Barracudas Win Closest Meet of the Season
By Mayuri Jayaraman
The Barracudas definitely had a tense meet June 23. They visited the home pool of the Newark Bluefins at Newark Memorial High School. The meet started off cloudy and very cold in the morning; however the day got warmer as the meet progressed. The Cudas were eager to know the score throughout the meet, but the coaches would not whisper a word. In the end, the Barracudas brought themselves to another win, but the score was very close. It was 554 to 524. This has been the closest meet of the season, but the Barracudas will not let that stand in their way.
At this meet, a few swimmers improved their times. The following people improved their times by more than four seconds: in freestyle, David Lin improved his time by 4.63 seconds. In backstroke, Miguel Punzalan improved his time by 11 seconds, and Shreya Kaipa improved her time by 9.33 seconds. Also in backstroke, Hayden Crane improved his time by 4.17 seconds. In breaststroke, Elizabeth Deng improved her time by 4.65 seconds. In individual medley, Victoria Poole improved her time by 6.26 seconds and Melissa Ng improved her time by 6.22 seconds. Also in the Individual Medley event, Evan Huang improved his time by 5.5 seconds.
Very good job, all of you!!!
