Training Group Percentage of Best Times @ 55% ~ Way to Go!

I am so proud of this group with just coming off a very hard week of work!


Senior 1

Greg saw Ian’s 100 back and was inspired to match or nest his time. Mission accomplished it was a great swim. He is continuing to work on his endurance for all the 200s and working on his start for the 50 free. Emma was an outside smoke in the 100 back and had a great 100 free in the relay. Keeping her shoulder in function and enjoying the final weeks of her swimming career. Aiden won the 1500 free. He is working on the middle portion of his 200s and 400s. Hanna was most pleased with her 100 breast, but her 200 IM, 200 BR, and 200 Back were also nice swims. She is still learning and training hard to have a super 400 im. Kaylee had a beautiful 200 fly under 3:00 for the first time. She is learning how to pace that race and how to finish the last 25. Ty went a best time in the 100 fly just missing the state cut, which we all know that he will get. Jack Westfall who is new to the group went all best times and I was impressed with his 100 back.

Attendance and communication are the most important elements to swimmer being the best they can be. We are only 6 weeks away from State Champs!

Bronze & Pre-Comp

Meet Recap for Bronze & Pre-Comp from June 5 & 6, E-town Summer Classic.


What a great away meet. For many of the swimmers in Bronze and Pre-Comp this meet was their 1st meet not at Blairwood. We were dealing with some nerves, excitement, and the crazy weather of an E-town meet!


Everyone that swam in the meet did an amazing job. We had numerous best times and major time drops. Some of the most amazing time drops from the meet 2 weeks ago were the following: Henry Dicken 8 ½ seconds in 50 breast, Evie Flowers 7 ½ in 100 breast, Aubrey McWhorter 9 ½ in 100 back, Zackary Vlahos 18 ½ in 100 breast and 14 ½ in 50 fly, Drew Coty 21 ½ in 50 back, and Adelynn Craft 16 ½ in 50 breast.


We had many of the swimmers finish in the top 8 and receive ribbons for their great swims. Congratulations to Aubrey McWhorter and Zackary Vlahos for being the 8 & Under High Point winners of the meet!
