Waves February Frost
Well, our first away meet from 2019 is in the books. We had 10 strong swimmers brave the elements on Saturday and 6 on Sunday with a little better weather.
On Saturday, Jack, Zoe, Audrey, Ellie, Estelle, Cece, Ella, Aidan, and Hudson tried to stay warm between their swims. Jack tried 2 new events and took 8 seconds off his 100 Free time! Zoe had a very impressive 500 Free at the end of the meet even being as cold as she was! Audrey had a strong showing in her 3 events and took an amazing 4 seconds off her 100 Back. Ellie also was strong in her 4 events and got some best times in her 200 Free & 100 Back. Estelle looked good, but just a little off on her times. Cece had a big drop on her 100 Fly that not only was 15 seconds but managed to get the team record of 1:19.24. Ella also had strong three events but was just a little off on time. Aidan took an amazing 7 ½ seconds off his 200 Free and another 2 seconds off his 100 Breast. And Hudson took a second off his 200 free even with missing at least two walls!
Sunday was also cold, but with the sun out for most of the day, it was not as bad. Zoe, Estelle, Cece, Ella, and Hudson were joined by Wes to swim on Sunday. Zoe had another 3 great swims on Sunday and really worked on her tempo of her swims. Estelle took the day easy, but still had a good swim for her 50 Free. Cece not only got 3 best times on Sunday, but she got another team record in the 100 Breast. Ella was showing off on Sunday and had a great 200 IM and an even better 200 Breast taking off almost 5 seconds. Hudson had 3 strong events again but took off 5 seconds in his 200 Back. Wes also got all best times and looked great in all his events. The biggest 11 seconds in the 200 IM, not far behind the 6 seconds in the 100 Fly!
The team as a whole swam 47 events. 21 out of the 47 were best times. So about 45% best times. As I write it, it sounds low, but the swimming was anything but. Hopefully the next meet will have a little better weather!
