Results from Maconaquah for Tuesday, December 6th
The boys had a tough night at Oak Hill. Oak Hill’s team is half seniors. They were just better and deeper than us. We swam well and had several best times. Jesse Santiago dropped over a second in the 100 Breaststroke and 2.7 in the 100 Free. Coen Thompson dropped a sec in the 50 back. Luke Abbott continues to improve every meet. He dropped 7 sec in the 50 Breast and 10 sec in the 100 Free. P.J. Higgins dropped 1 sec in the 200 IM. Garrett McManus dropped .3 in 50 Free and .8 in 100 Free. Cole Nye had a great race in the 100 Breast dropping .7 and 1 sec in the 100 Fly. Jonathan O’Connor dropped 1.2 in 50 Back. Ryley Rodkey dropped 5.2 in 200 IM. Victor Riker had much better turns in the 200 Free and 100 Backstroke dropping 6 and 17 sec. The Golden Goggle Award goes to Drake Samuel. This is Drake’s first year swimming. I am so happy with his hard work in practice and ability to be coached. Drake dropped 12 sec in the 50 Fly from when we timed it in practice two weeks ago and another 25 sec in the 500 Free. That is an improvement of over a minute from his first meet a week ago. He had much better turns and streamline last night. We have another tough meet against Tippy Valley on Thursday.
