The Northern Lake YMCA Seahorse swim team made another strong showing while hosting a dual meet against the Poseidons from Berwyn’s PAV YMCA Oct. 22 at the Waukegan High School pool.
“We had some amazing time drops at this meet – 20-plus seconds in some cases,” Head Coach Mike Hewitt said. “The kids are working hard and showing a lot of improvement for this year in the season.”
Taylor Rouse dropped 15.55 seconds in the 7-8 Girls 25-yard freestyle and 28.4 seconds from the 50-yard freestyle. Nenna Rouse shaved 23.87 seconds from her 9-10 Girls 50-yard freestyle time and 36.91 from the 100-yard freestyle. Natan Weiner reduced his 9-10 Boys 100-yard freestyle by 10.43 seconds.
The Seahorses’ next home event will be the Seahorse Invitational at Northern Lake YMCA, 2000 Western Ave. in Waukegan, on Nov. 6 at 9 a.m. Before that, the team travels to the Foglia YMCA in Lake Zurich on Oct. 30 for the “Swamp Invitational.”
