JD Koster tops the performance list for the three TNT swimmers who competed at the December Sectional meet at East LA College. He swam to the highest finish of the three, and improved three of four swims that included two time trial events. JD’s top finish was 31st in the 200 fly in a meet where the top 24 swimmers advance to a final heat. His 1:55.68 was nearly a two second improvement, and slides under the short course Sectional time standard for his first time in the event where he maintained a long course qualifying time. During time trials, JD also improved his 200 IM to a 1:57.40, and 200 breaststroke to a 2:11.98.
Preston Niayesh was our only swimmer who was eligible to swim three events in the meet, and he had the next highest finish of our team of three, placing 40th in the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:15.77 which is his second fastest meet performance in the event. Alsonso Escobedo was entered into two events, and his highest finish was 54th in the 400 IM after swimming a time of 4:17.63 in the preliminary heats, and posting his second fastest time on record.
