High point recognition was awarded to the top three point getters at the Merced meet in Chowchilla. TNT is very proud of the eight swimmers who were recognized for this accomplishment. The first place high point award winners went to ten year old Mallory Korenwinder with 74 points and four first place finishes, ten year old Jonathan Granada with 69 points and seven first place finishes, and sixteen year old Sam Hansen with 67 points and seven first place finishes. Runner up high points went to eight year old Savanah Nolan and thirteen year old Nathan Rhea. Third place high point winners included: eight year old Dax Korenwinder, ten year old Khloe McCarthy and fourteen year old Cori Hoover.

Two TNT swimmers had established new team records while at the Merced meet in Chowchilla. Thirteen year old Nathan Rhea swam only six events, but set new records in three of them. Nathan goes under his 1:05.27 record in the 100 breaststroke by breaking 1:05. The new record is now 1:04.90. The other two records that Nathan set were those that he had established while at the Tulare meet just recently. The 200 breaststroke record is now 2:19.29, improved from 2:20.88, and the 400 IM record is now 4:28.99 which is improved from 4:33.77 set in Tulare.

Twelve year old Christopher Nolan becomes the first 11-12 year old male swimmer to swim the 1000 freestyle at Chowchilla, thereby becoming the record holder in that event. Christopher sets the new record at 12:49.38. Christopher currently holds five short course team records: 1000 free, 200 fly, 200 back, 200 breast and 400 IM.
