Dynoswim loves sharing stories about other programs and all levels of competitive swimming. The Savannah College of Art and Design led by Head Coach Scott Rabalais is no exception and they're obviously off to another great year. Read what Coach Scott has to say about the first (intrasquad) meet of the year:
The competitive season is underway for the SCAD Swimming Bees, and it started with a "Bang!" at the Intrasqaud Pentathlon on Saturday, October 13. The annual meet was held at the Daffin Park Pool, home of the team until the Chatham County Aquatic Center renovations are complete in a matter of days!
The women were led by freshman Stephanie McNicol, who took the overall title and had the fastest overall time in the 200-yard free in 1:59.09. Other women's event winners were Rachel Fritts (100 fly - 1:01.22), Julie Glaser (100 back - 1:03.44), Liz Roberts (100 breast - 1:10.75) and Cassie Dixon (50 free - 24.87). Cassie's 50 free was a Pentathlon record.
Freshman Nat Emmett posted the fastest cumulative time among the men and also had the fastest time in two events (200 free - 1:50.47 and 100 breast - 1:00.68). His breaststroke swim was a new Pentathlon record. Vitali Pushkar-Verbitsky, who will be eligible as of winter quarter, set a meet record with his win in the 100 fly in 51.35, while also winning the 100 back in 56.56. Danny Recordon won the 50 free in 22.00, setting a new meet record.
