We could not be happier with how the Condors swimmers began the competitive season at York, October 10-12 and this past weekend at our home Fall Festival. With the high level of competition that we faced in both meets, it was inspiring to see how our swimmers were able to rise to the occasion and show that we are certainly a team to be reckoned with. Above and beyond the personal accolades, which many are outlined below, we wanted to take the time to credit our swimmers for their behavior and camaraderie throughout the meet sessions. With three locations and so many new swimmers at each, it is special when we see all of our kids coming together under the Condors banner having fun and supporting one another. в€ћ100 PERCENT CLUB в€ћ 100% Best Times YORK Itay Bachar Erin Bean Jonathan Cho Katherine Chung Jimmy Dwyer Michael Dwyer Isabella Fountain Cori Freeman Kaitlyn Gazzara Charles Hicks Joseph Lee Taylor Negast Anais Olivier Kate Pittignano Madison Remigio Skylar Rosenberg Sara Takiguchi Daniel Trincher Maxwell Watson Jake Agranovich Darcy Anselmi Laura Arciniegas Riya Balachandran Jaden Bascon Brooke Batelli Dean Batelli Elizabeth Berard Alexandra Block Henry Carrera Joshua Chamak Sean Chen Stephen Chen Isabella Chiulli Thomas Cho Katherine Chung CONDORS FALL FESTIVAL Ryan Chung Christopher Crimi Mikayla Cruz Nicole Damore Brendan Distefano Matilyn Dixon James Dwyer Krista Dwyer Michael Dwyer Timothy Fagan Alexandra Feeley Isaiah Fernandez Aidan Fernandes Edward Fominykh Maximillan Fominykh Joshua Fonseca Danae Fourie Corissa Freeman Kaitlyn Gazzara Sean Guerrero Justin Han David Hao Kayla Healy Bryan Ho Tyler Iorizzo Kibeom Jeon Yungchan Jun Pavel Kelley Benjamin Kim Doyee Kim Janis Kirsis Daniel Koehler William Lee Ethan Lin Faith Mallon Nikolai Mayarov Peter Mayarov Mia McClafferty Michael McGillycuddy Molly McGourty Joel Mendoza Alexandra Merone Matthew Merone Patricia Merone Sophie Miller Sungjune Moon Katherine Mosca Kristina Organista Alicia Park Jessica Park Ben Paseltiner Clarisse Pierre Dorisse Pierre Kate Pittignano Max Portnoy Katya Raskin Liam Ridge Justin Ryu Erik Sanchez Michael Shaari Andrew Song Jacklyn Vandermel Rivindu Wijedoru James Wu Hannah Yang Matthew Zhao Katherine Zhao в€ћ EVENT WINNERS в€ћ YORK Grace Dwyer Isabella Fountain Trystan Ng Meghan Ramundo Daniel Trincher Eugene Shen Kelli OвЂ™Shea Taylor Lawson 9-10 11-12 11-12 11-12 11-12 11-12 13-14 Senior 50 BK, 50 FR 50 FR 400 IM 500 FR 100 BR 400 IM 50 FR 100 BR CONDORS FALL FESTIVAL Grace Dwyer Ethan Lin Thomas Cho Christian Kim Andrew Song Isabella Fountain Eugene Shen Daniel Trincher Maeve McArdle David Jun Carly Cummings Kyle Iorizzo 10/U 10/U 10/U 10/U 10/U 11-12 11-12 11-12 13-14 13-14 Senior Senior 50 FR 200 FR 50 BK 50 BR 100 BR, 100 IM, 200 IM 50 FR 200 FR 500 FR 200 IM 100 FR, 200 FR 50 FR, 100 FR, 1000 FR, 200 BR, 200 FL 1000 FR IMPORTANT NEWS REGARDING VOLUNTEER HOURS: 1.

The school has informed us that there is a valve that was getting stuck making to pool water temperature rise to un-swimable tempatures. They thought that they had fixed the problem and came to find out that they had not. This resulted in replacing the part. This new part is now having the same issue as the original one. They have looked into it again and have again ordered replacement parts. At this time WCC has those new parts ordered and are waiting for their arrival. We will continue to monitor the water temperature the best that we can as we wait on these additional new parts. Felix Festa Locker Rooms: We have had a couple instances where locker room behavior is not up to the expectations of Condors Swimming. While left unsupervised in the locker rooms, swimmers are still representatives of the team and must act accordingly. 1. No horseplay, improper language or mistreatment of the facility or others will be tolerated. 2. Do not leave any items unattended. If you wish to use a locker while in the pool, bring a lock or take your belongings onto the pool deck securely sealed. 3. Please report all incidents of misconduct to a coach immediately. Parents, we understand that these are the actions of the few, but the locker rooms are a big part of our program and we do not want our privileges taken away. Any and all support you can offer with these issues is greatly appreciated.

The Condors Swim Club earned a visit from USA Swimming Master Coach Consultant Ed Spencer. Visits are selected by USA Swimming and are earned by clubs with world-ranked athletes. Coach Spencer spent four days with the Condors coaches and swimmers from September 24th through the 27th. Ed Spencer has been a Master Coach Consultant with USA Swimming since 2005. He has been the Head Coach of some of the NationвЂ™s top teams, including Dynamo Swim Club, Reno Aquatic Club and Industry Hills Aquatic Club. His swimmers won many 18 & Under National Championships, set 10 American Records, and won more than 20 USA Swimming National titles. His swimmers represented the USA on the 1980, 1984 and 1988 Olympic Teams. Coach Spencer met with and spoke to our entire staff over the course of his visit. He also attended the Condors coachвЂ™s staff meeting. He spoke to all levels of Condors swimmers about different topics such as вЂњYou are part of a great teamвЂќ, вЂњHow important your coaches areвЂќ, вЂњUnderwater training and streamlining and kicking off the wallsвЂќ, and вЂњHow do you want to be remembered? вЂ“ being the best teammateвЂќ. This is the third visit from USA Swimming in the past year. We have also had Scott Colby and Peter Clark spend time with the Condors.
