But it is going to be much more than that. Much More.
17 of the 18 swims were season best times. 13 were lifetime best times. That is outstanding work.
Jeff moved into 3rd place in school history in the 50 freestyle and into 3rd place in the 100 Butterfly.
Alex M was previously unranked in the 50 and 100 and leaves the day now being ranked 13th in the 50 freestyle and 18th in the 100 freestyle.
And that was just a portion of it. Trevor looked sharp in his new haircut as well as the 200 and 100 Free. Dominic took charge anchoring the Medley Relay. Brian swam strong in the 50 and 100 Free. Luke went under 55 for the first time ever in the 100. Connor went his best time in his last swim in high school. Matty Ice went his best in his only swim. Alex G was brilliant in the 100 Breast. Jack saved his best swim of his high school career for his last relay!
All of the hours of practice. All of the sessions with Coach Crosby in the weight room. All of the extra practices during Christmas break. Remember the pain and gnashing of teeth to survive.
All worth it!! Sign me up for that again!!
Thank you Matt, Alex, Jack, and Connor. Your senior leadership and energy over the years has been great and will be missed.
But it is not done for everyone. Jeff will swim again Saturday in Madison with more detail tomorrow.
