GwinAq Swimmers Excel in Post-season Meets
8/7 - While most of their teammates were enjoying the last week of vacation, three GaGa swimmers were competing in some big postseason meets and tearing it up this past weekend.
Juliana Carey was competing with the Georgia Zone team at the Zone Champs in Tupelo. She was selected as a captain of the team and scored in five different events while picking up some new Futures times.
Meanwhile Alex Norcini and Drew Grier were competing in Nashville at r the Futures Champs. Alex scored some hardware, taking home a 5th place medal in 400 IM. He reclaimed his team record in that event after Josh Fountain broke it the previous week. He also re-broke his own record in the 200 IM. Drew Grier picked up his first ever Junior National time and Scholastic All-American time in the 100 fly.
GaGa 14th at Senior State Champs
7/25 - Most of the Gwinnett Aquatics senior group finished out the season this weekend at the Senior State Champs at UGA. While most of the swimmers had their big meet at Sectionals and three swimmers still headed to Zones and Futures, the meet was still a good one for a group of swimmers
Josh Fountain broke Alex Norcini's 400 IM record en route to a 4th place finish and the boys re-broke the 400 Medley Relay record while missing two 200 relays records by less than .1 seconds. Drew Grier scored three events with a 4th in the 50 fly and Charlie Fountain scored for the first time ever taking 12th in the 1500.
This week Juliana Carey will be competing in Tupelo with the GA Zone team while Alex Norcini and Drew Grier will travel to Nashville for the Futures Champs.
Ga-Ga 2nd in Medium Team Division at Age Group State!
Following our best-ever finish at the SCY Age Group State Champs back in February, our 14&U swimmers topped that one in the LCM meet held last week at Ga Tech, finishing 9th overall and 2nd amongst the Medium Teams Division. This is our highest ever finish at a State Champs! Individually the team was led in scoring by Issac Saenz, who won 2 events and medaled in 6 others! Marlowe Misner, our next top-scorer, also had a top-3 finish and multiple scoring swims; Graham Simmon and Lauren Diehl also had multiple scoring swims each, and Lindsey Diehl rounded up our individual scorers.
And while our swimmers had plenty of individual highlights, it was our Ga-Ga Relays that really made a difference in the team scoring, and provided some of our best swims of the weekend, including a whooping 8 New Club Records! The 12&U foursome of Lindsey Diehl, Desymber Richie, Marlowe Misner and Hanna Burke broke a record in all 4 of their swims! Not to be outdone, the 10&U quartet of Hannah-Claire Jowers, Grace Fleming, Caitlyn Diehl and Cate Rovie also broke a record both times they were combined! Finally, the 14&U Girls (Haley Burke, Maggie Nguyen, Lauren Diehl, Ava Gawronski) and the 12&U Boys (Nolan Patterson, Graham Simmon, Isaac Saenz) both broke the 400 Medley Record for their age group!
Saenz picked up his first AAAA(s) of the season and also broke the team record in the 10&U 100 Fly! Simmon picked up his first-ever AAA, and Rachel DeLong picked up her first-ever A time. Simmon, as well as Caitlyn Diehl, Ryan Haskins and Dylan Yin were all 100% best times! For our Age Groupers, this was a great way to cap off a season in which we kept getting better and better, and especially on those older age groups it showed how much of a difference it makes to have a consistent attendance through the season, and especially the commitment to train and follow the plan for the summer season.
And of course, we couldn't mention Age Group State without a HUGE THANK YOU to all our parents (and swimmers) who helped us run the meet! While we struggled a little more this year than in the past to fill-up our volunteer slots, there were quite a few families who gave up so much of their time to make this meet a success: in the hospitality room, as officials, or on deck as times, runners, and a variety of other jobs! Once again we heard tons of positive feedback from other teams, and have maintained our great reputation as an organization that does things right - and deservedly so!
