What a great weekend of swimming out in the Finger Lakes! The 28 Titans that traveled to Ithaca represented the team exceptionally well! We had swimmers from Levels 3, 4, 5, & 6 all pull together for a fantastic 12 and under Short Course Championship Meet! 129 best times, 64 top 20 finishes, 3 Eastern Zone Championship Cuts, some truly impressive relays and cheering!

Saturday was the first day of prelims and finals with the top 18 getting the chance to swim at night. This group came ready to swim in the morning and did a fantastic job with another round of amazing relays and individual swims. Beginning the meet with relays gave them the opportunity to get up and moving right away! We saw fantastic racing and those swimmers that really paid attention to the starts and finishes wining those close races! Brynn Muffoletto tied for an alternate position and had the experience of a SWIM OFF! She not only won but crushed her personal best time in the 50 back! So many great swims, it was a true gift to watch! At finals we saw great swims get even better with 21 swims, with everyone swimming better than their best before the meet, and a Niagara LSC Champion Grace Griffin in the 50 Breast!

Another great display of focus with some amazing racing and finishes! We qualified for 21 swims at finals, had amazing efforts in all the relays and kept on having fun! Finals provided the final opportunity to shine at night! We put in a great final effort pulling swims that revealed these swimmers toughness!
