Swim Team Update - Week of 2-4-19

Good evening everyone,

Fantastic work at Champs this past weekend! So proud of the team effort! Cardinal swimmers achieved 45 season best times! 6 swimmers and 3 relays reached the podium with top 8 finishes, this out of 400 swimmers in the meet! Results and practice schedule for the week included below.

Results: Mentor vs Champs

Reminders:
1.) It is critically important to be at practice each day during taper. Our goal is a controlled drop of both yardage and intensity by day. One missed day can dramatically throw off the results. Try to eat healthy and avoid junk food. Try to get as much rest as possible including a good night of sleep. Last year we saw 53 of 56 swims at sectionals be season and/or lifetime bests. Remember that taper works as well as what you put into it!

Schedule:
Mon 2/4 PM – Swim practice at LH Wellness 2:45-5:00pm
Tue 2/5 PM – Swim practice at LH Wellness 2:45-5:00pm
Wed 2/6 PM – Swim practice at LH Wellness 2:45-5:00pm
Thu 2/7 PM – Swim practice at LH Wellness 2:45-5:00pm

Fri 2/8 PM – Swim practice at LH Wellness 2:45-5:00pm
Sat 2/9 AM – Meet against Sectionals at Spire. Bus TBA. Start 11:35am.

Have a great week and Go Cards!

Swim Team Update - Week of 1-28-19

Good evening everyone,

Great way to end the season! Both teams finished with wins over South and Euclid on Saturday! Girls season record ends at 11-4 and boys 10-5! Champs will be held Saturday for swimmers that have already been tapering. Swimmers in Sectionals (Sat Feb 9th) have a full week of practice. Lineups with exact events will be posted during the week. Results from this past week are linked below.

Results: Mentor vs Chardon and Brunswick
Results: Mentor vs South and Euclid
Top Times: Mentor Cardinals 2018-2019

Reminders:
1.) It is critically important to be at practice each day during taper. Our goal is a controlled drop of both yardage and intensity by day. One missed day can dramatically throw off the results.

2.) This will be the last week of any morning/makeup practices. Nobody should be doing doubles at this point because of the taper.
