SDMS Competes At First Summer USA Meet
Just a week into season and some Seahawks have competed in their first meet! The summer USA swimming season kicked off locally with the ACAC Rock The Blocks meet held June 5-7 in Ames, IA.
The Seahawks sent 18 swimmers to compete against 19 other teams from around Iowa, Minnesota and Nebraska.
Summer USA Swimming meets are a bit different. They are in “long-course” format, which means that swimmers swim 50 meters at a time, rather than the “short-course” 25 yards (or meters). Be sure to convert the times from the Rock The Blocks meet results if you’d like to compare them to the 2014/15 winter’s short-course meet times.
Here’s just a few meet highlights from the weekend. The actual time is shown with its converted equivalent in parenthesis.
- Torin Lackmann placed 7th overall in the 11-12 Girls 100 meter Breaststroke with her time of 1:32.68 (1:21.56). This was a new personal best!
- Shaun Slycord swam the 11-12 Boys 100 meter Free in a 1:15.90 (1:06.26)
- Lauren Benson swam a personal best time in the 11-12 Girls 50 Back with a 41.88 (36.44)
- Catherine Dooley swam the 13-14 Girls 100 meter Breaststroke in 1:37.87 (1:26.13)
- Samantha Douds earned a new personal best in the 10 & U Girls 50 meter Back with a 55. 93 (48.66)
