Our Skimmers did an AMAZING job this past weekend at the Marlin’s Golden Plains Invitational.  We saw personal bests & club records get set during morning preliminary sessions – only to be squashed by those swimmers during evening finals!  Here are a few of the highlights:

  • Total of 13 clubs participated in the meet
  • Skimmers swam 34 preliminary events – and made 16 finals!!!  Almost half of all swims qualified for finals!
  • 4 Top 8 finishes, and another 12 Top 16 finishes
  • 34 New Personal Best Times
  • 19 New Club Records
  • Complete results can be found here
