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.
