Blue Wave Take 3rd Place Trophy

Sunday April 15, 2018

Congratulations to the Blue Wave State Team on capturing the Third Place Trophy at the recent ILMSA State Short Course Championship Meet. With a roster of 49 swimmers, the Blue Wave put together some great individual swims and fantastic relay performances to come home with the third place hardware with a total of 2368 points.

A strong showing in the grueling 1000 Free on Friday Night put the Blue Wave in third place early in the meet. Saturday brought more strong Blue Wave swims in the 400 and 100 IMs, 200 Free, 50 Breaststroke, 50 Free, 200 Breaststroke, 100 Fly, and 100 back. The team finished the day still claiming third behind the Chicago Smelts with 77 swimmers, and the Swedish Fish with their squad of 91. Naperville, 51 strong, was close behind in fourth.

Sunday brought more pain with the 500 Free, 200 Fly (Ouch), 200 IM, 200 back, 100 Free, 100 Breaststroke, 50 Back, and 50 Fly! The Blue wave posted more great swims and were able to hang on to win the third place cup.

Congratulations to all the Swimmers on the Blue Wave 2017-2018 State Roster.
