Note From Coach Kevin - December 13th

Posted by Birmingham Blue Dolphins on Dec 13 2022 at 07:56AM PST

Dear Parents and Swimmers,

It was a very important weekend for BBD!

Ethan Schwab attended the East Speedo Junior Championships in Greensboro NC. He was one of three qualifiers from BBD, the others being Samantha Clifford and Angus MacDonald, who opted not to attend. Ethan swam three events: the 200 IM, the 100 and 200 breast and set new BBD team records in all three. On Friday and Saturday nights, Ethan swam in the finals of the men’s 100 and 200 breaststroke events. Coach Peter was on deck with him and the rest of the coaches were watching as the events were streamed. Ethan finished 5th and 6th respectively, in extremely close and inspiring races.

I am so proud of Ethan, and grateful that Peter was able to accompany him to such a major meet. While we have had swimmers in the past attend we weren’t always able to send a coach. The team’s reputation certainly is enhanced when we have swimmers at these national meets. Congratulations!

We have added a few US Meets to our schedule. The latest is the USSC meet. This is being offered to swimmers who are not going to the Indy meet. Please do not enter if you are signed up for Indianapolis.

Our holiday schedule will be available soon.

Have a great week!
