McCook swimmers begin summer season

Tuesday, June 6, 2006

GRANT -- The McCook YMCA Swim Team kicked off their summer season with a meet at Grant last Saturday.

This was a dual meet which provided a good introduction for beginning swimmers.

"This was a great chance for our first time swimmers to compete in a meet," said McCook YMCA swim coach Tracy Flaska.

"All the kids got to swim and place in their events. I was very pleased with their performances."

Many swimmers brought back first place finishes.

The Wood Family, consisting of Linda, Emily and Erica, brought home a total of six first place ribbons.

Erica Wood placed first in the 8 and under 50 yard freestyle, 8 and under 25 yard backstroke and the 8 and under 25 yard freestyle.

Linda Wood was the top winner in 50-yard freestyle and 25 yard backstroke in her age division.

The team of Emily Wood, Erica Wood, Linda Wood and Mackenzie Brennan won the open 100 yard free relay.

Also bringing home a first-place ribbon was Jessica Premer in the 9-10 girls 50 yard freestyle.

Next up for the McCook YMCA swimmers will be a meet in Trenton next Saturday.
