Seven TVSC Long Course Team Records Broken by Luka Zuric, Angelina Harris (2), Emily Bardak, Jason Louser (2), and Chris O'Shea
Meet results Individual results
12 athletes, Coach Mark and Coach Peter traveled to Buffalo for first ever Eastern Zone Long Course Senior Championships at the ECC Flickinger Aquatic Center and they did well!
It was a fast meet with many college swimmers. The goal for many was to qualify for the 2016 US Olympic Team Trials, and several new Olympic Trial cuts were swum. All our swimmers had to swim fast in the morning to just qualify for the D-final -- for our fastests athletes swimming fast in morning may not always be necessary in the December Holiday Classic or at Counties.
Our Casey Gavigan missed the Olympic Trial cut. After a good 100 back prelims swim in the morning, her nerves got the better of her in finals and she did not swim the cut. However, we all know she will get the 100 back Olympic Trail cut next season!
Angelina, Jason and Eric swam all best times -- they swam (almost) all best times in prelims and swam even faster in finals. First time qualifiers Ryan and and Eric both finaled in their best events!
All remembered again how tough these 3 or 4 day prelims / finals meets are, and after swimming strong the first two days, several "ran out of gas" the second half of meet. Still, on the fourth day of racing, Angelina, Kyra, Casey, Emily, Jason, Eric, Ryan, Andrew swam best times!
