National Team

 CSSC National Team had a great showing at the AT&T Winter National Championships in Knoxville, TN. Three-time Olympian Arlene Semeco is still fast in the water. The 29-year-old Venezuelan turned in her fastest sprint time since her sophomore year of college on the opening day of the AT&T Winter National Championships.
Seeded 45th coming into the meet, Arlene was the 12th fastest qualifier in the 50-yard freestyle in 22.76. She finished sixth in the "B" final and 14th overall in 22.94. Among a national-caliber field, Alex Evdokimov and Emily Kopas made it into the "C" finals Friday night in the 100 breaststrokes. Alex's time of 54.02 was a life-time best by over a second and a new FGC 17-18 age-group record. Emily was only 23 hundredths off a personal best with 1:02.15. The day after Alex Evdokimov came back strong and qualified for the consolation final in the 200 breaststroke, where he took down a 12-year old 17-18 FGC record that belonged to our own Vlad Polyakov. Alex's time of 1:58.69 also gave him 18 and Under National Title. We are very proud of how these athletes represented CSSC at the Nations largest stage.

Senior I

chris-jacksonI requested to combined October and November so people can understand what these high school kids have to contend with over a two month period. OK here we go... First up was the BCAA'S held at The Plantation Aquatic Complex. Senior 1 had 9 high school swimmers competing at this meet. This was a great opportunity to get a taste for what was to come in the next several weeks. They produced 18 best times out of 33 swims. Senior 1 also competed in The Mike Horgan Invite the same weekend. This meet included both high school and middle school swimmers. My kids produced 18 best times out of 35 swims. Notable performances: Danny Gomez dropped 7 seconds in the 400 im and 4 in the 2 im: Gui Hada dropped 3 in the 2 free and 4 in the 100 fr: Alexio Musleh dropped 3 in the 100 br.
Now it starts to get tricky with the start of The High School State Series. There was another state class added to the mix. Senior 1 had swimmers in 9 different high schools which were very spread out with the extra class. All my swimmers managed to advance to their regional meets. Outstanding performances were DISTRICT CHAMPS AUGUST CHARNI AND EMILY JURICH!!!
Regionals were even a bit more tricky. All the state meets in the past were held on the same weekend but with the changes there were two weekends. This was challenging as a coach but my kids did not disappoint... Competition at this point is tough and best times don't mean advancement to states.
Senior 1 individual advances to STATES included August Chari, Brenden Teeters, Bryce Pierce, Emily Jurich who was*REGIONAL CHAMP*, Rebecca Wilkerson and Sebastian Vargas. Senior 1 relay state qualifiers: Andrew Szatkowsky, Josh Cutter, Kristen Sauer, Lindsey Sauer and Nicole Gautieri. My swimmers made me proud with 11 of them attending the meet! Not to mention 5 out of 6 individuals making finals :) Notable performances by A finalist. Emily Jurich 7th and Rebecca Wilkerson 6th! It was very exciting but not done yet...
The saga continued to Winter Champs. Another challenge for my high school people and a chance for my middle school athletes to step up. It was a fun meet with great swims and lessons learned...Notable performances: Nick Dwort with 6 out of 7 finals swims: Emily Jurich with a second place finish in the 100 breast: Alexio Musleh was 1st in the 400 im, 100 breast, 200 free, 200 im and 200 fly. He also WON SECOND PLACE HIGH POINT. Last but not least Sebastian Vargas finished with a SECOND PLACE HIGH POINT as well... It was a great couple months for Senior 1. See you at the pool

Senior 2A

dave-cowmeadowIt was an exciting November for the Senior 2A swim team as we prepared for the Winter Championships in Plantation. Competitors Dominique Fajado, Alex Meyer, and Adrianna Cuevas swam fantastic swims. Coming up in December we will compete at our very own sprint meet in Coral Springs on the 7th and 8th. I am looking forward to seeing many swimmers compete in this meet.
Our training has been excellent for this month, and I look forward to starting our time of 4-6pm, so many of you can get home a little early for dinner and homework. I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving Holidays, and I am sure thankful to be a member of the Coral Springs Swim Club family, See you on the deck!

Senior 2B

kayla-abramThe month of November has been quiet for the Senior 2B group. We have been getting ready for the Coral Springs Invitational on December 7th and 8th. Practices have been fuller than ever, with almost a perfect attendance a few times! Everyone has finished high school season and back with us to continue to work on stroke work and speed. We have been focusing on good starts and turns to shave off a few seconds on everyone's upcoming races. I look forward to this month and seeing what next season will bring!

Mullins swimmer Riley Botting joined us for winter champs and had an incredible meet winning three events and swimming three best times! Congrats to all swimmers participating in this meet. You worked really hard this season and deserved the awesome results!
Rachel Botting is our diligence award winner this month in blue group! Rachel is early for every practice and often uses the time to work on skills such as jump rope as she waits for her teammates to arrive for practice. Rachel is intentional about focusing on her technique and puts her heart into every lap she swims. Rachel rarely misses practice, and when she has to, she makes every effort to make it up at another time. One of the best things about Rachel is her attitude! She smiles about everything, even when she doesn't like it or understand it. She puts a smile on her face and gives it her best shot! Rachel's diligence really paid off at Winter Champs! Congratulations Rachel!
Faith Fowler is our diligence award winner for white group this month! Faith has made huge strides in training in the last month! Faith has been coming to practice with determination to improve. She refuses to accept anything less than her best effort in every detail of practice. Not only is she aware of what she is doing at practice, but she notices when her teammates are having a great practice and celebrates with them and when she has a teammate that is struggling through a training session she is the first one to encourage them and help them along! Faith's determination to train hard to reach her goals is really going to pay off and we are excited to see it happen at our next meet!
To finish up this season Blue and White Groups will be participating in the Coral Springs Sprint Invitational on December 7-8, 2013. We will follow up this final chance for some fast swims with two weeks of solid training to round out the end of the season before we take a break to enjoy the holiday season and rest up for the upcoming spring season!
