Swim Team Update - Week of 2/10/20

Good evening everyone,

Fantastic job at the sectional meet on Saturday. The boys team placed 3rd of 14 and the girls 4th of 14! Swimmers combined to set 66 season-best times with 17 swimmers advancing on to the district meet this Saturday at CSU! I can't say enough about how proud we are of everyone's hard work to reach these results. It has been a fantastic championship season that started with tremendous time drops two weeks ago at Canton Champs! Now we are ready to keep the success building with the district meet! Please take a look at the reminders, especially for sectional swimmers and district qualifiers about the last chance sprints tomorrow after school. Results, top times, and our schedule for the week are included below.



Qualifiers:
Suzanne Nedlik: Medley Relay, 200 IM, 100 Fly, 400 Free Relay
Erin Farmer: Medley Relay, 50 Free, 200 Free Relay
Mallory Dondorfer: Medley Relay, 200 IM, 100 Back, 400 Free Relay

Andy Gravius: 200 Free Relay, 400 Free Relay
Eric Thompson: 400 Free Relay

Reminders:
1.) We will have touchpads in tomorrow for a last chance sprint meet of sorts at the start of practice. Anyone that swam sectionals and would like to get a time is encouraged to come and do any races of your choosing (50s and 100s). District qualifiers, this will be your sprint portion of practice for tomorrow. Regular practice will follow. Please note the flex/extended time for practice tomorrow. We estimated long; we may finish early depending on how long the sprint portion takes.
2.) Relays are tentative and may change based on performance and attendance during the week.
3.) Please try your hardest to make each day of practice on taper. We want to conserve energy as we drop yards and intensity of our final practices to set us up for the best possible time drops at our respective championship meets. This is a scheduled controlled drop, with each day having an impact. One missed day can dramatically throw off the results. Try to avoid activities that take a lot of energy or might lead to injury, especially lifting, etc. Avoid junk food, go with carbs before we swim. Last, make sure you are getting a good night of sleep. Remember that taper works as well as what you put into it!

Schedule:
Mon 2/10 PM – Last Chance Sprints at LH Wellness 2:45 to 4:00 pm
Mon 2/10 PM – Swim practice at LH Wellness 2:45-6:00 pm
Tue 2/11 PM – Swim practice at LH Wellness 2:45-5:00 pm

Swim Team Update - Week of 1/27/20


Good evening everyone,

Great job at our meet on Saturday! Girls picked up wins against Medina, Elyria, and Buckeye to improve to 11-4 on the season. Boys defeated Elyria and came up just short to Medina to finish the season 9-5. A very nice gesture by Medina to recognize all seniors in the final dual meet of their careers. Certainly a happy/sad moment as we reflect on the last regular season meet for our senior class and their futures! You have had such great high school careers and we wish you the best! Now we have just one final push with our post-season meets. Let's have a great taper and make sure each lap from practice this season has set us up for our fastest swimming.





Reminders:
1.) Please try your hardest to make each day of practice on taper. We want to conserve energy as we drop yards and intensity of our final practices to set us up for the best possible time drops at our respective championship meets. This is a scheduled controlled drop, with each day having an impact. Try to avoid activities that take a lot of energy or might lead to injury, especially lifting, etc. Avoid junk food, go with carbs before we swim. Last, make sure you are getting a good night of sleep.
2.) For practice absences, please send us a quick email with date and reason (doc appointment, family emergency, sick, sport, etc.) so that we can update attendance. Remember that missed practices should be made up, and you have two options to meet your attendance requirement for each day! A giant thank you to those of you that have been on track with this!
3.) We still have a few super bowl squares to sell for the team fundraiser. If you would like to purchase, please email a member of the boosters or myself. Squares are 10$. Payouts are by 1st, 2nd, 3rd quarter, and end of the game.
