2016 Western Age Group Zones

Updated date: Thursday, October 6, 2016 - 11:15

Oregon Places 6th Overall At Western Age Group Zones!

Zones was held in Kearns, Utah and fun was had by all. Oregon placed 6th overall, very close to both Socal Swimming and San Diego.  Besides a little drizzle and one lightning storm weather was perfect for some fast swimming. Out of the 48 athletes representing Team Oregon we had 41 athletes who qualified for either an A or a B final, bringing major points to Oregon. Out of those 109 finals swims there were several Zone champion swims and a ton of kids moving up spots from their seed time. 19 of Oregon's 32 relays also scored in the top 8 position. Individual Zone Champions included Audrey Gringas (50fr), Kevin Keil (100br, 200br, 200IM), Tia Lindsay (200IM), Fay Lustria (200fly)!

Besides the performance accomplishments of the meet, this group of kids had a tremendously beneficial experience having to come together as a team and learning to support not just their home team friends but all the new friends from around Oregon. They truly felt the pride of representing Oregon and showing half the nation how great it is to be a part of the Oregon swimming community. The team really gelled over the course of the weekend, and their positive energy helped them achieve that 6th place trophy!

Thank you to the great coaches, Ben Talbott, Justin Morin, Martha Olson-Madrigal, Jill Black and Tristan Briggs. The kids instantly took to them all and they were integral in keeping the swimmers happy and hungry for success.

BIG thanks go to the behind the scenes staff of chaperone Liz Duyck, chaperone Lili Loo, and Team Manager Heather Thomas, whose indispensable work kept everyone fed, happy, and healthy. The great success of this trip can partly be credited to how hard these three worked behind the scene to make it go smoothly.

Lastly, thanks to all the coaches from around Oregon who let the Zone Staff be a part of their swimmer's journey and growth as successful individuals both in and out of the water!
