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!

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.
