Our final dual meet of the year was against the Chicago South Swim Club! It was a fun meet, and the swimmers truly raced well. Our swimmers of the meet are: Rose, Gisselle, Josiah, and Romeo.
Rose dropped a second on her 50 freestyle and 10 seconds on her 100 IM! Awesome! Gisselle shed 5 seconds off of her 50 breaststroke and 2 seconds off the 50 backstroke, finally breaking 1:00 on her backstroke! Romeo dropped 6 seconds in his 50 free and 13 seconds on his 50 backstroke! Josiah has been a great role model for the younger swimmers, demonstrating great racing while helping them prepare for their events. We are so proud of our swimmers after this fun season!
Our next meet is conference, and the lineup will be posted today at the pool. Again, not every swimmer will swim conference.
Our meet last week saw many improvements from the previous week. Almost every swimmer dropped time in at least one event, and the team had many fewer DQs. Also, many swimmers tried the 100 freestyle for the first time, and we were incredibly impressed with their performance. Swimmers of the meet are: Aldo, Mateo, Andrea, and Corri.
Aldo had an awesome 100 freestyle - his first time ever swimming it. He kept his head down and finished strong. He also dropped time in his 100 IM! Mateo, after a season of not dropping time, shed 5 seconds off of his 100 butterfly! It was a beautiful race. Andrea swam a 50 freestyle for the first time ever, and she also dropped 12 seconds off of her 25 backstroke! We are so proud of her progress. After swimming 50s last week, Corri dropped 6 whole seconds off of her 25 breaststroke! Overall, we are so impressed by every one of our athletes, and are excited for the final few weeks of the season.
