Congratulations to our 10 seniors who were honored at the final home meet of the season against Oberlin College on Saturday. We will miss this group of great people and wish them the best in all their future endeavors.
The team wrapped up arguably the greatest training trip in team history yesterday when we returned to Ohio. The final few days were spent working hard and playing hard. The team enjoyed a final hike up the Wind Cave trail, a second team dinner at the Halle's home, and a final night out in Old Town Scottsdale. Training Trip 2018 will definitely go down in the books as one to remember!
We are 6 days into Training Trip 2018 and the team is putting in some serious work. Just today the team swam 2 workouts, lifted, and took part in two intense dryland team challenges. We wrapped the day up with dinner in the Tempe Marketplace which meant Coldstone for most people (including coaches). Looking forward to the next few days!
The team is 4 days into training Trip 2018 in beautiful Mesa, Arizona. The weather has been ideal, the training has been tough, and the adventures have been amazing. So far the team has traveled to the Grand Canyon, hiked Camelback Mountain, and survived the Senior Practice. The team is successfully working hard and having fun doing it. We are looking forward to the remainder of the trip and seeing what else this team can accomplish. For the day-to-day behind the scenes look at the team be sure to follow ONU Swimming & Diving on Twitter.
We had an unbelievable mid-season invite meet at Wooster. 32 life-time best times were achieved: 5 times what was achieved last season at this meet. We had approximately 95% season best times and scores. On the boards, Braden Kuhn was only 2.4 points away from a NCAA Regional cut and in the pool, Nolan Huey broke his own school record in the 200 BK with a 1:52.98. Orange team won the play-dough challenge and of course, the ice baths were cold!
