30 50free for Dexter, sub-60 100fly for Brayden H.
  • Twice is Nice!  Cora led out the 10-U 200free relay with a PR 50free split and bettered it in the individual 50free less than 30min later...with a B-time no less.
  • Top overall performance
    • Two real standouts here...Brayden H gets the 4/4 PR sweep with a pair of State cuts, an event win, an A and AA time...but Addi L takes it to another level by matching almost ALL of that (4/4 sweep, one State cut, an event win, an A and AA time) and adds a pair of heat wins plus knocking down a team record that has stood for at least 17yrs (as far back as our electronic records go).  Way to go Addi!!
