Apple Capital Swim Meet - More Fun Than Disneyland!

Kirby Schaufler

It started with a pair of Marlin Relays finishing .01 apart, and ended with great racing after a 2 hour thunder and lightning rain delay. Every Marlin that swam had best times, but more importantly we enjoyed hanging out together in the rain and sun, enjoying each others company. An impromptu dance broke out as the 1500 competitors got ready at about 9:00 pm. All the 1500 swimmers placed in the top 10 in their age group. For 15 & over girls, Katelyn Darrah was 4th, Rachel Howard 6th, and Kenzie Smith 7th. For the boys Ryker Lichtenberg was 6th and Kirby Schaufler 10th! Other Marlins placing included Natalie Bennett 6th in the 50 back and Nanako Kempma 6th in the 100 free. In the afternoon sessions Megan McCoy, and Olivia Wiley also swam well. In the morning session our brave swimmers happily jumped in at 6:45 am and swam great! It included: Layne Kopischka, EmmaLee Stewart, and Riley and Peyton Beauchamp.

Way to go Marlins!
