Permanent link for GVSU Club Swim at Ohio State University's Fall Invitational on October 20, 2021

After 587 days, Grand Valley State University’s swim club was finally able to compete again. The team traveled to Columbus, Ohio to attend Ohio State University’s Fall Invitational. There were fifteen other collegiate-level swim clubs competing. Of the teams in attendance, the GVSU swim club placed thirteenth with 66.5 points. 40.5 points belonged to the women of the GVSU swim club, putting them in eleventh place, and the remaining 26 points belonged to the men, putting them in twelfth place. Josh David was the high scorer for the men. David swam the 50 butterfly (24.78), 100 individual medley (1:00.24), and the 200 freestyle relay. Anna Cornell was the high scorer not only for the women but for the whole team. Cornell swam the 100 butterfly (1:08.89), 50 backstrokes (35.06), 25 freestyle (13.13), and the 200 medley relay. The team really enjoyed being able to get back in the pool again and put all of their training and hard work to good use. Newcomer Adam After said that for his first-ever college club swim meet, he really enjoyed the car ride to Ohio, the meet, and being able to compete at a Big 10 college. Another newcomer, Josie Kasmauski said it was one of the highlights of her year. GVSU Swim Clubs President Veronica Lidy commented, “For more than a year our team endured shortened practices and time trials instead of away meets, but competing at OSU made it all worth it. Our team had a great time running into friends from other schools, making new inside jokes, swimming at such a high-caliber facility, and above all else finally getting back into the spirit of competition. Swimming is all about perseverance and dedication to see results towards a goal. For the last year and a half we did just that and we got what we were after.” The team looks forward to competing at more meets in the near future.
