We’re at the midpoint of the year and all systems are go! The swimmers and divers have finished the Fall competitive season, classes are over, finals have begun, and the Xmas break is almost upon us. As you all remember this is the time of year when everyone is trying to juggle academic pressure, workout obligations, and the desire to get outta Dodge all at once and still maintain a good conditioning base.
The first semester went very well and all indications point towards some superb swimming by the Atlantic 10 Championships. We’ve got some things to do before then including our annual training trip to Puerto Rico. With the temperature hovering around 13 degrees today that trip is sounding pretty good right now!
Here’s a wrap up of the last few weeks:
Championship Chili Chowdown
The team all came over to the house for a feast of chili, mashed potatoes, cornbread, and munchies the week before the Terrier Invitational. Let’s say that the next day’s practice was gas powered….
The boys came to swim and dive that’s for sure. Leading the way was distance ace Alessandro Bomprezzi as he swept the 200, 500, and 1650 freestyles with some really tough unshaved performances. Also standing out were Ryan Bobianski with some nice Breaststroke and IM swims and freshman Owen Wright cranking out a great 100 & 200 Free as well as a very quick 200 IM. Our other freshman standout Ollie Wyeth established a new school record in the 100 Back at :49.11, followed closely by senior teammate and former record holder Hao Luong. These two are battling it out every day in practice! Full results are here.
On the Saturday afternoon of the Terrier we had a social for alumni and parents at Dillon’s Bar and Grill in Boston. It was well attended and a great event. Let’s see more of you there next year.
Ryan Bobianski and Tommy Brennan for tough swims at Terrier
Wiktor Karpinski for his anchor leg of the 400 Freestyle Relay vs. Army
Chris Alpay for a get out swim in practice last week.
Alex D’Anna for busting out a distance set which most of his group failed last week!
