Blue Rays Make A Splash!

2013BlueRaysMay-(51-of-77)

The Blue Rays hosted their last swim meet of the season, taking on the La Verne Gators and the Santa Anita Family YMCA from Monrovia. More than 70 people, including 47 swimmers, attended the meet at our Slavik Branch. Although the smallest of the three squads, our Blue Rays swam very, very well with every member taking home at least a third place ribbon! Notable times included: Maddie S. (7-8 age group) with a time of 1:54.44 in the 100-meter IM; Sebastian V. (9-10 age group) with a time 35.84 seconds (a personal best) in the 50-meter freestyle; Hope S. (9-10 age group) with a time of 38.31 seconds in the 50-meter freestyle; Faith S. (11-12 age group) with a time of  27.49 seconds (a personal best) in the 50-meter freestyle; Chloe L. (7-8 age group) with a time of 48.63 seconds in the 50-meter butterfly; and Jenna G. (9-10 age group) with a time of 1:12.88 (2nd place and a personal best) in the 100-meter freestyle, and a time of 33.01 seconds (1st place and another personal best) in the 50-meter backstroke. Great job everyone!
