Junior Olympic Championships - July 2014

posted Jul 13, 2014, 6:56 AM by Pat Windschitl   [ updated Jul 14, 2014, 2:09 PM ]

We showed up to Peng"win" this meet. 

34 team records broken over 3 days! 

Friday night we had an incredible amount of finalists on the girls side. And most importantly, we had the largest and the loudest cheering section by far at the meet. We were deafening with our enthusiasm and it was amazing to see as a coach. There is nothing greater than seeing one of our athletes behind the block and 30+ of our swimmers, our teammates, our friends on the other side of the pool literally screaming  in encouragement. All our swimmers raced with pride, 

On the boys side, Zack "Attack" Chau was our top 8 finalist. This is Zack's first Junior Olympic meet and he's one of the younger boys at the meet at just turning 10 years old. I was incredibly proud to see the older boy's team come out to support him in force. You guys rallied around Zack and he did amazing because of it! Way to go! 

Final results of Friday's swim: Ellis Aquatics 7th place at 86 points! 

We've come back even stronger for day two. The Peng"win" team hit the water hungry and was out for top 8 finalist spots all day. We had more finalists on the girls side, and way more finalists on the boys side, with Aki Oo (first time 10un JO swimmer), Seth Suzuki, Jesse Russell-Cheung, and Ian Cox making finals (did I forget anyone? it's early). 

We had two major accomplishments at this meet that have to be addressed. 

Ian Cox is now our first men's team sectional qualifier. Ian qualified in the 50m Free in finals with a 25.2, and then repeated the time in his relay. This is a huge step forward for our men's team and is just the first step on a long road for both Ian and the group!

1st, our 10un girls 200m Medley relay finished first. And not just first, but a knockout, hands down, dominated the competition first place at 2:37 with the next girls relay trailing 5 seconds behind at 2:42 and the next 10un boys relay 2 seconds behind at 2:39! Congratulations to Abby Medellin, Lauryn Lucero, Sruthika Prakash, and Liahla Fernandez, we stepped it up for that win girls. You put everything into it and it showed! 16 points in one race!

I should also congratulate our 10un B relay who finished in 6th place, earning our team a significant chunk of points (4). Way to go Marijo, Nika, Kayla and Yaelle! And to our 10un boys relay who finished 4th place with Zack Chau, Aki Oo, Isaac RC, and Jonathan Monis. Jonathan went a best time in the 50m Free, dropping 3 seconds from a 38 to a 35, putting him right at JO qualifying in the event! Boys, we were out there to race and it showed! 

Final results of Saturday's swims: Ellis Aquatics 7th place at 206 points! 

The meet ended on a few fantastic notes. The 10un girls went for the repeat with the 200 Free relay claiming first with a sizable lead. Keiana Fountaine is now our youngest ever Sectional Qualifier, picking up her Q time in the 50m Freestyle with a 28.28 and then a 28.25 in finals. Not satisfied with just doing well in the sprint event Keiana followed that up with a third in the 800m Freestyle with a new personal best of 10:07. 

We saw some incredible splits in the relays too. Ian Cox, had an incredible hammer swim to anchor the 200m Freestyle relay, dropping 1 more full second off his new Sectional time to finish up with a 24.78! Another standout was with 13 year old Luke Martain, who pulled out a 27.65 in the 50m free, a time converted to SCY as 24.1! Way to step it up boys! 

Final results should be up soon. 

Final team placing: Ellis Aquatics - 7th place

This is a great accomplishment for our team! This is our first time breaking top 8 at a Championship meet and it's a strong move up from 16th place at last summers Junior Olympic Championships. We saw more of our 10un Swimmers than ever entered and had finalists all throughout the championship meet. It was an absolutely incredible experience. Way to go Penguins!

Thank you to all the parents, families and athletes that helped make this meet a success. 

And this meet was a success. We now have more 10un Junior Olympic Qualifiers than ever. More significantly, we have more and more qualifying at younger ages with qaulifiers starting at 8 and 9 years old! This meet is setting us up do great things in our zone, our league, in Pacific swimming, and through USA swimming. I know I've said this before, but I can't say it enough, it always amazes me how far we've come in such a short time. We are reaching further, achieving more, and staying hungry. Let's keep it up!

A special congratulations to Nika Bergado, 9 years old and now JO qualified in both the 50m and 100m Fly. Liahla Fernandez, 10 years old and now qualified for JO's and FW in nearly every event, Lauryn Lucero, just turned 9 and adding more events to her JO roster, Abby Medellin, 10 years old and JO's in nearly every event, Zack "Attack" Chau is another new qualifier in the 50 fly and just turned 10, and Isaac Russell-Cheung was our youngest boy to qualify in the 100 breast at 9.0 years old! 

Shambhavi Sisodiya, Kayla Kay Medellin, and "GI" Marijo Pena also deserve special recognition too. All three had incredible standout swims and are just off qualifying for JO's in a few events now! excellent work girls! 

Thank you again to all our parents. You make this program possible!

Summer 2014 Junior Olympic RELAYS!

posted Jun 10, 2014, 6:23 PM by Pat Windschitl   [ updated Jul 14, 2014, 12:19 PM ]


As the Summer Junior Olympics nears I want everyone to start thinking about the importance of relays. Relays make swimming more of a team sport. There’s added excitement, more pressure, and a sense of being part of something much larger than yourself that doesn't always happen in individual sports. Because of this, some athletes surpass their best times only when swimming in relays. 

Ellis Aquatics May 10-11 CBA - Gentoo Rush

posted May 12, 2014, 12:30 PM by Pat Windschitl   [ updated May 13, 2014, 11:39 AM by Ellis Aquatics ]

Thank you to all the families that helped make our age group meet a success! It was a bit windy this weekend but we managed to beat our timelines by over an hour each day! We had no major or even minor delays and the meet ran as smooth as possible. Way to go! 

We also had two new Junior Olympic swimmers qualify at this meet, and our first two ten and under boys of the season. Zachary Chau (10) in the 100m Butterfly event, and Isaac Russell-Cheung (8) in the 50m breaststroke. Isaac is our first 8un boy in the team's history to qualify for the 10un age division at the Junior Olympics! Awesome job boys! 

As a team, our goal was to break over 30 team records at the first Long Course Meter (LCM) meet of the season. We not only met this challenge but shattered it, with 34 records broken and 60 swims making the top 2 rankings in the club's history! 

Some notable record breakers were Lauryn Lucero in the 8un girls group, shattering 6 team records, Lauryn's swims also took new Central Valley USA records in the 50 free, 100 free, 50 back, 50 breast, and 50 fly, Isaac Russell-Cheung swims took 5 team records and central valley records in the 50 back, 50 breast, and 50 fly. Isaac is the first 8un boy from the valley to qualify for the 10un LCM Junior Olympics and Lauryn is the 2nd 8un girl! 

There were also many other record breakers in the 11-12, 13-14, and 17-18 age groups. Be sure to check our complete records page for the updates

A special congratulations must go out to Decland Coombs and Logan Edwards, the first two 8un boys to complete the 400m freestyle in the history of the central valley's USA swims.

April 2014 Far Western Championships

posted Apr 5, 2014, 5:28 AM by Pat Windschitl   [ updated May 6, 2014, 9:08 AM ]

We are two days in to the 2014 SCY Far Western Championships and I'm amazed at how well the team is doing! Over 175 teams have come out from across the US to compete over the 4 day weekend in Morgan Hill, and we are the 16th largest one here!

You can follow the meet here: 

On day one we had two swimmers make it into the top 10 to final. And the most exciting swim of the night for the team was definitely the 11-12 girls 100 fly. Emma Magnussen was seeded 4th in the program with a time of 59 seconds but added one second in prelims, which bumped her to 9th place and put her in the outside lane 1 during finals. Despite the setback, she came back motivated to race. She was out 27.63 at the first 50, 4th in the event and only .2 seconds faster than the next three girls, but on the back 50 Emma did not slow down! She had an excellent turn and a great finish to out touch her heat and finish 2nd overall with a time of 58.59, a new age group team record. 

Caitlin O'Neill was our second swimmer of the night in the 200y Breaststroke and finished 8th overall. O'Neill was out her fastest 100y split yet in the event at 1:11! 

Day 2 we saw Emma return in finals for the 50y Fly for 6th place with a 27.30, just slightly faster than she was out in the 100 fly. The major upsets of the meet were Malia Fernandez and Jenika Tanjuakio, both dropped 2 and half seconds in their events to jump 15+ places and fight for top spots in finals. With Malia it was in the 100y Freestyle where she was out in her best 50y time yet of 25.96 to finish with a 55.10 in the event! She finished 8th overall! 

Jenika swam backstroke as we've been training (which is to swim as little of backstroke as possible) and saw her huge time drops! In finals Jenika was the only girl to streamline to exactly 15m off the start and kept her on pace with the top swimmer in the event, and off her turn she made it about 12m underwater as well! Her final time was 32.05, a new team record, a new central valley record (I think), third place overall, and also, the FINAL MISSING PRT TIME ON THE 9-10 GIRLS RECORDS LISTING! 


March 2014 Junior Olympic Championships

posted Mar 21, 2014, 2:03 PM by Ellis Aquatics   [ updated May 6, 2014, 9:03 AM by Pat Windschitl ]

We were at the larger site this past weekend at the Pacific Swimming Junior Olympics Championships in San Ramon (March 14-16). There were over 80 clubs from an area covering Northern California to Santa Cruz, San Francisco to Reno out to compete over the 3 day weekend, and roughly a third more teams at our site then at the Concord location. 

Our site was a two venue location (one venue boys, one venue girls) while Concord was a one venue location (girls/boys in one course). 

Despite the larger number of competitors fighting for those top 16 spots, we had 30 of our swimmers competed in individual events with 29 qualified to compete in finals! We were the 5th largest team at the meet and had one of the highest percentages of athletes making it into finals (top 16 in an event). Ellis swimmers broke 22 team records and 5 Central Valley records at the meet.

The 5 new Central Valley records were broken this weekend at the meet by two Ellis Aquatics 11-12 year olds. Emma Magnussen (12) won the 50y and 100y Butterfly events this weekend, setting new Central Valley Records in all three butterfly events with a 27.47 in the 50, a 59.39 in the 100, and 2:15.06 in the 200. Magnussen is the first 12 and under girl in the central valley to break the 1:00 mark in the 100 fly. 

The other 2 records were broken by Caitlin O’Neill, who finished 3rd in the 100y and 200y Breaststroke events with a 1:09.91 and 2:27.60. O’Neill is the first 12 and under girl to break the 1:10 mark in the 100 breast from the valley, and the first valley swimmer to break the 2:30 mark in the 200 breaststroke. Both girls are set to be top competitors at the upcoming Far Western International Championships in early April.

It was an incredible experience seeing so many of our local swimmers competing at this level. This was a huge milestone for our club as it was the first time we’ve taken more qualifiers to JO’s then the total number of swimmers we started the club with in late 2010.

In the 9-10 girls division Jenika Tanjuakio (10) was a top five finisher in all seven of her events. She finished third in the 50y butterfly with a 31.43. Tanjuakio and teammate Aislinn Coombs (10) had an incredibly close race in the 100 butterfly with Tanjuakio beating out Coombs for a 2nd place finish in prelims with a 1:09, Coombs third with a 1:10. In finals Coombs out-touched Tanjuakio for 2nd with a 1:09 with Tanjuakio finishing 3rd. Abby Medellin (10) picked up her first Far Westerns International cut in the 100 Backstroke. Liahla Fernandez (9) was one of the youngest swimmers in the meet. Fernandez earned second swims in the 100 IM, 100 Back, and 50 Fly.

I was so proud to see all four of 9-10 girls earn a chance at a second swim. We've been working hard to grow our 9-10 competition group over the past year and their success at the meet really shows how hard they have been working. 

Four 11-12 Ellis girls picked up new qualifying times for the Far Western Championships. Camyle Rosa in the 100 Back (1:06.75), Megan Gee in the 50 Breast (33.51), Abby Figueroa in the 200y Breaststroke (2:42.69), and Malia Fernandez in the 100 IM (1:05.95). These girls, along with Emma Ronquillio, all finished in the top 16 in their events.

Hudson Tsang (12) dropped four seconds in the 50y Breaststroke to finish 2nd overall with a 32.51, beating out many of the expected winners. Tsang times are a new team and Tracy city record. Cristian Munoz earned a chance to make a second swim in his races as well but unfortunately could not stay for finals. 

Hudson was a major upset at the meet by out placing many of the swimmers expected to win in the breaststroke. He dropped a staggering 4 seconds between his entered times, prelim times, and final times during the day! 

All three 13-14 Ellis boys finished top 8 at the meet. Jesse Russell-Cheung (13) finished with a 2:20.49 in the 200y Breaststroke, a new central valley record in the event. Jesse finished 4th in the 200y Breast and 8th in the 100y Breast. Vincent Tejidor (13) finished 8th in the 200y Butterfly with a 2:11.35, a new Far Western time in the event. Tejidor also achieved a new Far Western time in the 100y Breaststroke with a 1:07.49. Caleb Andres (13) finished 8th in the 500y Freestyle with a 5:15.80 in the event. Over the 3 day weekend Andres competed in the 500y, 1000y, and 1650y (mile) freestyle events.

Eighth grader Madesyn Ronquillio finished in the top 16 in all six of her events. Ronquillio was 4th in the 100 Backstroke with a 1:00.40, 5th in the 200y Backstroke with a 2:10, and 5th in the 200 IM with a 2:14.12. Ronquillio will be starting at Tracy High in the fall. Her times in the 100y Back and 200y IM would have been 4th place finishes at last years Sac-Joaquin High School Sections. 

Brianna Carino (13) and Keiana Fountaine (13) both finished in the top 16 in the 200 Butterfly, with Carino finishing at 2:20.86 3rd in consolation finals and Fountaine at 2:21.44 at 4th.

Kamryn Lucero (14) dropped time in the 50y Free with a 25.78 and finished 4th in consols. Hunter Luna was right off of best times in her 100y Butterfly and did fantastic for her first major championship meet.

In the 15-18 division Bridgette Houser (15) finished 2nd in the 100y Breaststroke with a 1:10.70, and 4th in the 200y Breaststroke with a 2:36.53. Nathan Hu (15) finished 2nd in the 500y Free with a 5:02.43 and 2nd in prelims in the 200 free at 1:49.47. Danny Russell-Cheung (18) finished 2nd in the 200y Breast with a 2:22.03. Scarlett Green (15) finished 8th with a 1:13.87 in 100y Breaststroke.

Julia Vares (16), Seth Suzuki (16), Preston Tsang (16), Cassidy Waters (18), and Connor Waters (16) all qualified for second swims in their events with this being the first time for most of them competing in individual events at a Junior Olympic meet (except Seth. Seth's always there).

CBA Tiger Meet 1-11-14

posted Jan 20, 2014, 11:28 AM by Pat Windschitl   [ updated May 6, 2014, 9:02 AM ]

Congratulations to all 50+ swimmers we had compete at the CBA Tiger Aquatics Meet this past weekend. It's incredible to think we had more swimmers showing up to compete at this meet in January then we had on the team our first spring! 

I was waiting to see the total IMX scores from all our new qualifiers from USA swimming, but it's been a week and the meets not showing up in the listings quite yet.

This meet marks a new accomplishment for the club. With Lauryn Lucero's new PRT time (21.15) in the 25y Breaststroke every 8un Girls Record time has now matched Pacific Swimming's PRT time standard. PRT stands for Pacific Reportable Time, which is the highest possible time standard for 8 and unders! Excellent job girls! 

Lauryn Lucero was also our youngest swimmer to compete in the 500 free with a final time of 7:31.42. While I'm still waiting for the official times to post through USA swimming and Pacific, but it looks like Lauryn's time is currently the 3rd fastest 8un 500 Free girls time currently in Pacific Swimming! That would match 8un teammate Logan Edward's 3rd place Pacific ranking in the 500 free he set back in November at the fall distance meet. 

Our next distance meet is in late February at AAA. The events offered are the 500y Free, the 1000y free, and the 1650 (mile) free! I hope to see a big group there! 

Our other 8 and under PRT girl swimmers that helped make this possible include Caitlin O'Neill in 2010, Jenika Tanjuakio in 2012, and Liahla Fernandez and Ryan Cox in 2013. 

The LCM 8un records are also all PRT times and are currently held by Jenika Tanjuakio's swims in 2012. Records are meant to be broken so I'm excited to see what next LCM season will bring. 

The next age group that's close to achieving all PRT times for records is the 9-10 girls, who are just missing PRT's in the 50y Back and 50y Fly SCY, and during the summer LCM season in the 100 Back and 100 Fly.

2013 - Winter Junior Olympic Championships

posted Dec 18, 2013, 1:49 PM by Pat Windschitl   [ updated May 6, 2014, 9:02 AM ]

We sent out Seventeen 14 and under swimmers came out to the Winter Junior Olympic Championships this past weekend in Morgan Hill. It was our largest Winter group yet.  We had 130 swims over the 3 day weekend, and I was ecstatic that we for the first time had four 9-10 girls qualified to compete, allowing for 9-10 girls relays! We also had nine 11-12 girls qualify allowing for A and B relays in every event! 

In the 10 and under age group, first time JO swimmer Aislinn Coombs went personal bests in the 50 free and dropped nearly 4 seconds in the 100 fly to finish with a 1:07! Liahla Fernandez went personal bests in the 50 and 100 free. Jilliyn Lucero and Jenika Tanjuakio both had full meets, with the 9 maximum events. Jenika made second swims in the 50 and 100 fly!

With the 11-12 year olds, Briana Carino finalled in the 50-200 fly, and the 400 IM. Malia Fernandez went a personal best in the 50 back for a new FW. Abby Figuero dropped time in the 50y breaststroke, with Megan Gee dropping time in the 50 free and 200 Breaststroke. Mariah Hu dropped 5 seconds in her 1650. Emma Magnussen finalled in the 500 free, 50 and 100 fly where she set new team records. 

Caitlin O'Neill went a new personal best in the 500 free in finals with a 5:35, and was a top placing finisher in the 50, 100 and 200 breaststroke events.  Vincent Tejidor went personal bests in the 200 Fly, 50 Breast, 1650 Free, and 200 IM. 

This was the first JO meet for Emma Ronquillio, who dropped 2 seconds in her 200 free, and Camyle Rosa, who competed in 7 events over the weekend. 

This was the first Jo meet for all 3 of our swimmers in the 13-14 division for the 13-14 age group. Madesyn Ronquillio dropped time in almost every single event, and picked up a new FARW time in the 100 Breaststroke with a 1:11. She was also a top placing finisher in the 100 Backstroke and 100 Fly. Caleb Andres dropped the most amount of time over the weekend with nearly 40 seconds off in his 1650 freestyle. Jesse Russell-Cheung was right off personal bests in the 100 and 200 Breaststroke.

Over the weekend we had 15 team records broken by 6 different swimmers!
