Sorry for posting this one a little later than usual! Swimmers of the Meet for our meet against Mannheim two weeks ago are: Mateo, Alyssa, Kate, and Camila.
Mannheim is a 25 meter pool, which is a little bit longer than our 25 yard pool. Because of this, our swimmers' times don't match up exactly. It is also more challenging to swim in a longer pool, and our swimmers (especially the Swimmers of the Meet) met that challenge. Mateo had an awesome meet, with great races in the 50 free and 50 back. His streamlines were better than ever, and we could tell how much he was focused on swimming fast!
Alyssa is always ready for her races, and when she got in the water at Mannheim, she dominated the 8 and under age group with excellent swimming and great breathing technique. Kate has progressed so much this season. A few months ago, she could barely make it across the pool. Now, we can always count on her to race and perform in any race or relay! Kate is a great example of what hard work and good attendance to practice can do. Camila had amazing swims across the board. She even won the 50 backstroke for her age group, despite rarely swimming that event in meets!
Great job Sea Demons!
