The mighty Snow Leopards emerge victorious for the first time at SAISA Swimming!
Lincoln wrote a little piece of history this past week by winning the SAISA Swimming Championships for the first time in our school’s history. The swimmers pushed through their limits in training and this was evident throughout the meet with some amazing performances. All the long hours in the pool, and the motivational team talks, shaped the swimmers into being the mature individuals they showed themselves to be during the meet. Every swimmer swam some personal bests and accomplished their goals. This meet brought the community together and created an even stronger bond among the members of the swim family and Lincoln family as a whole.
Niharika Tuladhar and Nasir Hussain set SAISA records for the 100 breast and 200 IM respectively in their own age groups. The 13-14 girls broke the SAISA records for the 200 free relay and the 400 free relay; they also set the new SAISA record for the 200 medley relay. Shreetika Singh and Tisa Sakya broke the SAISA records for the 100 IM and 200 Breaststroke events for their own age groups. The pool seemed to literally heat up with some sizzling swims!
Our teams finished 2nd in the 10-12 girls, 10-12 boys, 13-14 boys and 15-19 boys and 1st in the 13-14 girls and 15-19 girls. We also finished 2nd in girls overall and 1st in boys overall. Finally, we finished 1st overall as SAISA Champions. A huge achievement!
With SAISA Swimming being hosted in Nepal for the first time, Lincoln faced a challenge to accommodate all the swimmers and coaches. But with the amazing support from the community, it was worth it. Thank you everyone!
