The following are the swimmers of the week for the weeks of 6/13 and 6/20.
Week of 6/13 – Eden
Eden is an excellent swimmer, but the quality that impresses the coaches the most, is Eden’s commitment to technique and constant improvement. She always comes to the coaches tent after her races and asks clarifying questions during sets, then immediately puts suggestions into practice. She also makes suggestions for practice that she thinks will be the most beneficial for herself and her teammates, making her extremely coachable and an asset to the team. Great work Eden!
Week of 6/20 – Brogan
Brogan was one of the few swimmers this week to participate in all 3 meets, swimming a large collection of events. Brogan is committed to improving his stroke and goes after qualifying times by setting goals before every race. No matter how his race goes, Brogan always has a positive attitude after his race, asking about what can be improved, setting new goals, or reflecting on what went well.
Keep it up Brogan!
Week of 6/13 – Emerson S
Emerson came to practice this week with an enthusiasm for swimming and a desire to become better. He worked hard to meet the times to qualify for Ken Caryl, demonstrated by his commitment to doing his best in every set and listening closely to the coaches. He is a good athlete and a great leader!
Well done Emerson!
Week of 6/20 – Allison
Allison is such a joy to have on the team. She is a hard worker, already a strong swimmer and yet still pushes herself to be the best she can be. Allison demonstrates her commitment by going to stroke clinics, implementing the tips and technique in the following practices, then signing up for those races in the next meet. Her tenacity shines through every time she gets up to race, making her an irreplaceable asset to the team.
Nice job Allison!
Week of 6/13 – Kaia
Kaia came to practice this week with a great attitude and a desire to improve. Kaia was always the first to listen in her lane and she helped her lane mates understand the sets and improve their stakes along with her. Kaia brings a positive attitude to practice every day that makes the 9am practice a joy!
Stay cool Kaia!
Week of 6/20 – Nolan
Nolan was another one of our swimmers to swim at all 3 meets this week. Nolan will take on any challenge that is thrown at him. He swam 3 difficult events at the intrasquad, raced hard at Ken Caryl, and ended up placing 1st at the Pentathlon. Nolan is an asset that any coach would be happy to have because he is so versatile and willing to step up for the team.
Excellent job Nolan!
