I guess it should come as no surprise to anyone that the team that had 4 of its 5 meets this summer decided by a total of 20 points kept it going today by hosting a very exicting All-star meet. Four league records, five triple winners, uncounted close races, including one 1st place tie, and one event with five heats, which is believed to be a CSL All-star meet record.
Today's league records were set by a pair of 14-year olds, South Riding's Jennifer Luong and Chinquapin's Emil LaSida, in the same pair of events. In Backstroke, Jennifer touched in 29.40, bettering her own record set at Divisionals last week. She also swam 1:06.11 in IM, lowering the mark she set at IM Tough on July 9.
On the boys side, Emil also lowered his own Backstroke record from last week with a time of 28.58. Later, he dominated a strong final in IM by popping a time of 1:01.54, over 4 seconds under his seed time.
Both swimmers also won Fly in their respective age groups to lead a group of five triple winners. The other triple winners were 10-year old Emma Lundy of the Burke Centre Stingers (Back, Fly, IM), 12-year old Angelina Sagaow of Chase Club (Free, Fly, IM), and 15-year old Janika Perezous of Cascades (Free, Back, IM).
Congratulations to all, and many thanks to Cascades for running a very successful first All-star meet.
