Recently, I was trying to do some work on my iPad that required flash.  Through some trial and error and googling, I found the Puffin browser.  Not only does it support flash, it works with the Active portal!  So, if you're in need of a better way to access your portal on your mobile device, I highly recommend this browser.

March Competition Highlights

2017 Auburn Classic
In early March our high school swimmers traveled to Auburn, Alabama for the Auburn Classic.  It was an interesting trip with an over-booked hotel (the swimmers adapted better than the coach). Our swimmers (Bobbi, Elizabeth, Emma, Chris, Jeremy, Logan, Stephen) all had great swims and all swimmers made finals!  We had several break-out swims and highlights:  Elizabeth Intihar and Stephen Sabharwal both achieved a “Magic Minute” swim in the 100 butterfly!  Best times were the rule of the meet with 81% of swims being life-time bests for the girls and 89% for the boys (86% combined). Emma Secrest placed 2nd in the 400 IM (which she’d only swim one other time) and the 200 Back.  Bobbi Indest was …

In a surprise move, a former Olympic star is coming out of retirement (again) and moving to Buckeye Swim Club.  In making this decision, the star feels that he left competition too soon and has more to offer the sport.  When asked why Columbus, he stated that he is tired of the consistently beautiful days in Arizona and is looking forward to the unpredictable mess of Ohio weather.  Furthermore, he believes he has gone as far as he can with his life long coach and is looking forward to training under the sharp wit and creative style that Coach Lew offers.

When asked whether his family had a part in the decision, he declared ‘absolutely!’  We have been very disappointed that our son learned to walk before the butterfly.  We are looking forward to placing him with Coach Karr.  It is our hope that her expert coaching will get him to the Olympics while I am still able to compete.  We dream of the day that father and son can swim in the same Olympics.  My wife is really looking forward to w…
