Seven TNT swimmers swam to an 18th place team finish among 37 teams that scored at the 2012 Southern California Swimming Senior Meet hosted by Fullerton Aquatic Swim Team in Fullerton. After setting the team record in the 13-14 girls 200 fly as a 2:11.55 at the Terrapin meet this past November, fourteen year old Emily Goodbar of Selma swam to a consolation finish of 14th place, and smashed her previous record with a 2:09.67. Her time currently ranks 71st in the National Age Group top-10 ranking among 14-year old girls for 2012.

Chris Nolan led our team in the number of second swims earned with two consolation swims that included a 12th place finish in the 200 fly (1:57.02) and an 18th place finish in the 200 breaststroke (2:16.64), along with two bonus finishes: 22nd place in the 100 fly (54.84) and 28th place in the 100 breast (1:03.89). Mallory Korenwinder led the team in points from individual events with her two consolation finishes: 12th in the 100 breaststroke (1:07.70) and 17th in the 200 breaststroke (2:28.12).
