Her time of 1:59.07 in the 200-yard freestyle was also a new Baylor Swim Club 11-12 girls team record. The previous record was set back in 2001 by Erin Simpson (2:01.57). Summers also placed fourth in the 100-yard butterfly and 200-yard IM.

As we get into the fall and winter season the weather is beginning to get cooler, especially in the evenings. The coaching staff continues to chastise far too many swimmers for arriving in flip flops. While it is now a safety requirement due to COVID-19 to arrive in your swimsuit and leave practices in your swimsuit athletes can still layer themselves with warm clothes both before and after practices. Muscles require good care and thrive when pampered. Keeping them warm begins the recovery process after a demanding practice. We thank you for your support.
What exciting news! The Baylor Swim Club has been awarded by United States Swimming the distinction of being a nationally ranked Silver Medal swim club in the USA Swimming Club of Excellence program for the 2022 swimming season!
What exactly does this mean? This means that Baylor Swim Club is recognized as one of the top clubs in the country based on organizational professionalism and athletic performance. To qualify for this award, Baylor had to submit an extensive report to United States Swimming, documenting club professionalism as well as both national and world-class performance.
New folders have been created for the 2021-2022 season and are available. All awards from meets and past meets will be filed in the athletes’ folders on the pool deck. Each athlete on the Baylor Swim Club should have a folder where these awards will be placed after meets. Please have your child check the folders on the pool deck after practices. The folder boxes are located on a table next to the staff office on the pool deck. If for some reason your child does not have a folder, please email Coach Brian.
