“At our younger level, both of the Fulps, George, Zobl, and Anderson train with Coach Andreea Ianoli-Mitrofan. They are doing phenomenal in their development. Coach Andreea was a Romanian Swimming National Champion in the 800 Free, 400 IM, and 200 Breaststroke. Her college thesis was written on the training of the Female Swimmer in the 800 Meter Freestyle.

“All of our kids swam well, some of the older kids were off a bit from their personal bests, and that is too be expected with where we are at in the training cycle we are following. The older ones are looking forward to the State High School Meet and USA Swimming Sectionals, and will be tapered for that. Overall our older girls, Chelsa Messinger, Katie Mize, and Mary Catherine Binkley are progressing very well with their training.”
