Saturday was a special day, capped by a swim off in the 50 BK featuring SMAC lifer Trinity Wenzel. What's a Swim-off?? When races come down to .01 of a second, if there's a tie to get into finals, the two swimmers race each other in an all out, Mano y Mano, duel in the pool, guts and glory race for a chance to swim in finals. After tying at 31.21 for 10th place with a swimmer from Raleigh, the race was on. It could have been called a race I guess, but it was over before it started. Trinity "when I say 'win' you say 'zel' " Wenzel finished the swim-off with a SMAC All Time Team Record in the 50 BK. 29.99. SMAC's second top 15 swim in the STATE so far this season. IN THE SAME DAY. Below is Tinity's second place finish in the 50 BK finals session - from LANE 10!
Sunday morning, the team followed suit. Gavin Bishop's huge drop in his 500 FR was spectacular, topping a group of guys that were under 6:00 for their first time. Riley Laursen's 2:34.99 200 BR earned him an 8th place spot in SMAC's All Time Records. Stephen Wenzel's 50 FR was wonderful, hitting an 8th place finish in SMAC's records. Congrats to Tessa Davis for a fantastic first 200 Fly.
