Centurion Swimming Feasts at Gobbler Games

The swimmers did an outstanding job at the City of Alice Gobbler Games. Even though everyone else had started their Thanksgiving break, the swimmers chose to swim on Friday prelims and Saturday finals. For all of the swimmers, it was the first time they had been exposed to a prelims/finals meet format. Consequently, some of their times were better on Friday than Saturday since they were tired and unused to swimming at a meet level for two days. However, even so, the A relay did break the 2010 school record in the 200 Freestyle Relay. Vivian Lyle, Annisa Maxwell, Darienne Parris and Sarah Lee Sang did not just break the record, they brought it down a 3.23 seconds. The new record of 2:08.38 set in the prelims session of the swim meet surpasses the old record of 2:11.61. The A Medley relay also dropped 3.50 seconds and is now only 8 seconds away from the 2012 school record for the 200 Medley Relay! Congratulations! The swimmers are now looking forward to breaking additional individual school records this year as well. The biggest drop for the meet was done by Isabella Rutledge with a 10.98 second in the 100 Back followed closely by Victoria Verdin with a 9.87 second drop in her 100 free. Every swimmer that attended dropped time in at least one event! Very good job swimmers! The final results are as follows:
