We’re not sure what made this young Redwing team have such a great performance at the Conference Meet held at SJHS the last two days.  Maybe it was the home field advantage or the atmosphere of the packed crowd.  It could have been their desire to perform well at the last meet of the year.  Possibly it was all their hard work, early morning practices and dedication to training that paid off.  Our guess is that they did it for their Coach, in his last meet at St. Johns.  In any case, we counted 42 new personal records and it was a blast to watch.

Our choice for Swim of the Night:
Sam Hudgens – 100 Breastroke 1:07.87.  This is what happens when you don’t have the performance you were hoping for in the Diving event, but don’t let it define your meet.  Instead, you go out and take almost 4 seconds off your previous best time and blow away the field.  This time would have placed 7th if it was in the Championship Heat.

Thank you to Dewitt for hosting the meet at St. Johns and Congratulations to Okemos for their 1st place finish.  Okemos and Dewitt share the 2020 Conference title.  Thank you to all the fans for such a great showing of support, it was a meet to remember!  Congratulations to all our Redwings, they made us all proud.  Go Redwings!
