Boys Varsity Swimming beats Carroll 139 – 34

The boys had a pretty good first meet at Carroll. Monday meets are usually not great. It was great to see the freshman and newcommers get some experience in a high school meet. Times were not great, but it is early in the season and their endurance needs improving. I am very proud of Janis Groeber. He is our exchange student and has improved a tremendous amount in a short time. I thought he was going to quit the first practice. He dropped over 3 seconds in the 50 free. Luke Abbott had three best times. He dropped over 2 sec in 50 Br and .5 in 50 Free. He also swam the 100 fly for the first time. Our divers looked great. Two years ago we had no boy divers. That made scoring tough giving up 13 points in some meets. This year Brady and Aiden are in their second year and we have Cameron Metcalf in his first year. I am impressed with how much Cameron has learned in three weeks. He broke 100 points in his first meet. Brady +11 and Aiden +18, crushed their best scores from last year. Zach Duke dropped 7 sec in 200 Free and .9 sec in 50 Free. Aiden Ousley had a fantastic first swim in the 200 IM. He is now #2 on the depth chart. He also dropped .5 in 50 Back and .8 in 100 Back. The Golden Goggle Award goes to Joel Loshnowsky. Joel has improved so much from his 8th grade year. He is working so hard in practice. He dropped 2.2 in 50 back, .9 in 100 Free, and 2.2 in 100 Back. Next meet is Thursday at home. I look for the boys to have much better times.

Boys Varsity Swimming beats Manchester Junior/Senior 141 – 36

We love swimming and diving at home. The boys looked so good last night and had so many best times. Janis -1.5 in 50 free and swam the 100 free twice for the first time. He looked pretty tired at the end of the night. Isaiah -3 sec in 50 free and did 100 free for first time. His start looked way better. Jarrod dropped 1.7 in 50 Fly and .2 in 50 Free. Luke -1.6 in 50 Breast, swam the 200 IM for the first time, and -3.6 in 100 Free. Brady had an amazing 5 out of 6 dives. He increased his PR by 19 points. He also dropped .9 in the 50 Free. P.J. -.2 in 50 free. Cameron +16 for his dive score. Drake had a great night. Dropped 6.8 sec in 200 Free, 13 sec in 500 Free, and 4 sec in 100 Free. Colton also had a great night. He dropped 2.1 in 50 Breast, .4 in 100 Breast, 1.7 in 100 Free to break a minute, and swam the 100 Butterfly for the first time. Sam looked amazing and swam so much faster than on Monday. He dropped 8 sec in 50 Fly and 9 sec in 100 Free. Zach dropped .7 in 100 Free. He is so close to breaking a minute. Joel has had a great start to his high school career. He dropped .8 in 50 Back, 4.2 in 100 Free and 4 sec in 100 Back. Aiden is swimming so well. We have been working on his backstroke kick. He dropped .4 in 50 Back and 3.6 in 200 IM. The Golden Goggle Award goes to Ryley Rodkey. He does not like the 200 IM and 100 Fly but I told him we need to find the best spot for him. He gave me all he had last night. He dropped 1.8 in 50 Fly, 2.3 in 200 IM, and 7 sec in 100 Fly. I am really happy with where we are at as a team and see the possiblilty for how good we could be in January. It all depends on how much they want it and how hard they work.
