Victoria “racer” Wrobleski sliced off time from her 50, 100, and 5 seconds from her 200 breast in a super swim (41.98)(130.33)(307.46).
James “stormin” Stanco took on his first 200 breast racing to a strong first swim with all bests )21.78)(48.62)(145.00)(339.72).
Natalie “jump rope extraordinaire” Colarossi raced to her first and best 200 breast in blazing speed (423.93), and then took to the blocks for some even better swimming, catapulting herself to a quick 327.80 in her 200 backstroke.
Emma “the longer distance the better” Boyle conquered her 200 free with a dazzling 7 second drop in her own swim (218.53).
Nico “put it on the line” Lastauskas also sliced off 4 seconds from his previous best 200 backstroke (215.82) continuing the backstroke racing rivalry with Peyton “always there” McNulty.

Nico Lastauskas and James Stanco were named partners of the week pushing eachother in the pool and in the weight room and setting the example to follow in the gym! Keep up the great work!

Also shout out to the gold/platinum groups on some outstanding practice distance times in this mornings distance freestyle set!

BDA Saturday morning Smiling Swims

The BDA group of 8 pulled off some strong and breakout swims this morning at practice and turned a dreary morning into a bright shiny practice through great support, encouragement, and teamwork as well as some super positive statements. Here are some of the bests of the set:

100 IMs FAST STROKE COUNT
Audrey “That was easy” Campo pulled off 59.35 and 59.74 at the end of the set making it look easy and opening the door for some even better stuff to come.

Peyton “stroke and kick count” McNulty dropped down to 101.77 and 100.49 and held her stroke count and kick count throughout the practice and revved up her engines for some speedy racing as the set went on.

Cat “quite the kicker” Donlon revved up her kick in her stroke count and descended her times down to two 56’s (56.65 and 56.92) by the end of the set with some super swimming.

Haley “turning excuses into opportunities” Thier turned her set into a flourishing finish with a little help from Cat, showing herself she could go a 103.41 holding stroke count on the final effort.

James “Unstoppable” Stanco made himself an unstoppable super hero for the swim practice, pushing a little more even when it got difficult and racing teammate Abby with a blazing 109.92 finish.

Abby “just keeps swimming betterand improving every day” Bowen pushed James and herself on the second half of the set dropping from a 119 to a 114 and then finished with a fantastic 110.33 going stroke count.

Victoria “quiet but tenacious racer with some hard working underwaters” Wrobleski showed her breakout stuff on the last effort dropping from a 123.95 best to a spectacular 117.01 at the finish!

Natalie “up and comer to watch out for and gatorade searcher” Colarossi finally found her gatorade after the set but went after her first 100 IM with a dazzline 204.46 and finished her set off with some blazing 50s (with her best of 51 seconds!).
