Biggest Gain – Team RyanLochtesCamoShorts earned a whopping 24 points just in last night’s Finals! Huge swims from Tyler Clary and Claire Donahue added to Camo Shorts’ rocket to the top, while solid swims by Matt Ellis, Caitlin Leverenz, and Gia Delesandro also contributed to his total.
Most Improved – Team NathanAdriansChest transitioned from last place to 8th with the help from Beefy T (Tom Shields), Felicia Lee, and Michael Weiss. We’ll have to keep an eye on this team to see if she continues her rise to the top.
Best TrashTalk – The league was fairly civil during yesterday’s prelims and Finals. If anything, TeamRyanLochtesCamoShorts earned major bragging rights in having his swimmer, Shields, beat the GOAT in the Men’s 100 Fly. Plus, we all love cellies and Mr. Beefy T did NOT disappoint. (p.s. – we all still adore his new haircut)
Fan Notes – All of us were soooooooo happy for Beisel that she bounced back with such grace to win the 400IM. After the heartbreaking 2Back slip, she proved once again that she is a fierce competitor and TeamSOGO was super honored to have her on the last night’s Finals Roster.
