Team Report – Barrie Aquafest

November 1-3, Barrie – We recently had an early mid-point meet in Barrie featuring many “second swims”…where the Top 8 or Top 16 made in to the Finals at night, and we had many solid swims. This was not a full shave-and taper meet with full rest benefits, but it sure did give some insight as to who is on the move, who needs core aerobic work, and who really needs to work on technical components of strokes, starts and turns. While we did not have high expectations for the meet, we did have several swimmers step up and really come through. In the evening, in particular, we had great success swimming faster in the Finals than we did in the preliminaries. For some, it was a career-first at swimming finals, and the results were very impressive. In alphabetical order, here are result highlights!

Uxbridge, October 27, 2013 – Another great meet with some impressive results. A ton of top 3 finishes for our team was scary indeed…well at least for the other teams! One of the criteria that we judge a successful meet on beyond a super fun time, PB’s and top 3 finishes is the amount of DQ’s we are able to avoid. With so many new and young racers we expect our fair share but we walked away with next to none in the DQ column.  Nice work all.
