Titans 2019 Holiday Meet Results
The Titans Holiday Swim for Time was another great opportunity for the team to get together, swim fast, and have some fun at the pool! We basically ran a team time trial with 112 Titans filling the lanes at the meet. We were pleasantly surprised by all the great swims after several days off for most of the team.
Seven swimmers from Level 1 attended the Holiday Meet. Nora Bronson, Charlotte Nudell, Lucia Santiago, and Gretchen Cenczyk all swam an awesome 50 Freestyle and 50 Backstroke. Rhys Engelhardt and Derek Hufnagel both swam fast 50 Freestyles. Josie Lyons swam the 50 Breaststroke in addition to the 50 Freestyle and 50 Backstroke. Josie also dropped several seconds in her 50 Freestyle and 50 Backstroke! Great job to everyone!
Congratulations to all of the Level 2 swimmers that joined us for the Holiday Meet and posted some great swims. We love seeing our swimmers push themselves outside of their comfort zone, especially racing 100-yard events, different strokes, and IM. Proud of everyone who swam for taking the time out of their holiday break to be at the pool.
This past weekend the titans hosted our annual holiday meet. The swimmers had a lot of fun and swam some great races. Level 3 had 14 swimmers at the meet and they came out with 21 silver cut times, 3 gold cut times, and 25 new best times! There were a lot of new events swam and strokes raced for the first time. As a level we are always working on becoming more confident in trying new events or strokes in competition as well as focusing on technique so we can reach our goal of no DQ’s. Great job level 3, keep up the good work!
Level 4 had 17 swimmers attend the meet pulling together to swim some amazing short course meters performances. 19 Niagara Championship Cut Times, 23 Niagara Championship Qualifier cut times, and some smart swimming by all in attendance. We are happy to see so many of these young swimmers get together and support each other before, during, and after their swims.
Level 5 had a great Holiday Meet! We were so impressed with each of the 12 swimmers representing the level. We had a total of 21 silver cut times, 9 gold cut times and 30 new personal best times. From 50s and 100s of stroke to the 200 IM and 400 Free, level 5 focused on working hard and swimming fast. We have increased our intensity at practice and emphasized our break outs, turns and finishes so we have the ability to race smart. Congratulations on an awesome meet level 5, keep up the great work!
Level 6 had 16 amazing athletes at the holiday swim. They braved events from the 50 to the 400 & everything in between. They really put together some awesome efforts, netting 22 Niagara Championship Cuts, 37 Championship Qualifier Cuts, and a bunch of cookies eaten! This group was fun to watch using each other every swim! Great Job Titans!
Level 7-8 had a great meet. My hope going into this meet was that the kids would just focus on racing smart, efficiently and use the thing we were working on in practice rather than worrying about the time. Let the time come as we swim smart. I think for the most part we did that. We had a number on new championship cut times, we swimmers improve on off events and get close to Championship time in those events. I am very happy with the progress all the kids are making at this point and I look forward to the next couple of month.
