The team competed at Regionals last month at Ohio State and had quite the amazing meet.  Beyond winning events  and moving on to JO’S, it’s really important to us that all of our swimmers are continuing to show improvements.  And wow! did they ever!!

Personal Best Sweeps
The following swimmers had all best times, which is quite a huge accomplishment! Especially considering many of these kiddos swam over a dozen events in three days between prelims and finals.
Leah Adkins, Samantha Blackburn, Jonathan Diakogeorgiou, Amanda Jones, Tyler Klein, Justin Li, Thaine Nederveld, Aubrey Pritchard, Nathan Reynolds, Kaitlyn Sallows, Kayla Simashkevich, Will Stringer and competing in their first meets Karen Yang and Toby Halker!!

Bests less One (or Two)
