The following report is pasted from our website.
On June 8, Ridgetop opened its summer season with a visit to the Country Club of Virginia. This year Ridgetop moved up to the more competitive "Blue" division of JRAC, so we’ll be swimming the largest teams in the league. Some excellent swims by the Riptides could not overcome the depth of the host CCV team, who won 1747-1108. We congratulate them on some excellent swimming and for providing a fine venue and organized meet to start off the season.
There were three triple winners for the Riptides: Kate Farmer, Colin Fenster, and Frances Melvin. Kate won the 100 IM, 50 Back and 50 Fly, all in the 11-12 XX category; Colin won the 100 IM (X), 100 Free (X) and 100 Breaststroke (XX) in the 15-18 age group, while Frances swept her individual events in the 100 IM, 50 Free and 50 Back in the 13-14 X category. Now that’s some excellent swimming!
There were two new team records set in the meet: Zoe Trenz set a new mark of 32.22 in the 15-18 50 fly, erasing an 11-year-old record previously held by Ellie Saunders, while Kate Farmer set a new record on 35.18 in the 11-12 50 Back, breaking the mark held by Kate Powers.
The coaches were proud of the swimming performances, enthusiasm and class on display from the Riptide swimmers; keep it up and we’ll see you at next practice! Monday (tomorrow) is a fun practice!
IMPORTANT NOTE: On Friday, June 13, there will be no swim practices
See you at the pool!
