Snappers who participated the the Trick or treat Meet at RPI on Sunday posted impressive times.
As of the end of the meet we now have 19 New England Regional Qualifiers, and 5 New England Silvers Qualifiers. Keep up the good work Snappers!
Long time Snapper, Nicholas Gray, age 16, set a Snapper Swim Club team RECORD for his performance in the 200 breaststroke during Sunday's Meet. He lowers the former record of 2:40.44 held by Anthony Polyak to 2:34.96. This record has stood since January of 2009. Congratulations NICK!
After the championship meets this season the team record bord has changed.
Four swimmers this season broke team records for Short Course:
The First step in the IMX challenge is IM Ready. To get IM ready, swimmers compete in a series of five events at shorter distances. Here are the events by age group:
9 & Under; 10-year olds: 100 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly, 100IM
11+12 year olds: 200 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly, 100 IM
13-18 year olds: 200 Free, 100 Back, 100 Breast, 100 Fly, 200 IM
Once you have swum each event at an offical meet you can log into your deck pass account and see where you rank agianst your team members and other swimmers in the region and in the nation.
At SNAPPER SWIM CLUB we start each season training for the IM. Every swimmer who swims for SNAP will compete in the IM at some point in the season, and we feel that the IM is the greatest indicator of your swimming skill. We will never limit a swimmer to one event because as swimmers grow specialities will change.
