Well it took a few seasons of hard work but the LaCamas HeadHunters Swim Team now has not 1 but 2 State Champions! Congratulations to Nabhil Kalahiki (10) and Abby Crowson (11) who both claimed Gold Medals at Oregon 12&U Long Course Championships this weekend. Nabhil also took home 2 Bronze Medals (200 Free and 50 Back), as well as rounding his 6 events out with two 4th place finishes and a 6th. Abby really stepped up at the meet. She qualified for finals (top 6 swimmers in each age group only at this meet) in all 6 of her events. After a fine first day where she took home a silver (50 Back), bronze (100 Fly) and grueling 5th place finish in the 200 Back, she bounced back on day 2 with renewed energy and took bronze in the 100 back, 4th in the 200 Free and then… Gold Medal Swim swim in the 50 Fly, dropping an amazing 3.11 seconds going 32.97 to win the 50 LCM Fly. Amazing stuff.
Jack Harris (10), along with Nabhil was part of one of the most exciting swims of the meet when he lead the 200 Free for over 180 meters! He ultimately finishes 2nd by a mere .09 taking home a well deserved silver medal with Nabihl “joining him on the podium” taking the bronze! Way to represent Boys! Yup Yup! Not to be out done Sruthi Ravi (12), Khalifha Kalahiki (12), and Bailey Segall (11) also swam outstanding over both days with Sruthi finishing 4th in both the 50 and 100 Backstrokes, Khaliefa finishing 5th in both the 200IM and 100 Back, and Bailey taking home 3 medals with her 6th in the 100 Free and 100 Back and 5th in the 200 Free. Rounding out the fantastic Headhunter weekend were fine finishes by Charlotte Baker (10) in the 50 Back, Camdyn Segall (8) and Jordan Harris (8).
Great Weekend Team Green.
