Swimmers of the Week

This past weekend the team placed second at Ken Caryl, a meet with with over 25 teams! There were great swims from all age groups and it really took a team effort to place so well. So nows the time for the swimmer of the week announcement:

Amanda Ballard!
Amanda killed it this weekend, placing 1st in the 200 and 100 free and 2nd in the 50 free, taking home the high point award for the 15-18 girls division. She anchored the winning medley relay (with Kaylyn Schull, Sydni Sich, and Ianna Debrunner) as well as the winning free relay (with Tess Hofstra, Sydni, and Ianna). Amanda continued her streak of dominating sprint freestyle races at major meets. Congrats Amanda! 
Alex Granquist, Ben Hofstra, Quinn Meinert, Andrew Penn
This past weekend these boys won both the Medley and the Free relay, crushing the Ken Caryl and the GMST records. Their free relay was a 1:51, beating the team record by over 5 seconds and the Ken Caryl record by 4 seconds. They all swam well in their individual events as well, racking up a good amount of points to help the team place 2nd. Quinn placed 3rd in the breaststroke, Andrew 2nd in the backstroke, Alex 2nd in the fly, and Ben 2nd in the 400. Well done guys! 
There is no meet this weekend, but let’s keep up the good work in practice. Keep an eye out for Gator Week…
