A little recap to the Moses Lake shootout...
Welcome to the team Bridget R., Nikko E., Aidan P. And Mason U. Happy to have you join us!
Started off with butterfly:
Mason and Nikko did a great job getting their bottoms up while their arms were long!! Beckett had nice long arms, Karrin got her head down quickly and Linnea held a great tempo. Mady also had a nice tempo while Kai wowed us with a no breather finish! Way to drive for the wall holding your breath Kai!! Luke B and Cody S showed solid strength while Ashley P dropped 9 seconds in her race! Wowzers! Neomi held a great tempo and had a no breath finish too, Christian had a great quick turn dropping 5 seconds in his fly. And all that, was the theme for our Cats all day!
Backstroke next and a lesson in how to from Erwin. Great streamline and fast arms got him to the wall first, Beatrice showed us a great bodyline(no wiggles) and good tempo too, Kai had a great turn, timed very well, and a strong finish while Christian had another fast turn in the back spinning from back to stomach quickly and getting a good blast off the wall.
Some notable breaststroke moments came from Beatrice and Sydney, side by side one showing us an aggressive tempo and the other a beautiful glide! Great finish by Aidan P who sped up into the wall and Titus showed us strong pull can get you a 6 second time drop! Cathy and Bryn had a good race challenging each other to both swim best times. Good job and nice racing girls!
Finally the free :
Mason and Nikko had good swims while Aiden almost hung tight to Erwin. Erwin pulled away keeping his tempo and kick going to the finish. Well done young men!!
Linnea had a tight race with Lane 5 swimming hard into the finish making a milestone (broke :30 for the first time!) in her 50 free. Colin and Alex duked it out side by side showing great tempo.
