It was another good meet for Stacy Biegler and company.
“We had another great night in the pool with many great swims and dives. I was able to move the girls around to different events than they normally swim and got a lot of great swims out of them. With moving girls around, it helps me see different potential in each event and athlete, which provides me with more insight on how to make the strongest lineups,” stated Biegler.
The Magic finished with the best time in nearly every single event. It was quite the meet for the girls and look to continue their form going through the early part of the season.
