Five TNT swimmers competed at the Los Angeles Invitational hosted at USC during the third weekend of July. Wesley Coles, Sam Hansen, Colin Landweer, Chris Nolan and Nathan Rhea competed at this meet that served as a tune-up for Sectionals. Sam and Nathan were returning athletes while Wesley, Colin and Chris made their first appearance at the meet.
Wesley Coles swam away with not only the largest improvement (over 17 seconds in his 1500 freestyle), but was the only swimmer who improved 100% of his times. Chris Nolan had the next highest improvement percentage at 67%. At a meet that hosted primarily college-level athletes, our highest place finish remained in the 30s. Wesley Coles finished 30th in the 1500 freestyle (17:02.91) and 34th in the 200 meter fly (2:09.53), while Sam Hansen finished 36th in the 1500 freestyle (17:20.72) and 39th in the 800 free (9:01.24).
