Novice Meet – Crazy Hat

Marin had great streamlines and underwater starts. She swam with DPS for every race and her technique looked awesome.

Jeremy had an awesome pullout and turn for his 50 BR. In his 200 FR he was leading his heat until he stopped after 150! The guy in second was able to get ahead by about 15m, but Jeremy pulled ahead and came in first in his heat and still took off around 55 sec.

Lucas did great and got all best times in all of his events and was super happy with himself!!

Kiana swam great and dominated the 25s. She had great finishes. Will definitely be putting her in some longer races at the next meet.

Andrew did an awesome job and took off time in each of his races!
