Started off well... finished even better!
20 Lifetime Bests (at least... quick count)
14 out 18 swims faster than seed time
8 Night Swims
3 Relays Improvements
2 School Records!
Allie Lizars is on fire. That girl can't do anything but drop tons of time! All of Hope's swims are faster than her previous bests. Tasha pops her fastest relay split of the meet. Reingold keeps going lifetime bests - who cares that she was abroad last semester?! Charlotte breaks another record (1:54.11 200 Free). Drake gets back under 58 in the 100 back. Hanson drops 15 seconds in her 1000 and Bails dominates the whole swim (nearly going out in her 500 time from yesterday!). Lex drops 2 seconds off her seed time in the fly. Helen comes back from a fever and goes a lifetime best in the 100 fly. Amy Johnston... wow. She drops 2 seconds off her LTB and qualifies for a night swim by the skin of her teeth (24th in the 400). Then she comes back at night and drops another.... SIX! She moves up a place too. Fantastic.
I loved the 800 free relays the most. Both way outperformed what I was expecting... and really got me excited for tomorrow's swims. In our B relay Lex, Bailey, Allie, and Abigail destroyed their previous bests and danced their way all the way over to the warm down pool. Then Kara, Katelyn, Tato, and Charlotte jump in. Now, last year we had a stellar 800 free relay go 7:54.0, so I was hoping to get close to that again. Well these girls decided to go...
That's a B-Cut for our relay - a very important step for us - and nearly 6 seconds off the school record. Drake split 1:55.7 - right after her 100 back.
