STAR Kick off recap

Posted by Scott Vanderzell on Jun 07 2019 at 07:04AM PDT

The Titans attended the Star Kick off Meet the weekend of May 31st to June 2nd and again did us proud. We had 67 swimmers at the meet, a big drop off from the Natalie Lewis meet but these swimmers came to swim! We were excited to see so many new Long Course events swam and at such a great level we all have much to be impressed with.

Level 1 had two swimmers at the meet this weekend! Josie Lyons swam the 50 freestyle and Bella Fucile swam the 50 freestyle, 50 backstroke, and the 100 backstroke! We are so happy to see our level 1 swimmers braving long course and are so proud of them! Way to go girls!

Level 2 had four swimmers attend the star meet this past weekend and they did a great job braving the cold pool and trying out new events! Emilia DiCamillo scored a best time in her 50 free and Joseph Tacca was brave enough to attempt the 200 freestyle! Way to go level 2!

Level 3 had 11 swimmers compete in the STAR meet and they did a great job representing what we have been working on in practice! We had 22 best times ever all from Anne Boscarino, Keira Curvin, Nina DiCamillo, Owen Scibetta, John Stancliff, Katherine Stancliff, Kylie Szaflarski, and Ebon Zuckerberg. Shout out to Owen Scibetta for cheering on his teammates the whole meet and having a great attitude! Keep up the good work level 3!

Level 4 sent 13 swimmers to the meet achieving 47 new best times, 24 new swims with only 1 DQ! New swims ranged from 100 fly to 400 free to 200s of stroke and they did great! We have had a few weeks to continue to focus on improving technique and stamina and it we clear; hard work pays off! Even with limited practices due to the holiday weekend these swimmers came focused and ready to shine! Great efforts by all!

We had 7 swimmers represent level 5 at the meet this past weekend. We are very happy to see a lot of progress since the last meet a few weeks ago! As a level we saw 20 new best times, 9 championship cut times, and 0 DQs – which shows that we are starting to focus on the important details of our races. We are looking forward to continuing to improve this summer. Awesome job level 5!

Send 6 swimmers to the meet and this small group put together big swims! 20 new personal best times, 6 new events and zero DQs! Congratulations to Ramy Ben Jaballah who completed his IMX events for the 13-14 age group swimming 400 IM 200 fly, back and breaststroke! We had Alaina Roberts and Haley Griffin also swim 400 IM for the first time and at a high level! Lilly Hauser Howells, Bri Lorenz and Chloe Marcyan all pitched in with great efforts and attitudes all weekend! Thanks to all who pitched in on relays and supported their teammates during the meet.

Level 7-8 sent 17 swimmers from the group and had nearly 60 personal best times. Sam Bryk achieved her Championship time in the 100 breast for the first time and Alex Switalski also achieved her Championship time in the 1500 in her first attempt in that event. Lindsay Deboth and Natalie Fritsch had personal best in all their events this weekend. Again it is great to see the swimmers build on what we are doing in practice and apply to the meets.
