Nate Doran broke the yards team records in the 11/12 boys’ 50 backstroke and 50 butterfly. Notably, the previous 50 yard butterfly record stood for 53 years, previously set in 1971 by W. Jeffrey. You may recall that Nate also broke Jeffrey’s 50 meter butterfly record two weeks ago. Breaking both of the oldest team records is quite a remarkable feat, so please congratulate Nate if you see him!

It was a great night for Stingrays’ backstrokers, led by Paolo Tique, who swam a 29.25 to take down the 13/14 boys’ 50 yard backstroke record by over a second. The previous record was set by Gray Remington in 2010. Congratulations, Paolo!

An exceptional highlight from last night’s meet featured Eric Blandford achieving his first-ever Champs qualification with his stellar swim in the 15-18 boys’ 100 yard breaststroke. Eric works incredibly hard as both a coach and a swimmer, and we are all very proud of his dedication to our team. For our younger swimmers: Coach Eric is a testament that hard work pays off! It is never too late to achieve your goals. Eric brings our team’s total Champs qualifiers up to 18. Who’s next?

Quadruple winners were: Charlie Doran, Layne Smith, Cecilia Thorne, and Paolo Tique.

Triple winners were: Rebecca Crady, Nate Doran, Owen Merritt, Aiden Montgomery, Carter Nielsen, Fleet Nystrom, Parker Nystrom, and Brogan VanLesser.

Thank you to all of our Stingray families for another great meet!

- Coach Paul
