We recently started swimming in ‘drag,’ that is wearing extra suits and clothing in order to increase resistance, and we trained right through this meet. In spite of being sore and tired we still saw some best and near best times.
Our swimmers were out aggressively in their events, which is what we wanted to do, but because we were swimming tired our athletes often didn’t have the closing speed necessary to win the races.
River Valley/Richland Center have some good freestylers so they were able to stay in front of us the entire meet. We have a little work to do in that area before we get into our final round of conference meets. But I’m proud of how far the ladies have come so far this season.
