I know you are always looking for tidbits. How is this one?
At the Central Zones Championship at the Spire Institute Aug.
2-4 in Geneva, Ohio, Hannah Foster of the Ohio’s Cincinnati Marlins
and Julia Newbould of the Lake Erie’s Swim Strongsville – two 13 year
olds – entered the 50 free with same meet entry time of 27.87. During the
Saturday morning prelims, in two separate heats, the girls tied with a time
of 27.95. Then, during finals – out of lanes 2 and 6 – the girls tied again,
finishing fourth in 27.74. It was a best time for both swimmers. What are the
odds and chances of that happening? It is a unique way to form a friendship.
They are looking forward to competing against each other in short course
when the Swim Strong team will be traveling south to Cincinnati for the
Marlins’ meet in January.
