Total Force swimmers compete at conference meet


Total Force swimmers Sam Ahrendt, William Jacobsen, Larson Delaney and Benjamin Dubois display medals they after swimming the medley relay.

The Fort McCoy-based Total Force Swim Club competed at the Conference swim meet in Medford Saturday.

The team launched its season Oct. 15 with 47 swimmers preparing for nine scheduled swim meets. Nineteen qualified to swim at Divisionals in Rice Lake two weeks ago.

Sixteen Total Force swimmers made the trip to Medford, where medals were awarded to the top seven in relays and top nine in individual events.

Swimmers have an opportunity to register with USA Swimming to compete at the Regional Swim Meet in Fond du Lac Feb. 21-23, when they get one more chance to qualify for State or Midwest.

“It’s the final countdown,” Total Force coach Julia Koput said.

Assistant coach Rylee Molter added, “We are focusing our attention to the final nine training for Regionals.”

Coaches are gearing their workout focus on fine tuning breath control, faster flip turns, endurance, speed, strong starts and strong finishes to help the swimmers maximize their swims.
