Six of nine TNT swimmers competing at the Terrapin senior meet in Concord during the first weekend of November qualified for a second swim at the meet. Our nine swimmers were among over 600 who competed at the meet. Thirty swimmers returned per event as finalist and Thomas Brown (50 free), Wesley Coles (100 fly & 100 breast), Hannah Giles (100 breast), Sam Hansen (200 breast, 100 breast & 500 free), Colin Landweer (100 free & 500 free) and Nathan Rhea (200 breast & 100 breast) were among them.

A sole new Sectional cut was achieved by Sam Hansen who improved nearly three seconds in the 1000 freestyle to a 10:10.42 finishing in 19th place in that event and setting a new team record with an improvement over his record setting performance at Winter Invite last December. Triton top finishers were our distance milers who included Nathan Rhea finishing 11th with a 17:05.58 and new team record by swimming nearly 11 seconds faster than his record set at Winter Invite last year, along with Sam Hansen who finished 13th with a 17:07.50. The largest time drop came from Alex Hansen who qualified for and swam the 1650 freestyle event and improved over 55 seconds from his previous time and placing 27th overall.

Our nine swimmers also included Bryan Brown and eleven year old Mallory Korenwinder.
