As the season winds down with final duel meet behind us, we want to take a moment to thank everyone who has been part EASC thus far. Everyone - swimmers, parents, and coaches - has put in so much time and energy in making our team as amazing as it is. All of the coaches are beyond proud of the progress each swimmer has made and is looking forward to the seasons to come. Our final meet against Burbank was a great way to end the dual meet season. We had swimmers dropping time, trying new events, and most importantly, showing great sportsmanship.
The swimmers of the meet were: Jenny, Olivia, Carter, and Jordan. Jenny has been
swimming with us for multiple seasons and is the younger sister of our very own
coach Alan. She dropped time in all of her events, most notably dropping ten
seconds in her 100-yard free style. Olivia, also a veteran EASC swimmer, was a great
asset to her relays and dropped time in both her individual events.
Carter has joined EASC again, after taking a few seasons off, and has been putting in
the time and energy. He swam some amazing races, dropped time, and was a great
cheerer for our other swimmers. Jordan, another EASC returner, stepped up this
meet by swimming in the age group above his usual in both of his relay events,
helping to gain many points for our team.
Congratulations to all! We are so proud of you.
Our swimmers all swam amazing races at our meet against Oak Lawn! So many swimmers dropped time and swam beautiful races throughout the competition. Our swimmers of the meet were: Giselle, Noah, Justin, and Brooke.
Giselle is one of our level 4 swimmers who has been working extremely hard at practice. She has been making her strokes more efficient therefore dropping time consistently. She dropped significant time in her events and helped her relay to win as well! Brooke is a returning swimmer who has swam with EASC for multiple seasons. Brooke swam an amazing IM where she dropped time and out touched her competition at the end of the race!
Noah is a level three swimmer who is always a hoot to work with. If you ever need a joke of the day, he is your man. Noah’s hard work has been really paying off in all of his events. He dropped time and also has been taking our lessons at practice to heart allowing him to have more effective strokes and breathing. Justin is also a returning swimmer who knows when he needs to kick it into high gear. This allowed him to score in his individual races as well as his relays.
Congratulations to all the swimmers!
WOWZA the meet against Oak Forest was a fun meet for all. All of our swimmers
swam great races and their hard work over the last few months is really starting to
pay off! Although all of our swimmers swam a great meet, the swimmers of this meet
are Nate, Bobby, Sammy, and Sam.
Nate has been really pushing himself at practice, trying to master his stroke
technique and it really showed. His backstroke is looking awesome and he dropped
some great time in the event! Bobby really stepped it up during the meet, swimming
a 50 in the meet during the 200 free relay. Bobby is one of our younger swimmers
who up until this point has only swam 25's in meets.
Both Sammy and Sam swam awesome meets! Sam has been working really hard at
practice and been putting in the extra work each day. This hard work has helped her to
drop time in her events and also swim some beautiful races against Oak Forest.
Sammy has been on our team for a few seasons and her hard work over the past
year have really paid off. She swam one of the best meets of her swimming career,
dropping time in all her events and showing serious improvements in her technique.
Woah! What an awesome meet! Everyone that was able to come to the meet against the Mighty Krocs swam great races. So many swimmers have been perfecting their strokes and refining their technique, even when swimming that last few yards of their races. Although all the swimmers did great, the Swimmers of the Meet are: DJ, Madison, Maglio, and Paulina.
This is DJ’s first year swimming with the Sea Demons, and his hard work at practice really shows. This past week we worked to perfect our butterfly, and DJ was able to swim the 50 fly as one of his events for the first time! Madison is also a swimmer that is new to our team this year. She has been really working on her dives, turns, and starts which was apparent at the meet! She simply didn't just drop time in her events, but she also was able to finish all her races as strong as she started them.
Maglio has been swimming with the Sea Demons for many seasons and is a great asset to the team. Maglio is a fantastic leader and shares his passion for swimming with our younger/new swimmers. While swimming against the Mighty Krocs, Maglio dropped significant time in his backstroke and showed great sportsmanship by staying in the pool while his teammates and competitors were still swimming. Paulina is also a returner, but has shown tremendous growth in her abilities this season. She dropped time in all her events and was leading cheers at each end of the pool, making sure to support all her teammates.
We are so proud of our swimmers, and we are excited to continue this success as we move forward in the season.
Not only have we completed our first home meet of the season, but we also saw amazing sportsmanship and time drops from our team! We want to take a moment to really recognize how impressive it is to the coaches to see our swimmers shaking hands with their opponents and staying in the water until everyone has completed their races. Those actions reveal good sportsmanship as well as strong team unity.
The swimmers of the meet are: Corri, Ace, Aylin, and Jose. Corri not only dropped three seconds in her 25 fly, which she has been working on tirelessly in practice, but she also accidentally swam the event twice due to a confusion in the line up. Corri was a real trooper and did her best in both events! Aylin is a new swimmer to EASC, and she dropped an incredible 20 seconds in her 25 free. She has shown significant improvements in her stamina and also her technique over the last month!
Ace is one of our new swimmers who has been working tirelessly at practice. His work has really turned into improvements in the pool! During his 100 free, he dropped 7 seconds while also doing flip turns at each well without breathing into any of them! Jose, a new swimmer whose family has been on the team for some time, has been stepping up his game significantly. He dropped time in both of his events because he has been taking the drills we have been doing in practice to heart. By applying his techniques from practice into his races, he has showed incredible growth!
We are so proud of our team and look forward to more outstanding swims, continued sportsmanship, and greater improvements as the season progresses.
