Posted by Scott Vanderzell on May 24 2019 at 07:48AM PDT

The Natalie Lewis Long Course Invite was an amazing meet! The team really showed up in force with 128 Titans there taking advantage of the first LC opportunity. We played host to 627 athletes from 18 teams! Thanks to all who stepped up and helped us pull off an amazing weekend of fast swimming. A special thanks to the entire Lewis family they were there in support of the meet selling the wonderful Natalie inspired meet apparel, donating our bell ringers and just continuing to be an inspiration to us all as to what it means to be a positive force in the world! We are blessed to have them in our lives! Several families stepped up and volunteered above and beyond their minimum and we appreciate it immensely!

Level 1 did a great job at the Natalie Lewis Spring Invite! Bella Fucile, Josie Lyons, and Milania Scarpace all braved the long course meter pool and we are so proud of them! Way to go level 1!

Level 2 had 8 swimmers participate this past weekend in the Natalie Lewis meet. With most of them competing in Long course for the first time they did an amazing job. As a group we have been working on all four of the strokes and our confidence to attempt longer events. Shoutout to Charlie Burt, Hannah Engelhardt, James Lyons, and Abigail Sule for challenging themselves to compete in a 100 race! Way to go level 2!

Level 3 had an awesome turnout with 20 kids participating in the Natalie Lewis Spring Invite. They have all worked very hard to prepare for this meet and it definitely paid off. We saw 31 best times for our returning swimmers and great new times for the swimmers competing in their first long course season. Shoutout to Anne Boscarino. Keira Curvin, Evelyn Embow, Isaac King, Elise Muffoletto, and Owen Scibetta for trying out a 200 long course event, way to go! We also had a few championship cut times from Andre Charlier, Isaac King, and Owen Scibetta, nice job boys! Over all it was a great meet to kick off the long course season and we are excited to see where they will progress from here!

Level 4 had 21 amazing swimmers in the meet. They pulled together an out of this world 107 personal best times, 12 Niagara LSC Championship cut times, 44 new events, and only 4 DQ’s. Nice work! Many swam LC for the first time and did amazing in the new and exciting pool length! Congratulations to all you earned everything at this meet!

Level 5 sent 16 swimmers to the meet this past weekend. We have been working very hard at practice over the last few weeks, especially with a focus on stroke techniques, breakouts and finishes. Everyone did a great job with taking what we have been doing at practice and applying it to their races. All of our hard work has started to pay off as we were able to see a total of 66 best times just from our level! We were also excited to see everyone getting more comfortable swimming longer distance races and trying new events! Congratulations to Juliet Bewlay, Kerrington Clouser, Lucy Lyons, Campbell Murphy, Meredith Roberts and Lila Roeser for qualifying for the Niagara Championship meet. This was a great meet to start off our long course season and we are very excited to watch everyone continue to improve. Awesome job level 5!

Level 6 had 20 superstars at the meet combining for an impressive 81 new best times, 25 Niagara LSC Championship cuts, 24 new events and zero DQ’s! Amazing focus. We had a short time after break to get ready for this but they really pulled together some impressive early season swims! We were proud of all their efforts and all the help on our relays!

Level 7-8 started out the season with some great swimming with nearly 80 personal best and more Championship Qualifying time. With the season just beginning and the short training schedule the group stepped up showing what we have been working on, the DPS, which is very important to swimming especially LC racing. We were also able to get some LC racing experience and I look forward to the rest of the long Course season.
