Tsunami swimmers are proud to represent their team throughout the Commonwealth and around the country in competition with Virginia Swimming and USA Swimming.
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.
