"It feels good," said Noah S. after being named swimmer of the meet at last week's meet versus Oak Forest Swim Association, "I've never been Swimmer of the Meet before." Although he got disqualified in the 50 fly, Noah, 9, showed excellent breathing in his freestyle events at the meet and finished the last 10 yards of his fly beautifully. Noah has shown tremendous progress this season, particularly in the last few weeks!
Daniela and Alex, both 12, also earned the title because they swam lifetime bests in their events and raced very hard. Daniela dropped almost 2 seconds on her 100IM, winning a close second, and Alex dropped less than a second on his 50 free, winning first in that event by almost 10 seconds!
Clare, 18, has been a constant helper to the coaches at the meet, helping round up the little kids and always acting as a role model. On top of that, she is always willing to swim any event we throw her in, and consistently demonstrates a positive attitude.
It is clear that all four Swimmers of the Meet help make the team what it is. We are proud of our swimmers' successes, attitudes, and improvements across the board!
