On July 7th at Severn Crossing Pool (Bowie, MD), 85 WOW swimmers again brought their “A” game to our first away meet of the season against the Severn Crossing Stingrays (SX). With both WOW Medley Relay teams seizing the lead, WOW swimmers gradually pulled away during the individual stroke events and led by 53 points going into the Individual Medleys. WOW fended off a SX push to close the gap to finish 35 points ahead and post its second win of the season: final score WOW 331 / AST 237. Congratulations to 48 swimmers who recorded improved times. In addition, WOW swimmers posted only 15 DQs (6% of all splashes).
Coach Greathouse again congratulated the WOW swimmers on an incredible meet, commenting “The athletes on WOW continue to amaze and improve from week to week and it’s amazing to watch. Being the visiting team in an unfamiliar pool and having to do in-water starts are two disadvantages that all WOW athletes overcame in tremendous fashion!”
