Sprint Pentathlon, Relay Meet, and..... is that Michael Phelps on our team bus?

Friday night we competed in the annual Sprint Pentathlon. 50s of each stroke and a 100IM. You probably realize not all swimmers are suited to these events, but I told our team beforehand I believe everyone has something to gain by attacking these races, supporting their teammates, and having some fun. We did just that. There were solid swims and our returning swimmers crushed many of their times from last season.

Our women won the team competition with Lindsay Nixon taking first overall for the five-event combined time. We had 5 women in the top 13 places. Our men swam fast, the returners making great drops, and our freshmen showed us great range in their stroke events.

More to follow on our Halloween workout, but it's important to note that sophomore Matt Yelin was Michael Phelps for a day. All day!

Saturday we hosted the annual Northwest Conference Relay Meet in Zehntbauer. It's great to welcome so many teams to our home pool and the meet ran fast and smooth.
