The Halloween Practice

This Halloween, we enjoyed Coach Anne's Annual Pumpkin set. Before practice, Anne puts sets on slips of paper, folds them, and places the tricks and treats into a pumpkin. The team then elects a swimmer to draw the next set out of the pumpkin. Some of the tricks included a 1,000 for time and 8 x 100's fasted interval possible while the treats included the Oreo Relay, 8-minutes of starts, and, everyone's favorites, warm down and go home. The video below will show you how this year's pumpkin set went!

Tigers post SCAC top times

In our opening meet, our Tigers put up a great showing that included some excellent swims and line-ups. Our women posted top-10 SCAC times in the 200 Medley Relay, 100 Fly, 200 Fly, 200 Free. This early in the season, Coach Anne was very happy with our team's progress and their overall performance. While the Big Cat women (WCSU doesn't have a men's team) didn't get the "W" against the Western Colorado State Mountaineers, our times and scores are early indicators of an amazing season to come.
