Summer 2013 Age Group State – Top 16 Finishes

Congratulations to the RIO Age Group State Team for a 7th place team finish in the State Championship Meet! Everyone should be congratulated on weathering a very long weekend (longest State Meet ever) with all sorts of weather conditions to deal with. When the meet came to a close RIO had 2 State Champions, 4 new RIO Team Records (individual and 2 relays), 3 Northwestern Sectional cuts and numerous best times. Shea Burcham (11-12 Girls 100m Backstroke), and Joe Nicholls (13-14 Boys 200m Butterfly), each won their event and were crowned 2013 LC State Champions! Ben Quon broke his own 11-12 400m IM team record and broke his brother’s (Nick Quon) 11-12 200m Backstroke team record. Ben teamed up with Landon Driggers, Cristian Alvarado and James Nicholls to break the 12 & Under Boys 400m Freestyle Relay team record. Together, Maddie Seidl, Shelby Gertson, Madeleine Ramos and Naomi Vaughn broke the 13-14 Girls 800m Freestyle Relay team record. Maddie Seidl achieved a new Northwestern Sectional cut in the 200m Breaststroke and improved on her 200m Butterfly Sectional cut. Joe Nicholls improved on his 200m Butterfly Northwestern Sectional cut on the way to becoming State Champion in the 200m Butterfly.
