Our swim coach Phil Martin, is sharing with us last week’s highlights. Congratulations to our new record holders and to all their outstanding teammates!
“We have a new record holder in ALL our Girls Diving Events. Esther Dansinger performed 11 dives in Friday’s competition breaking the 6-Dive record by 20 points with a score of 275.40. Esther’s new 11 dive record (494.925) bested the old mark by 140 points. Wowsers.
Dan and Alex Chan each had a great race in the 100 free. The brother’s each marked personal bests.
Alexandria Kuo dropped 7 seconds in the 500 free. Way to go Alex!
Ryan Kam made his debut in the 500 and swam a fun-to-watch 5:35. After he went out in that first 150 we all held our breath waiting for him to run out of gas, but Ryan held on strong posting a 105 in his final 100.
Maya Hernandez drops 2 in the 100 breaststroke with a 115. Maya and Kelly Cheng also brought the spirit rallying the team from behind the lane. Go captains!
Eyal Tamir sub 1minute in the 100 free! Barriers Broken.
Alex Zheng with a 1:14 100 breast! How to make the most of that race and earn another shot at swimming it.
Great 1-2 finish from Elisabeth Nesta and Claire Hooper in the 200 posting a 2:02 and 2:03’s. The record for the 2Free is 2:00.38. REACHABLE!
This is the first time in 10 years I have seen all 3 participants in the 100 free go sub 1:00! Claire Hooper, Zoe Zalkind and Jada Green with a 56,58,58 times. That 3:48 record in the 400 Free Relay doesn’t stand a chance this year.
Diver Relays!! Zach Greenberg, Will Lavey, and Kaity Shaughnessy shine as they step in to do some swimming. Zach posted a 26, Will a 28 and Kaity a 29! Kaity, you might find yourself in more of those if it’s alright with you?!? I guess Topher’s 23 was ok too.
Anna Kuo is a GREAT Teammate. ‘I’ll switch with you if you’d like”. “I’ll swim that”. ” You can do it”. That is the attitude you show up with. I can and will do whatever it takes to compete. There is no race that you can’t take on. “
