Nantucket Dolphins - Our Events
Dolphins Shine at Championships
Thank you to everyone to made this season possible. This win for Nantucket was a complete team effort. We told the kids before this weekend, no one swimmer can win a championship, it takes a team; "WE before me". That was very much the case during this meet. To my surprise, we ended day 1 with a 51 point lead. It the pool, it didn't look like we were getting the points we needed but as I look at the results that wasn't the case. We may not have had a lot of first place finishes, but if you look at the top 8 in most events, you'll find at least 4 Nantucket swimmers scoring points. As a team we swam 62% better than our seed times which is the best percentage amongst all the teams.
On Day 2, we started out with a bang with our Medley Relays which helped set the tone for the rest of the day. We had increased our lead to about 100 points after the Butterfly. After the Backstrokes and IMs, the lead was back down to 51 points. We had a very strong showing in the Breaststrokes and 100 Freestyles. Coming into the last relays, we just needed to do our jobs and have clean swims with no mistakes, and we did just that giving us our 4th SEMSL Championship and our second in as many years.
Again, a big THANK YOU to everyone who made this possible and especially to the swimmers.Jim
