Senior III


The Senior III group had a great meet in Lexington. Everyone came away from the meet with at least one best time. Five individuals recorded 100% best times! This group has come a long way since the beginning of the season. I really enjoy their enthusiasm towards each other and their racing. Let's buckle down these next three weeks and get ready for our December meet.

AGP had two swimmers at the KYA Autumn Classic this past weekend. Bella Mcwhorter swam the 200 IM and the 500 free on Saturday and dropped nearly 5.52 seconds in the IM and 19.61 seconds in her 500 free!

Aiden Albritton swam a full weekend of events and he swam well both days. On Saturday, he dropped 1.27 seconds in his 100 fly and he finished the weekend strong by dropping 2 seconds in his 100 backstroke and a whopping 44 seconds in his 500 free on Sunday!

Excellent job Aiden and great swimming Bella! Triton Strong! #ALL-IN

GOLD:

Gold KILLED it once again. I am so proud of the hard work they have been putting into each and every practice; it is showing in their meet performances. The meet was a little chaotic with the two pools, three coaches, and about 100 swimmers but no one from gold missed their event (yay)! There were a bunch of new state cuts and more personal bests! I still think there is room to improve on our turns, coming off of our walls, and being positive about events that are not our best. But overall, I was happy with the results.

We had 31 Swimmers do 217 events with 162 BEST TIMES (75.7%).

State Cuts (new):

Asher Albritton (100 BREAST & 100 IM)

Logan Brown (50 BACK)

Ava Cohen (50 BREAST)

Molly Dailey (100 BREAST)

Charlotte Dawkins (100 IM)

Anna Grugel (50 & 100 BREAST)

Marko Kristo (200 IM & 100 FLY)

Lyla Hottman

Emerson Northup

Reese Wigger

SILVER:


What a great job to all of the Silver swimmers this last weekend in Lexington! Seeing the whole group at the swim meet was great and seeing everyone get a long and having great team spirit all throughout the weekend was great to see. Going into the weekend we worked on a bunch of open turns and making sure we work those under waters to the flags. Watching what I could between both pools everyone executed the open turns great! Seeing how they brought their feet up to the wall and seeing them elbow underwater and push off in the streamline was great. I even got some compliments from other teams how great the open turns were on their events! We will now get ready for our mid-season meet down at UofL and I can’t wait to see how awesome we do!
