Announcements for Week of 7/2
Good Morning Sea Raider Families!
A huge shout out to all of the swimmers and parents who were at yesterday's swim meet. The first meet was a success both in the pool and on deck. Thank you to all of the parents who jumped in to help with the many roles that need to be filled to run a swim meet. We can't do it without you; our team is so lucky to have a wonderful group of people to help!! A special thank you to Michelle Halley, Erin and Tim Daniels who helped organize the meet and made everything run smoothly!
I am so proud of all our swimmers; 47% of our swims yesterday were BEST times! A few special shout outs to swimmers who dropped more then 10 seconds off their seed times yesterday! Parker Braydick: 11.02sec in freestyle, Elsa Frohlich: 10.61sec in backstroke, Baheer Jalali 17.8sec in backstroke, Massimo Mannino 30.28sec in backstroke!!!, Mae Roskey 13.72sec in breaststroke, Norah Kaiser 10.53sec IM, Luke Hineman 11.45sec IM, Michael LaFratta 20.11sec IM!!! AMAZING!!
Many swimmers dropped between 2-5seconds per race which is INCREDIBLE! Keep up the fast swimming in the pool! All of that cheering from the pool deck motivated our swimmers in the pool. Results will be posted this week online.
