We are more proud than ever of how our team has evolved. Everyone swam great last night. Here are 4 swimmers who shined a little brighter.
Leo Jacobs- Leo follows every bit of coaching and has made so much improvement in tightening up his freestyle and backstroke. He also knew his events and was better prepared than some well seasoned swimmers.
Deenah Fitzpatrick- Deenah has been working to push herself harder. She successfully dropped 5 seconds off her butterfly. Amazing!
Junior Ponce- Junior also has grown a lot. So much in fact that the official took notice and was able to articulate exactly how his butterfly improved.
Rose Childress- We are always looking for sportsmanship. Rose was found cheering on her team when no one else was. This is an admirable quality.

I hope you have all had wonderful Holidays full of rest. Here are the swimmers of the meet from our Home meet against Oak Forest on 12/13/18. Even though we didn't win (they were a much bigger team) everyone swam amazingly and we are all so proud to be your coaches.
Jordan Steen- Jordan comes and swims his tail off, rounds up his teammates to make sure the meet runs smoothly and cheers his teammates on. These are all qualities we admire in our swimmers.
Rose Childress- Rose has been pushing herself really hard in practice and it paid off because she dropped 20 seconds on her 50 Backstroke and took 2nd place.
Aldo Ramirez- Aldo was amazing. He displayed all the sportsmanship we employ as a team and he dropped 6 seconds on his 100 yd IM.
Emily Plancarte- Emily has also been working very hard and setting her own goals. Emily also dropped 1 second on her 50 backstroke. When you can win and lose a race by .01 second, every second dropped is incredible!
Way to go all swimmers!
