Meet Recap – 2017 Alexandria Tropical Splash

Eleven Club Tribe swimmers came together on January 29 for the Alexandria Tropical Splash, and we had a great time on deck and at the MGM National Harbor casino afterwards.  Highlights included outstanding Club Tribe debuts from Marina Falcone, Carter Head and Liz Baugher and a Coconut Relay free-for-all, in which Rich Williams, Michael Lovett and Gabby Mizerak held off a furious challenge from two other Club Tribe relays to win their THIRD consecutive Coconut Relay championship.  It’s a three-peat, and we may be looking at a minimum eight-peat.

In the 200 Free Relay, the Club Tribe Women (Marina, Lindsay, Katie and Liz — 1:55.08) and Men (Carter, Scott, Dan and Kevin — 1:33.30) swam to victory.  In perhaps the most exciting race of the day, the Club Tribe Mixed 200 Medley Relay (Gabby, Rich, Michael and Marina) beat all comers — including a solid all-male team from Arlington Masters — with a 1:47.79.
