Swimmer's of the Meet

On December 18 we braved the Columbus ice and headed to Cincinnati for an awesome IMX meet at the Mason Community Center.  We were extremely pleased with our swimmers fantastic performances  with just about everyone trying longer events for the first time.  Kudos to Katie, Nanami, Savannah, Jonathon, Andrew, Sebby, Thaine, Abby, Nathan, Ashley & Kaitlyn!  In the end we'd like to give extra recognition to two swimmers.

First Andrew Huang, age 8,  had remarkable performances in the 200 free (best by 13), 200 back (obtaining an 11-12 JO cut) and 400 IM.  His 200 back was negative split (second half faster than first), showing an incredible maturity for a youngster. And he nearly beat his best 100 back time on that last 100! Next, a huge shout out goes to Abigail Ng, age 13, who has really stepped up her training this year and it showed in a big way.  She dropped over 32 seconds in her three events starting her day with a very impressive 400 IM.  Congratulations Andrew & Abby…

Unpaid Meet Fees

We sent invoices earlier today to several families that have unpaid meet fees on their account. Most of those invoices should have included and explanation and did not.  Here is what everyone needs to know about meet fees.

Meet fees are billed through your Active account to the card you have on file about a week before each meet.  If your card does not work or you do not have a payment method set up then those fees will never get paid unless you do something.  You can view these fees online as early as 3-5 days before a meet at your active portal.  You then have several options that should occur BEFORE the meet. First, you can simply click on the invoice number and pay the bill though Active.  This will include an additional charge of 4.95%.  Two, you could write a check to Buckeye Swim Club for the meet fee amount and hand it in to any coach at practice.  Three, you can pay the invoice through quickbooks, this includes a $2 admin fee per meet.

Please make sure you check your swim por…

Congratulations Kaitlyn Sallows

Kaitlyn has been placed on the Ohio All Star team to compete in Indianapolis next weekend  against four other state all star teams.  To make this team she had to be one of the fastest four swimmers in her event from both the Ohio and Lake Erie LSC. Congratulations Kaitlyn!

January 7-8 Meet Weekend

Our 10-under swimmers were accepted into the UASC Triple Crown by the meet host.  Unfortunately, we (Coach Laurie) were slow getting our entries in and did not turn them exactly at the moment entries open.  There was a rush on entries and the meet was overbooked for 11-14 year olds. Thus our older swimmers were closed out and will not swim this meet.  We were accepted into a meet Saturday morning at Worthington.  Our 11-14 year olds will swim there!

Please look for more specific meet information next week, including warmup times for both meets.

Swimmer's of the Meet

Congratulations to all of our swimmers on a fantastic showing at the Bowling Green Holiday Invite.  We were very pleased with the swimmers preparation prior to the meet.  The swimmers were relaxed in the team area and shared a lot of smiles between races.  We had two swimmers set new team records at the meet. Andrew Huang captured the 25 free with a 14.01 and Kaitlyn Sallows shattered an 18 year old record in the 500 free with a 6:03.20!

Our first swimmer of the meet is Savannah Cornelius! Savannahswam best times in all of her events and dropped a whopping 10 seconds in the 50 breast!  She has worked hard not improving her technique which is really showing. Keep up the good work Savannah!

Our next swimmer of the meet is Piper Lorentz! Piper also swam best times in all of her events dropping 5.5 seconds per 100.  Piper has come a long way since the beginning of the year and shows huge leaps forward every week.  Way to go Piper!

Our last swimmer of the meet recognition goes to Sebby Mar…
