For our last dual meet of the summer season, we visited Glen Allen! Afternoon storms gave way to a (mostly) sunny meet with only a short delay for lightning. Both team swam well, but the Riptides managed to preserve our undefeated season by edging out the host team by a score of 1508.5-1289.5.
The full results can be found here. Keep in mind that the meet was held in a yards pool, but entry times and time standards all were converted from meters, so improvements and new speed classifications can be easily determined from the results.
Triple-PR swimmers: Maddie Andrews, Will Coker, Jeffrey Green, Matthew Guise, Alka Link, Kristine Ogden, Tommy Roberts, Riley Torrence, Nate Winters.
Quadruple winners: Hank Holland, William Kurz, Hayden Schwartz
Triple winners: Schuyler Biltz, Taylor Biltz, Will Coker, Ella Davis, Kate Farmer, Tory Farmer, Anne Claire Hart, Grace Phaup, Charles Prideaux, Ian Stevenson, Zoe Trenz
