Of the 25 swimmers on the roster, 其中7人是高年级学生,只有2人是高年级学生(薇薇安·莫尔纳和凯蒂·波洛克). They also have six more swimmers than last season, 辛格在他执教小红帽的第二年继续云顶yd222线路检测这个项目,他感到非常自豪.

“这绝对是世界上最好的感觉,”辛格说. “在我任职的这些年里,招聘人数很低,或者没有多少人感兴趣. 当你有兄弟姐妹和朋友的朋友之类的时候,你总是期望他们以波浪和循环的方式来来去去. 突然有一群新的孩子加入我们的队伍真是太棒了. 他们有自己的想法和个性,可以加入到团队中, and it really improves the team dynamic.”

10月14日,“小红”在埃尔米拉邀请赛(Elmira invational)上进行了本赛季最引人注目的演出, 排名第四,在A类学校中排名第三, competing hard against powerhouses Corning and Horseheads. Singer pointed out a few keys to their success.

“首先,我们让每个人都很健康,所以这一直是一个很大的奖励,”辛格说. “我也认为我们看到了我们在赛季早期投入的大量努力的巨大回报, and it’s all coming together. We want to preserve that momentum, 我们真的很期待在分组赛上的表现.”

The standout swimmer in Elmira was Ivy Bascom. The junior won a trio of events, including the 200-meter individual medley, the 100-meter breaststroke, and the 400-meter freestyle relay along with Lea Teschl, Alice Clapp, and Blue Maralani. 巴斯科姆来自一个有天赋的游泳家庭,她的哥哥瑞安在去年夏天毕业之前在男子队表现出色. That same expertise has been on full display for Ivy.

“去年,我们主要集中在蛙泳上,”辛格说. “This year, she spent the whole offseason training. She did a couple of big meets, as well, 所以我认为这只是今年更加成熟的结合,所有的休赛期训练和大量的努力工作.”

Clapp is another one of the top returning swimmers, 他在200米个人混合泳和100米仰泳中获得了第四组a级冠军. Clapp and Bascom are two of the team captains, 辛格注意到他们如何加强了自己的领导角色.

“As we go through the years, people move up and move on, 我们通常都要从下层社会招募新人,” Singer said. “这些优秀的学生运动员都很有头脑. They know what they’re all about. They know what the team traditions are and stuff like that. 我觉得这真的有助于让人们尽早投入到项目中并坚持下去.”

在年轻才子方面,泰施尔和菲奥娜·布莱克利-阿米蒂奇已经在泳池中崭露头角. 特舍尔在德国度过了夏季训练,并在埃尔米拉邀请赛上赢得了200米自由泳冠军, while Blakely-Armitage has won multiple events in dual meets. 由于这对新生组合,小红帽的现在和未来都是光明的.

“Both are just incredibly talented swimmers,” Singer said. “他们在俱乐部里游泳已经很长时间了……共同的因素是他们付出了所有的努力。, just tons of yardage, tons of working on fundamentals, and it’s paying off in dividends.”

小红帽的焦点转移到了11月1日开始的预选赛上. 在康宁和马头的阻碍下,赢得团队冠军将是一场艰苦的战斗, 小红帽队已经为季后赛的精彩表现做好了准备.

“我认为我们还有很多工作要做,尤其是在一些年轻的游泳运动员身上,而不是在体能训练上,” Singer said. “It is really all about the little things, 随着时间的推移,当你累了的时候,那些小细节就会从你身边溜走, so we’ll be focusing on those for the last part of the season.”
