Our last meet was a great one. All the swimmers showed excellent technique and clearly displayed their hard work. Oak Forest is the same pool that Conference will be held at this week so it was a great opportunity for the swimmers to get to feel out the pool.. There were a few swimmers who showed just a little extra something. They are:
Aaliyah Pichardo: Aaliyah has been working very hard on her freestyle technique. Speed is nothing without proper technique. Aaliyah dropped 10 seconds on her 100 freestyle.
Jordan Steen: Jordan has been working for a while now on his butterfly technique. As one of the more challenging strokes, it can be quite difficult to drop time on it. Jordan dropped 6 seconds on his 50 fly.
Maya Hooks: Maya is very talented in and out of the pool. When she is in the pool she always gives 150%. She is very close to a regional time for her 50 freestyle and she dropped 1 second on it.
Charles Stewart: Charles has a very unique natural ability to swim. He makes his hard work look effortless. His talent has earned him times for 5 regional events.
We had a really great meet. A lot of swimmers dropped time. We observed techniques from practice being used in the water. Starts were great and turns improved. A few swimmers had some exceptional accomplishments this evening. They are:
Deenah Fitzpatrick- Deenah had reached a plateau. It seemed no matter how hard she worked she couldnt get the race to show her efforts. She just made it over the hurdle with a 3 second drop on her 100IM!
Trinity Gilbert- It's hard to go all out after you haven't had practice in a few days. But Trinity showed us where her heart is. After days out of the water, Trinity dropped 4 seconds off her IM.
Quetzali Pichardo- Quetzali had been on vacation. That means that she missed a lot of practice, and right after winter break. She showed us how hard she works by dropping 14 seconds in her 100 IM.
Sha'man Spann- We always tell the swimmers it doesnt matter hiw fast you are if you have technique to work on. Sha'man has been working on his butterfly kick and timing. His hard work was rewarded with a 2 second drop on his 50 Fly.
