On day one of the competition both swimmers competed in the 100 meter breaststroke. Both had decent swims, with Danielle placing 20th and Chris placing 34th and were close to their best times.
Day two they both competed in the 50 freestyle. They had very strong swims- within 0.2 seconds of their lifetime-best-times, their fastest ever heat swims. Both Chris and Danielle tied for 32nd position in their respective events.
The final day of the meet was the 50 breaststroke for both. Chris was .05 off his lifetime best time and his fastest ever morning swim. Danielle was close to her season best, and managed to make the consolation final and ended up placing 16th overall in that event.
“Although neither swimmer achieved best times at the meet, Chris was within tenths of a second off his lifetime best. Swimming next to the fastest guys in the country made us realize the little skills we need to work on during the spring and summer so he will be sharp and ready to go early in the season next year. Danielle did not finish as well as we had hoped, but she had a great season to cap off an amazing career as a Varsity Red swimmer. We will really miss Danielle’s leadership and performances both in and out of the pool, she is leaving big shoes to fill!” said head coach Robin Ferdinand
