The high school girls team tackled Time Trials on Saturday (8/13). While it was only the first Saturday of the season, it’s important to have a mock meet to evaluate individual swims and splits for relay events. Those times help coaches determine the best line-up for the first few meets of season. The team did well, swimming significantly faster than at last year’s time trials. In fact, some times from Saturday weren’t seen until halfway into season last year! The improvements are truly a testament to the everyone’s hard work in the off-season.
Below are just a few meet highlights from Saturday’s time trials. While we can’t include everyone in the meet highlights, we try to feature swims from every meet. Please note that Time Trials works a little different than dual meets. We keep most varsity times under wraps until after the first meet of the season, so they won’t be featured here.
