Barracudas win over tough competitor
By Mayuri Jayaraman
The Barracudas welcomed the Chabot Marlins to their pool on Saturday, June 30. They knew that they were competing against one of the toughest teams in the league. Cloudy and very cold in the morning, the day got warmer as the meet progressed. The Cudas were eager to know the score throughout the meet, but coaches insisted that they would have to wait until end to know the result; Barracudas win 594 to 484, definitely well deserved. Preparations are starting now to prepare for Championships, the final meet of the season, where all of the teams in the league compete against one another.
At Saturday's meet, many swimmers improved their times. The following improved their times by more than four seconds: Freestyle, Christina Bean improved her time by 6.61 seconds; Backstroke, Sanah Bhardwaj improved her time by 11 seconds, and Roman Nathan improved his time by 7.54 seconds; Breaststroke, Eva Rachal and Christina Bean improved their time by over 27 seconds!; Individual Medley, Michael Chang and Calvin Mei improved their times by 7 seconds. Also in the Individual Medley event, Stephen Jeffery improved his time by 4.91 seconds. Very good job, all of you!!!
The Barracudas are excited to host the next meet against the Mission Highlands Sharks at their pool on Saturday, July 14.
