Tsunami Swimming wishes all RSL Summer League swimmers good luck in today's Championship meet!
Tsunami Swimming participated in the BASS Winter Warm Up held at the Woodberry Forest Pool in Orange Virginia on February 7, 2016. While the meet was cut short due to uncontrollable circumstances, our swimmers still dropped time in the pool.
One dozen Tsunami swimmers placed in the top eight in their events. Congratulations to Charlottle Denecke on setting a new team record and a new "AA" time! Our top-eight finishers are listed below.
Tsunami competed in the Eastern Zone IMX meet held January 29-31, 2016 at the University of Maryland in College Park. With 81 teams and over 1200 swimmers coming from Virginia to Maine, the IMX meet is one of the largest age group meets in the country.
Tsunami sent six swimmers to Zones and they achieved new team records, new standards, and new qualifying times! Anna Slominski added to her already-impressive team record haul with new records in both the 200 Yard IM and the 200 Yard Breaststroke, which was also a new AA time. Ryan McOsker earned a new A time in the 200 Yard Freestyle, along with an Age Group Qualifying time. Charlotte Denecke swam to two new AAs and two new A times, and Ciara Graves swam three AAAs and two A times, including a new A in the 200 Yard IM. Our lone distance swimmer, Abby Cook earned a new A time in the 500 free.
Congratulations on the great swims! Select acheivements are listed below.
Rachel Amidon, who trains with Tsunami's Masters program, competed at the Alexandria Masters Splash on January 31, 2016 at the George Washington RecCenter in Alexandria.
Rachel raced to two first-place finishes and two second-place finishes in her age group, proving that hard work and dedication truly pay off! A former age-group swimmer who trained with Coach Pete as a youth, Rachel is swimming impressive times and continues to improve. Congratulations Rachel!
