Novice & Bronze Reports

From Coach Porter:


We have split our novice swimmers into three groups. Working with these smaller groups will help us catch more mistakes and get swimmers more feedback. Our ten and under swimmer did a fantastic job at Little Splashers! I am also excited about all the entries for our next swim meet on Halloween weekend. I will be out of town that weekend, but I wish you all the best of luck!


The technique of the bronze swimmers is looking awesome! Our next meet is Halloween weekend, and we will be working on starts and turn before then. We will also be working on using the clock more and putting on sets on time intervals to prepare for silver.

From Coach Huffman:

The Gold group is really getting back into shape with our new dryland regiment. Improving our core strength will continue to be a focus throughout this short course season. Now that we have learned the routine, prepare to have things change up every three to four weeks so that we can "shock" the system and continue making improvements.

I want everyone going to November swim meets to enter at least one 200 yard event and one distance event. Lets see where we are now, so we can see our improvement in February.

Mansfield to Centenary

Former Mansfield HS swimmer Cara Loria ('09) now swims for Butch Jordan at Centenary College in Shreveport.

Although the workout groups are different in college, Cara says the training she's doing under Jordan is very similar to what she was used to under MAC head coach Cody Huckabay.

Cara's been juggling her classwork - she's majoring in biology - while training with the distance group this fall.

Loria will return to the DFW area for a meet against Austin College (Sherman) on October 24. Centenary's schedule is here.
