New Personal Best Swims

At Ridgetop we celebrate improvement above all else, and the best measure of success for a swimmer in a meet is to set a new personal record (PR) in an event. Fifteen swimmers — listed above — achieved PRs in ALL of their events, while many others achieved PRs in at least one event. Getting a best time in a meet is something to be very proud about. Way to go Riptides!

We had THREE swimmers drop thirteen seconds in their events tonight – Matthew Burnside (100 IM), Susan Pilc (100 free), and Mary-Kate Hrabak (25 free). Other swimmers having big drops of 6 or more seconds were Mia Lambert (10 sec), Tolly Hulcher (9 sec), Ella Post (7 sec), Madoc Winters (6 sec), Electra Cimino (6 sec), and Claire Brown (6 sec).
