Our swimmers all swam amazing races at our meet against Oak Lawn! So many swimmers dropped time and swam beautiful races throughout the competition. Our swimmers of the meet were: Giselle, Noah, Justin, and Brooke.
Giselle is one of our level 4 swimmers who has been working extremely hard at practice. She has been making her strokes more efficient therefore dropping time consistently. She dropped significant time in her events and helped her relay to win as well! Brooke is a returning swimmer who has swam with EASC for multiple seasons. Brooke swam an amazing IM where she dropped time and out touched her competition at the end of the race!
Noah is a level three swimmer who is always a hoot to work with. If you ever need a joke of the day, he is your man. Noah’s hard work has been really paying off in all of his events. He dropped time and also has been taking our lessons at practice to heart allowing him to have more effective strokes and breathing. Justin is also a returning swimmer who knows when he needs to kick it into high gear. This allowed him to score in his individual races as well as his relays.
Congratulations to all the swimmers!
WOWZA the meet against Oak Forest was a fun meet for all. All of our swimmers
swam great races and their hard work over the last few months is really starting to
pay off! Although all of our swimmers swam a great meet, the swimmers of this meet
are Nate, Bobby, Sammy, and Sam.
Nate has been really pushing himself at practice, trying to master his stroke
technique and it really showed. His backstroke is looking awesome and he dropped
some great time in the event! Bobby really stepped it up during the meet, swimming
a 50 in the meet during the 200 free relay. Bobby is one of our younger swimmers
who up until this point has only swam 25's in meets.
Both Sammy and Sam swam awesome meets! Sam has been working really hard at
practice and been putting in the extra work each day. This hard work has helped her to
drop time in her events and also swim some beautiful races against Oak Forest.
Sammy has been on our team for a few seasons and her hard work over the past
year have really paid off. She swam one of the best meets of her swimming career,
dropping time in all her events and showing serious improvements in her technique.
Woah! What an awesome meet! Everyone that was able to come to the meet against the Mighty Krocs swam great races. So many swimmers have been perfecting their strokes and refining their technique, even when swimming that last few yards of their races. Although all the swimmers did great, the Swimmers of the Meet are: DJ, Madison, Maglio, and Paulina.
This is DJ’s first year swimming with the Sea Demons, and his hard work at practice really shows. This past week we worked to perfect our butterfly, and DJ was able to swim the 50 fly as one of his events for the first time! Madison is also a swimmer that is new to our team this year. She has been really working on her dives, turns, and starts which was apparent at the meet! She simply didn't just drop time in her events, but she also was able to finish all her races as strong as she started them.
Maglio has been swimming with the Sea Demons for many seasons and is a great asset to the team. Maglio is a fantastic leader and shares his passion for swimming with our younger/new swimmers. While swimming against the Mighty Krocs, Maglio dropped significant time in his backstroke and showed great sportsmanship by staying in the pool while his teammates and competitors were still swimming. Paulina is also a returner, but has shown tremendous growth in her abilities this season. She dropped time in all her events and was leading cheers at each end of the pool, making sure to support all her teammates.
We are so proud of our swimmers, and we are excited to continue this success as we move forward in the season.
Not only have we completed our first home meet of the season, but we also saw amazing sportsmanship and time drops from our team! We want to take a moment to really recognize how impressive it is to the coaches to see our swimmers shaking hands with their opponents and staying in the water until everyone has completed their races. Those actions reveal good sportsmanship as well as strong team unity.
The swimmers of the meet are: Corri, Ace, Aylin, and Jose. Corri not only dropped three seconds in her 25 fly, which she has been working on tirelessly in practice, but she also accidentally swam the event twice due to a confusion in the line up. Corri was a real trooper and did her best in both events! Aylin is a new swimmer to EASC, and she dropped an incredible 20 seconds in her 25 free. She has shown significant improvements in her stamina and also her technique over the last month!
Ace is one of our new swimmers who has been working tirelessly at practice. His work has really turned into improvements in the pool! During his 100 free, he dropped 7 seconds while also doing flip turns at each well without breathing into any of them! Jose, a new swimmer whose family has been on the team for some time, has been stepping up his game significantly. He dropped time in both of his events because he has been taking the drills we have been doing in practice to heart. By applying his techniques from practice into his races, he has showed incredible growth!
We are so proud of our team and look forward to more outstanding swims, continued sportsmanship, and greater improvements as the season progresses.
The Red and White meet started our winter season off with a bang! We had some amazing races made by both teams including many swimmers doing personal bests and working on skills that have been shown in practice. Each meet we pick four swimmers as the "swimmers of the meet." These swimmers are picked based on leadership, swimming, and team spirit. This was our first meet of the season, and although it doesn't count as an official meet, too many swimmers to count had amazing races! It was incredibly challenging to pick swimmers of the meet with so many time drops and so much sportsmanship being shown. The swimmers of the Red and White meet are: Chiquita, Mauricio, Izzy, and Joseline.
Two returning Sea Demons earned the title at the meet. Chiquita swam his fastest time at the Red and White meet in the 100 free. He was there cheering on his teammates and helping to make sure that new swimmers knew what to do. He was a huge help to White team! Izzy was also a huge help to the white team, not only by swimming an incredible personal best in her IM, but also by stationing herself at the shallow end making sure to cheer for everyone!
There were two new swimmers who also earned the title. This meet was a first for Joseline and although she was nervous, with the help of her teammates, she swam her first meet and even asked to but put in an extra event! Mauricio also swam a great meet but his flexibility and willingness to help the team is what really stood out. He is an 8 and under but when our 12 and under relay needed a replacement, he was willing to step up and help!
There were many great swims across the board, and many time drops (which is AWESOME for the first meet of the year!). More importantly. we saw excellent sportsmanship and a lot of excitement from all swimmers during the meet. This is going to be an exciting season!
