January Swimmers of the Meet

Wow! What a month of great swimming from all of our Buckeyes.  It has been very difficult to narrow down the swimmers of the meet recipients this month.  We had a lot of fantastic swimming with quite a few swimmers hitting all best times at their meets.

Swimmers hitting all best times this month: Leah Adkins, Sophia Arnold, Nanami Campbell, Samantha Blackburn,  Elena Benz, Eddie Campion, Jonathan Diakogeorgiou, Lily Hashes, Andrew Huang, Amanda Jones, Samantha Jones, Tyler Klein, Owen Lewis, Thaine Nederveld, Abby Ng, Aubrey Pritchard, Kaitlyn Sallows, Ashley Sallows, Jack Secrest, Ella Seelandt, Sydney Seelandt, Evan Simashkevich, Kayla Simashkevich, Will Stringer,  Brody Van Frayen & Kevin Zhang.

Special recognition to Kaitlyn Sallows and Andrew Huang, both of whom are ripping apart our record board this season.  Additionally Kaitlyn is currently  ranked amongst the fastest 75 ten year old girls in the US in her best events and Andrew is ranked the fastest 8 year old boy in the US and top 10 in backstroke for 9-under boys.

Our swimmers of the meet for January are;
Jonathan Diakogeorgiou, age 12, had a huge meet to kick off January at the quad meet.  With three best  times and big drops in the back and breast, Jonathan has set himself up well to end the season strong.  Way to go JD!!
Sydney Seelandt, age 7, had a breakthrough meet at the UASC Triple Crown.  Sydney showed off all of her concentration at practice of late with big long strokes and huge time drops.  In all she dropped over 40 seconds! Congratulations Sydney!!
Leah Adkins, age 12, had a great Kelly German meet.  She swam three new events and dropped over 22 seconds in her other three events.  She has made tremendous strides this year as a newcomer to our sport.  Congratulations Leah!!
Jacy Mox, age 14, had a big Kelly German meet with 5 best times and four final swims. Jacy has been quietly improving her strokes and has really stepped up her commitment to practice.  In all Jacy dropped over 14 seconds. WTG Jacy!!
Jack Secrest, age 12, swam to all beat times at Kelly German. Jack broke 30 seconds for the first time in the 50 free and finaled in all three backstroke events.  Jack has been making steady improvement in his training and technique, all while pushing his lane mates to work harder. In all Jack dropped over 15 seconds. Congratulations Jack!!

Team T-shirt Orders

Parents you may order a t-shirt for yourself by reply email with your size.  They are $10 for parents (we already have swimmers sizes and there is no charge for swimmers tees) So! Yours truly has finally gotten it together and figured out a t-shirt for the season.  I was having extreme difficulty settling on something that captured how I felt about all the greatness going on in our program and the amazing loyalty we have from our families.  Finally we have something - it is at the printer and should be to us in a week or so.  They will not begin printing until next week, so parents can order shirts (kids get them as part of your fees).  Just let me know what size you want, payment is due to the boosters on receipt of the shirt.  This is a white 100% cotton pre-shrunk t-shirt with "Buckeye Proud" on the back and our team logo on the front left chest.   Orders are due Tuesday morning.
