The Stella Swim Team captured it’s 1st victory of the year!!! SNEP won by 16 points with awesome swims, individual sacrifices & an incredible coaching strategy by our General “Dwight D. Sperry.” Her brilliant pre-game lineup & critical in-game “switch-a-roos” got us those extra points Stella needed to come out on top!
SNEP needed to secure a 1 & 2 in the 9/10 relay in the last group…Lola, Caden, Ella & Delilah cruised in 1st for 8 points while Jenna, Anna, Chad & Beanon took 2nd by 1.11 seconds for a crucial 4 points!!! In similar fashion, for the 50 breast 11 & over, Ava nabbed 1st for 5 points while Beck took 2nd by 1.14 seconds!!! Those 2nd place finishes are huge & our kids swam their hearts out to secure those points. SNEP also didn’t enter a medley relay in 11& over, in order to 1, 2 the freestyle relays in the end…ALL HAIL COACH SPERRY!!!
Hannah & Zac showed tremendous team spirit by choosing themselves, to sacrifice the opportunity to capture individual “elite all*stars” in order to score points for the team! Stellal Niagara applauds Hannah & Zac. Our coaches cannot put in to words their appreciation & pride to have our kids making decisions of this magnitude.
Our swimmers accolades & highlights of the meet are as follows:
- 2 School Records
- Zac 100 free
- Ava 50 breast
- 18 All*Stars (from 11 swimmers)
- 38 Speeding tickets
- 9/10 division STILL UNDEFEATED
Congratulations to the #3 “Swimmer of the Meet” – Aliye Huzmeli
Aliye took 8 points, which was the most in her 8 & under group, crushed the most difficult of events – the 100IM all while maintaining her super spirited & enthusiastic screaming at the top of her lungs for minutes on end self!!! All this is part of the formula to the equation for our “Swimmer of the Meet.”
As always, the coaches thank the parents in the stands, volunteers on deck and Mike Winker for sending the results to our local papers.
