Good Luck Y-State Swimmers!

The YMCA State swim meet is this weekend (3/3 – Boys & 3/4 – Girls) in Marshalltown.  The Rails are proud to be sending several swimmers in multiple events to the Y-State meet.

These swimmers still had practice this week after celebrating the end of the regular club season on Monday. Y-state is a great opportunity to gain swimming experience. The atmosphere of a big meet can be daunting and the sooner athletes are exposed to the pressure – the better! This allows them to learn to focus on their race instead of the crowd when the meets really matter.

These swimmers are striving for personal bests (and even a few medals) so good luck to all of our Y-State Swimmers!
