Another fun winning meet for the EASC! We had a great, fast meet against Burbank this past Thursday. As a team, we are looking fitter, faster, and more confident in the water. Swimmers of the Meet are: Tim, Samanta, Galilea, and Victor.
In the past few meets, Tim has had a lot of success in his races, but has been off from his best times. Thursday's meet was a return to form, with Tim's times dropping back down to his old personal bests! It is always great watching an athlete work through a competitive wall! Samanta, who just aged up to the 10 & Under age group, dropped over 5 seconds in her 50 free! It was great to watch her improve her time in an older, faster age group. Gali also dropped a bunch of time in backstroke! Focusing on technique in practice is truly benefiting her when it comes to meets. Victor was named swimmer of the meet not only for his awesome effort in the pool, but for his natural leadership with the younger and novice swimmers. He is incredibly dependable and helpful, always getting the kids ready and helping them read the heat sheet.
Thank you, all, for another great meet!
