Week 5 Recap: Chesterbrook @Overlee

The Overlee competitive swim season has drawn to a close with a tough end to a terrific season. The Flying Fish fell to the Chesterbrook Tiger Sharks in the final meet of the season by a score of 188-232. As was to be expected, every race was very exciting, and, unfortunately, not enough of the close swims broke our way. While the score may not show it, the meet was incredibly close–Overlee had an unexpected lead after freestyle with numerous orange and white swimmers stepping up to score points they were not seeded to win. However, Chesterbrook closed the door in backstroke, and won the races they were expected to win for nearly the remainder of the meet. Overlee needed to make up a 20 point deficit, and was unable to cut into the Tiger Shark’s strength in the latter half of the meet.

Regardless of outcome, it was a fantastic morning–we had a great booster tailgate, and enjoyed our senior recognition ceremony before the meet. There was overwhelmingly more to celebrate this season than disappointments suffered, and most importantly the team and boosters had a ton of fun! We have thoroughly enjoyed covering the season, and look forward to keeping our boosters near and far up to date on all things Flying Fish!

Thank you Overlee swimmers, coaches, volunteers, and boosters!

Below are all the race videos from the meet–Overlee will be back next season looking to reclaim the league crown!
