News and Notes
RMAL's 2022 regular season and Champs are in the books and what an exciting end to our year it was! From our awesome coach relays to our first scholarship award, and the amazing relay record set on the very last event, this summer was a great return to the complete tradition of RMAL and summer swimming.
We don't want to let the season slip away without thanking the countless volunteers who make this happen year after year, especially our parent representatives and coaches who give so generously of their time and energy to go far above and beyond to give our swimmers experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
So many exciting records made at Champs. Congratulations to the following swimmers who broke these meter times.
Willow Oak's Molly Blanchard with a new girls 15-18 100 free time of 51.61
Shenandoah's Trey Young with a new boys 11-12 100 IM time of 59.56
Jack Clippinger with a new boys 13-14 50 breast time of 28.00
Brighton Green's Ryan Hufford with 3 new boys 15-18 records, 50 freestyle time of 20.93, 50 back time of 23.02, 50 fly time of 22.92
And the season ending relay record belongs to the Granite Marlins who once again broke their own record with a new time of 1:32.71 in the 200 free relay. Congratulations to Granite's team of Cooper Ackerly, Crash Ackerly, Sydney Branch, and Patrick Puzon for capping our RMAL season off with such an exciting finish. Best wishes to you all!
