Results from timed 25s
Over the last several weeks, we've been timing many of our swimmers in 25-yard events. Some swimmers were not timed if they did not attend practice on these particular days.

Especially with our younger swimmers, we do not emphasize "outcomes" like times, as much as we do process and technique. But early-season times, particularly in freestyle and backstroke, can provide helpful benchmarks.

You'll find the results of our timing sessions here.
