Buffalo Niagara Sports Commision Invite Recap
The Star Summer invite held at ECC June 21st to the 23rd was another great opportunity for the Titans to show what they’ve been working on. We had 62 athletes attend compiling numerous Best times, more NI Champ Cuts, and we ever saw kids swimming new events! This is truly amazing considering so many of these young athletes were focused on end of year activities and exams!
Bella Fucile and Milania Scarpace represented Level 1 at the meet this past weekend. They both did a great job and continued to drop time in their events! Milania swam best times in both her 50 back and 100 freestyle, and Bella swam a best time in the 50 free. Way to go!
Level 2 had 5 swimmers compete this past weekend in the STAR meet. They did a great job racing long course and challenging themselves to longer events! Shoutout to Joseph Tacca for swimming the 200 breaststroke! We have been working hard at stroke technique in practice and that hard work has paid off with no DQ’s for level 2 this weekend! Way to go!
Level 3 had 7 swimmers participate in the STAR meet this past weekend and they had a great time racing and cheering their teammates on. Shoutout to Isaac King, Yasmin Ramsey, Elise Muffoletto, and Ebon Zuckerburg for achieving best times! We have been working as a group to take what we are learning at practice and applying it to our races. Keep up the good work level 3!
Level 4 sent 11 Swimmers to the 3 day event pulling together 20 personal best times, 7 new events swam, 8 Champs cuts with only 1 DQ! So many of these swimmers come to practice regularly and their efforts showed in great swims all weekend!
Level 5 sent 8 swimmers to the meet this past weekend. Everyone did a fantastic job; as a level we had 22 new best times and zero DQs! We are excited to see everyone trying out new events, like 200s of stroke and longer freestyle races. Congrats to Heather Malkiewicz and Kerrington Clouser for doing awesome in the 400 free. Great job level 5!
Level 6 sent 6 swimmers to the meet, not a large number for this group but final exams seemed to take a president. These swimmers were amazing swimming to 14 personal bests, 3 new events, 16 Champs cuts and 2 DQs. New events like the 200 Fly, 200 Back, 100 Fly were done with ease by these fantastic swimmers!
Leve 7-8 sent 20 swimmers. It was nice to see more time drops in a meet that we did not rest for, that fell in the middle of exams and caused swimmer to miss practice leading up to the meet. Again great job continuing to race the way we practice. Lindsay DeBoth, Natalie Fritsch and Alex Switalski had an exceptional meet.
