2021 Honorees: Delaney O’Toole and Reef McMeeking

10 & Under Girls

Delaney O’Toole – Fox Chapel Killer Whales (Pittsburgh, PA)

O’Toole achieved 18 top-ten times (of 23 total events) in the 10-and-under age group during 2021. She led the nation in six events and ranked among the seven fastest swimmers in another 12 events. She began her rampage this summer in long course, finishing with the #1 IMX ranking among 10-year-olds for the 2021 LCM season. In the months that followed, she jumped to the top of the rankings thanks in large part to big performances at the Mark J. Braun Fall Classic. She wrapped up 2021 at the 59th Annual Pitt Christmas Meet, winning all her events (50/100/200/500 free, 50/100 back, 50/100 breast, 50 fly, and 100 IM) and taking home the High Point Award for 10&U girls.

O’Toole led the nation for 10-and-under girls in the SCY 500 free and 50 back and LCM 100/200/400 free and 100 back. She ranked #2 in the SCY 00 free and LCM 50 back, 50 fly, and 200 IM; #3 in the SCY 100/200 free, 100 back, and 200 IM and LCM 50 free; #4 in the LCM 100 fly; #5 in the SCY 200 IM; and #7 in the LCM 50 breast.

Always seems to be three camps on this topic…

  1. Parents and friends of the kids who are recognized are pleased
  2. Parents and friends of kids who aren’t recognized don’t really care
  3. Parents and friends of kids who aren’t recognized turn green

Facts are facts. You decide how much space they take up in your head.

Too bad NE swimming doesn’t believe 10 and unders are worth recognizing. They have no championship only a challenge. It is felt if you recognize young fast swimmers you will develop crazy parents

I distinctly remember a 9 year old showing up to that meet covered in cupping marks, so I think it’s safe to say that crazy swim parents are going to do their thing regardless of whether you call it a challenge or a championship.

The fact that you came here to complain about it being called a “challenge” not a “championship” maybe implies that the crazy parents will find a way regardless of what you call the meet.

So, I think that means that I agree with you???? That’s wild.
