The Sizzler event included races that are challenging for our younger swimmers, aged 8 and younger, such as the 100 Breast, 100 Back, 200 Free and 200 IM. However, the Mullins group certainly rose to the challenge. Coach Bar Bogoslavsky reported, “we had some great swims from everyone in the club. Mullins group swimmers brought their A game and were ready to race. We had some great swims this weekend”. SHe continued, adding accolades to those swimmers who took a risk and competed in some of the more challenging heats, “A little shout out to our swimmers who swam the 200 IM and the 200 Free. They all killed it and we look forward to seeing them continue to improve over the season”.
The Girls 13 and Over 200 Breast was an exciting race with even better results as CSSC took 1st by Faith Fowler at 2:29.97, 3rd by Giulianna Garcia at 2:21.62, and 4th by Micaela Sierra at 2:25.05.
