In a sport that values improvement as athletes creep ever so closer to their individual goals, eleven TNT swimmers maintained a 100% improvement rate while competing in an early October meet held at the El Diamante pool in Visalia. The team’s improvement rate was led by: Sienna Abernathy, Damian Brown, Desmond Brown, Ivy Freeman, Alyssa Logan, Madison Martin, Megan Ridenour, Brittney Vierra, Blake Wong, Bryan Wong and Bryce Wong.

In addition to maintaining perfect improvement rates, Sienna Abernathy and Damian Brown also swam undefeated, with Sienna winning all four of her events in the 6-under division. Eight year old Damian took home gold in all three of his events. Sienna and Damian are joined by10-year old Peyton Costa who had a clean sweep of eight events in the 9-10 division, Preston Niayesh who won all four of his events in the 11-12 boys division, and 17-year old Chris Nolan taking home seven first place finishes in the 15-over division.

One team record was broken at the early October meet, and that came in the 15-over girls 100 breaststroke event. After setting the record in Selma with a time of 1:07.66, Mallory Korenwinder swam to the 12th fastest time in the nation for a 15-year old girl with 1:07.29 at El Diamante.
