VAST Swimmers

VAST gathers at the end of the pool to cheer on teammate Madeleine Eisenbeisz in the 400-yard individual medley at the Sioux City Sharks Invite last weekend..

The Vermillion Area Swim Team swam at the Sioux City Sharks Invite this past weekend.

“VAST had another extraordinary weekend in the pool,” said head coach David Lind. “We competed at a two day invite with teams from Nebraska, South Dakota, and Iowa. Overall we had another 39 personal bests for the team.”

Madeleine Eisenbeisz (11) swan six personal bests at the invite.

“Madeleine had an amazing meet,” said coach D. Lind. “She is one of the swimmers who aged up before the season and has been working hard to get some state times.”

Eisenbeisz swam and won the 400-yard individual medley. She came within 15 seconds of qualifying in the event only offered at state for those 13 years and older.

“She has set herself up very nicely for next winter season,” said coach D. Lind. “It was a phenomenal swim, and she is really showing herself to be a distance swimmer with how she has swam the longer events this season.”

Eisenbeisz also placed third in the 500 freestyle.

Mia Barnett (10) and Emma Lind (7) each improved their best times in five events. E. Lind placed second in the 100 free and improved her time to qualify for the Midwest Regional Meet in Minneapolis at the end of March. This is her fourth event qualified for the regional meet.

E. Lind also earned the silver in the 100 free, 200 free, 50 backstroke, and was third in the 25 back.

Ayden Rosener (12) won the 100 back and finished third in the 50 free.

Ryder Henriksen (7) earned the silver in the 100 free, 25 breaststroke, 50 breast, and in the 25 butterfly.

“It was great seeing so many personal bests for the swimmers this weekend because this was the last meet for many of them,” said coach D. Lind.

VAST’s next stop is State. The State B Meet will be February 21- 23 in Mitchell, where swimmers have a final chance to qualify in events for the State A Meet in Watertown February 27 - March 1.
