We’re back! So in the past couple of months, here’s what’s been going on:
NEWMAC Swimming and Diving Championships were this past weekend, and our team had an incredible meet. Two of our divers placed in the finals for both 1-meter and 3-meter, and one even earned a NCAA national qualifying score! We will find out soon if she has been selected to compete. Our swimmers turned in 91% season best times and the team took 8th place overall. With three days of racing, it was a long meet, but we all had a great time and we’re looking forward to doing even better next year.
Also at the meet, we had the great pleasure of meeting two other collegiate swimmers training to swim the Channel this coming august. MIT Juniors Qing Li and Sydney Giblin will be swimming on the second Neap tide, just after our planned crossing. Both Sydney and Qing had an excellent conference meet, and we had a wonderful time cheering them on.
Since the Championship meet ended, we are taking some time off from swimming to recover and catch up on some sleep. However, we intend to pick up unofficial training soon and officially start training for the Channel after Spring Break.
