Nah it’s not a reach. They swim for the best team in Colorado and have both dropped lots of time this year.

Elevations didn’t develop their fast swimmers. They were the fast kids from other clubs. Once their first group of kids graduates I doubt they will be bragging as much.

Luke Miller was a 1:48.58 before joining now he goes a 1:33.41. How’s that for development?

Nah ea definitely built those swimmers. Before they started swimming with the ea coaching staff they were slow. The other clubs they came from didn’t make them fast that’s why they left…

The Elevation boys dropped a lot of time in the 800 free relay, with everyone on the relay dropping time, breaking their own state record by 7 seconds.
