On Saturday, June 2, the Glenmoor Stingrays welcomed the Mission Valley Barracudas to their home pool to kick off another exciting season of dual meets for the 2012 swim season. The day started with clouds covering the sky and then turned sunny before the meet concluded. The Barracudas spiritedly shouted their team's Color Shout before the meet started.
Throughout the meet, team points were very close, but in the end, the Barracudas were able to capture the win: 563 to 507.
At this meet, a number of competitors improved their times; Barracuda swimmers who bettered their time by more than four seconds included: Freestyle, Srikar Voleti improved his time by 5.56 seconds; Backstroke, Keon Abdollahian, took nearly 9 seconds off his time; Oliver Swanson took 7 seconds off his time; Breaststroke Gabriella Rachal improved her time by 5.75 seconds and in individual medley - one lap of each stroke - Annie Chiang took 7.59 seconds off her time.
Good job and congratulations to all of you!
The Barracudas look forward to their second dual meet of the season against the Kennedy Seals at Mission Valley Swim Club in one week.
