We seriously had our best conference performance since E.A.S.C. was restarted in 2014.
For perspective: in our first season, only 4 medals were awarded to Sea Demons (top 6 finishers for individual events and top 3 finishers for relays win medals). Last summer, 20 medals were awarded.
After a very fun meet against BBSC last week, the swimmers of the meet are: Madelyn, Gen, Zach, Josiah, and Melany.
Madelyn swam her best ever 50 breast, dropping 9 seconds on her previous best time. She also dropped 3 seconds in the 50 free, earning her a second spot in Conference! Gen swam perhaps her best meet ever. She dropped time in both the 50 back and the 50 breast and came up from behind on her relay and out-touched her competition! Zach has been going to two practices a day for the last month, and it is showing in the pool. His technique has never looked better, especially in the relays.
Josiah, who joined the team this year as a 13 year old, has consistently been pushing himself in practice and it is showing in his performances. He dropped 5 seconds on his 100 breast and was an important part of both relays. Melany surprised us all in her first ever 50 fly, where she swam like a beast and secured her spot on the conference lineup! She also dropped 3 seconds on her 50 back.
We are so proud of every one of the Sea Demons and the progress they have all made this season! We're ready for Conference!
