Twelve TNT swimmers competed at the IMX Meet held in Bakersfield on May 12th. Swimmers needed to compete in all five IMX events in order to earn a high point award at the meet. Nine year old Danielle Albright was one of two TNT swimmers to enter five events, and became the high point recipient for the 10-under division by swimming to four 2nd place finishes and one 4th place finish.

Our team had four event champions at the meet that included Chris Hansen who took home the win in the 13-over 400 IM (5:13.93). Fourteen year old Mallory Korenwinder won the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:53.22, while nine-year old Priscilla Niayesh was the champion in the 100 fly for the 10-under division (1:38.62). Chris Nolan was our only double winner, and he did this in both the 200 breaststroke (2:38.69) and 200 fly (2:13.59) events in the 13-over division.

Five swimmers improved every event they entered, thereby maintaining a 100% improvement rate when considering those times that had been previously recorded with the team. Josh Avila and Morgan Coddington each improved one event, while sister Paige Coddington improved two of two events. Chris Hansen improved all three events he entered, while Priscilla Niayesh improved all four events that she had entered.
