Although we had a lot of amazing races and wins at our meet against Chicago South, the Swimmers of the Meet all earned their titles because of all of their noticeable improvements in technique and times.
Miguel swam his butt off today in the 100 free and 100 back, and had a faster stroke rate, better breathing, and better flip turns than he's ever done! And it showed: he dropped about 15 seconds on the 100 free and 31 seconds on the 100 back!
Miguel's sister Miriam did flip turns in a meet for the first time and that helped her drop 11 seconds on the 100 free and 5 seconds on the 100 back!
Mateo really picked it up this meet, and swam faster than we've ever seen! His arms were moving and his flip turns were solid. He dropped a crazy 14 seconds in his 50 free and 5 seconds from his previous best 50 back, with a total of 23 seconds dropped from his first meet.
Monica showed us all how hard she is willing to work, by keeping her head down while swimming and muscling through her first 50 fly! She also dropped 20 seconds from her previous 50 back time. Awesome job, everyone!
