Swimmers of the Meet


Congratulations to our Swimmers of the Meet from our November Meets!  We recognize one girl and one boy swimmer of the meet based on time drops, attitude and the work the swimmer put in leading up to the meet.  At our first two meets our swimmers that achieved this honor all trained with us this summer and were consistent this fall in their efforts to improve.

KCST John Lunsford Memorial
We have a brother-sister duo to honor from this meet.  Congratulations to Macey & Chase Swearingen!
Chase went 8 for 8 in best times and completed his first 100 IM & 200 free.  He had 3 third place finishes and a win in the 25 back.  Chase has worked hard to improve his stroke length which has really helped him in all of his races. Congrats Chase!
Macey also went 8 for 8 in best times and started the meet with a stellar 200 IM, dropping 7 seconds and finishing 2nd.  Macey has been working hard at improving her timing in her strokes and ability to use streamlining to her advantage.  She proves over and over that technique beats brawn any day.  Congrats Macey!

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.
