Turns Matter

It was a very successful weekend for Lock Haven Y USA swimmers with some dropped times and age group winners.  Great start for the beginning of the season.  Full weekend results can be viewed here.

It is also a good way to gauge strengths and weakness to determine where some fine tuning needs to be done.  For example, Lock Haven's Emma Butzler did fine between the flags in the 100 yard backstroke.  From the wall to the flags (and just a little beyond) was a different story.  Watch the video to see how she (lane 4) lost yards on her turn to the Nittany Lion Aquatic Club's Ashley Carper in lane 3.
