The DACA Age Group Team closed out an incredible short course season with an outstanding performance at the Spring Far Western Championships in Morgan Hill! Led by individual titles from Stefanie Ting, Jessica Chu, and Daniel Marella, as well as strong relays, and a dominating showing by the 11-12 Boys, DACA finished 4th as a team, in one of the closest Far Western Team Competitions ever! Relays were strong across the board, highlighted by a win in the 13-14 Boys 800 Free Relay from the team of Michael Auld, Bradley Chen, Sean Hoerger, and Felix Chiun. Competing in one of the fastest Age Group meets in the country, DACA Swimmers were up to the challenge, posting 105 lifetime best times.

3 days of competition in Federal Way, WA left us with 117 Lifetime Best Times! We are also leaving Husky with 6 NCSA Junior Qualifiers in 29 events! 

And just as important as all the great drops we had individually, we placed 5th in the club division, with some extremely fun friendly competition between many Sierra Nevada and Pacific teams that made the trip. Our relays played a huge roll, and we littered the area behind the blocks every event with cheering and team spirit. WAY TO GO DACA!!!

SHS Gold Girls Show their DACA Spirit!

 

Gold girls from the Saratoga HS site got their spirit on! Danielle Panconi, with the help of her mom, organized the girl's group to purchase white DACA team shirts so the girls could get together to tie-die the shirts in team colors. One day after practice, the girls decorated the back of their own shirt with each name painted in gold puff paint.  The girls could be seen at the Sunnyvale Halloween Meet sporting their team shirts and team spirit cheering for many of their DACA teammates as they led our club in a sterling team performance. One can see by their expressions that these girls show their spirit and enthusiasm, bonding as a group. Maybe their example can lead our swimmers to joining in on the fun and demonstrating new and creative ways to show how they can make DACA ROCK!

On the women's side, Hayes Hyde placed 2nd in the 100 Fly, while Darcie Anderson picked up a 6th place finish in the 100 Breast and 3rd place finish in the 200 Breast.

Several National Group swimmers then moved on to the National Championships in Palo Alto, where three (Erich Peske - 100/200 Fly, Laurence Delisle - 200 Free/200 Back, Shayne Fleming - 50/100 Free) all qualified for the 2012 Olympic Trials.
