PKWY comes home with individual Futures Titles

Posted by Chris Etherington on Sep 09 2022 at 08:22AM PDT

Futures was an exciting way to finish off the long course season for the group. All seven members of the squad qualified for at least one finals swim over the course of the meet. We had a 70% Lifetime Best Times at Futures and finished 13th out of 64 teams in the combined team race. This group was able to bounce back from Sectionals and prepare themselves for one more great meet. They were able to take advantage of the opportunity in front of them and capitalize with great prelims and finals swims. Every session, this group brought great energy and belief that they were ready for great swims. Great way to end the summer with this small group representing and competing against some of the best club AND college teams in the Midwest Region! Before I list off the highlights for each person, a special congratulations to Matthew Judkins who has your Futures CHAMPION in the 200 Fly and runner-up in the 100 Fly. Matthew set the 17-18 and Open Boys 100 Fly Record taking down Tom Jaeger’s record from 1983 in addition to qualifying for US Open in the 100/200 Fly.
