And now for something completely different

Recommended Posts

Well, to take the place of Terry Bowden news for a little bit, here's some nuggets from the Zippy Invitational 3-day Swim meet at Ocacek that just ended last night.  Once more, the Zips showed they ARE the strongest team by far in the MAC, with for other Mac schools present.  The times might not have been as impressive as in the past, but the performances were, and the team seems to be building for the MAC meet, which by the way we re hosting, and beyond that to the NCAAs, as we are a nationally ranked team.  As usual, they dominated all of the relays and a highlight was the SMASHING of their own record in the 800 yard freestyle relay and setting a new record in the 400 freestyle relay.  Freshman Sarah Watson broke a meet record in the 200 IM, won the 100 butterfly and the 100 freestyle, to be the swimmer of the meet, IMHO.   Freshman Sophia Hennell won the 50 free, Karly Crail won the 1 meter diving, Freshman Avery Movold came out of nowhere to win the 200 freestyle, Brooke Lamoureux won the mile (swim a mile!), Freshman Andrea Fisher made a charge to win the 200 breaststroke from lane 1, and Paulina Nogaj set a record in the win in the 200 butterfly.  The men's competition is dominated by Oakland, and there's only 5 teams that show, but the women's side had 10 teams.  The upperclassmen still contributed, and are building their training towards the post season, I think.  Lots of duals ahead.....

While that's a fairly gruesome image I will bet you are correct that it intimidated those other teams. ;-)

I've heard it for years "we ARE what we ATE" or something like that!

All right had my fun with the typos, but it is pretty darn amazing what swimming and diving has done. They were a bit of a MAC doormat prior to this run. That is a monster turnaround.
