Atlanta Swim Academy: Looking Back and Moving Forward

23

 

As Atlanta Swim Academy celebrates its 30th anniversary, Vice President Brad Grzelka takes stock of the many changes that have happened over the years, especially in the past year at the facility. ASA made a decision in 2014 to launch its highly successful SwimFit Club, an aquatic program that teaches swimming techniques but is not as competitive in terms of meets and practices as the regular swim team.

“Our research proved beneficial,” says Grzelka. “Out of our 250-plus swim team members, about 50 percent of them joined the SwimFit program that bridges the gap between lessons and a competitive team.”

As a result, the ASA Swim Team has had one of its most successful years ever. Jenny Kordon, head team coach, attributes this milestone to a more focused team effort as the competitive swimmers worked together toward a winning season. Swimmers in the SwimFit program receive the same athletic training as team members, but do so in an environment that emphasizes fun and exercise rather than  competition.

As ASA moves forward, the facility’s goal is to provide a place for all levels of swimmers to improve and excel. The facility has just started a Baby Splash class for 3-6 month old babies to be accompanied by a parent. This class is FREE. The current class is full, but there is a waiting list for future classes.

More than 1800 participants are enrolled in swim lessons at ASA. Those enrolled in lessons can easily transition to the SwimFit program.

“Because the same individuals who teach swimming lessons are also SwimFit coaches moving up into the SwimFit program is an easy transition for our swimmers,” says Kordon.

New this year, ASA plans to offer SwimFit and Swim Team programs year-round for its swimmers.

“A year-round program allows swimmers to better maintain their fitness levels,” explains Grzelka.

“Rather than the typical slow start at the beginning of each season, swimmers who are in the pool year-round continue to improve their strokes and times with no seasonal lapses.”

For more information about classes or schedules, contact ASA at 770-973-3120 or Info@atlantaswimacademy.com. You can also go to the newly designed website, www.atlantaswimacademy.com, for photos of ASA swimmers in action.

Pope and Walton in State Baseball Playoffs

 

This article originally appeared on AJC.com. For the original article by Todd Holcomb, click HERE.

 

The Class AAAAAA baseball semifinals have two East Cobb teams (Walton, Pope), the No. 1-ranked team (Parkview) and another Cobb County team looking for its first state title (Kennesaw Mountain).

Here’s a quick look at how each got through its quarterfinal series this week.

I’ll take a look a different classification each day through Monday, when the semifinal series begin.

Parkview
Parkview catcher Austin Biggar came up big in the quarterfinal sweep of Etowah. Biggar, who bats cleanup, hit a three-run home run in Game 1, a 4-2 victory. Parkview trailed 2-1 at the time. In Game 2, Biggar hit a solo shot in the seventh inning for a 3-1 lead. Parkview won 3-2. Parkview has allowed only five runs in six playoff games, all victories. Ryne Inman, the Game 2 winner, has allowed two earned runs in 18 innings. Parkview (30-2) is in the semifinals for the fifth straight season and won titles in 2011 and 2012. Whitewater (AAAA) is the only other school with a streak of five semis.

Pope
Braden Zarbinsky is playing like a tournament MVP for Pope (24-7). He’s been the winning pitcher in three games and has 28 strikeouts in 19 innings. At the plate, he was 5-for-7 with two RBI and two stolen bases in the 6-1, 5-4 sweep this week of Collins Hill. Zarbinsky has signed with West Virginia. Cameron Allison, who is committed to Auburn, has allowed only three hits and struck out 14 in 11.2 innings in the playoffs. Pope, which plays Parkview next, lost in the first round last season but was the Class AAAAA champion in 2013.

Kennesaw Mountain
Kennesaw Mountain is averaging 9.0 runs per game in the playoffs (63 in nine) and showed its offense again this week with a 10-1 victory over North Gwinnett in Game 3 of their quarterfinal series. Third baseman Zach Teem was 5-for-10 with two doubles in the series. Right fielder and cleanup hitter Terence Norman was 6-for-11. First baseman Patrick Martin was 4-for-10 with a double. In the finale, Matt Cole pitched a complete game and struck out seven. In the Game 1 victory, Ryley Gilliam pitched a complete game, allowing one earned run and striking out nine. Kennesaw Mountain is the only school remaining in the AAAAAA semifinals that has never won a state title in baseball. The Mustangs were runners-up to Walton in 2007.

Walton
The Walton-Mountain View series, won by Walton in an 8-7 Game 3 victory on Wednesday, had its special moments. In Game 2, Mountain View’s Robert Kwiatkowski hit a two-run, two-out double for a walk-off 4-3 victory. Kwiatkowski also was the winning pitcher. In Game 3, Kwiatkowski hit a 3-run home run to bring Kennesaw Mountain within 8-7 with no outs in the seventh, but Walton’s Jason Rooks got the final three in order to close it. Rooks also was 3-for-3 at the plate with two doubles. Rooks, one of the top class-of-2017 prospects in the country, was 2-for-3 with a double and a homer in the Game 1 victory.

National Kids to Parks Day is May 16

Georgia’s State Parks and Historic Sites have planned dozens of family-friendly activities in celebration of “National Kids to Parks Day” on May 16. Sponsored by the National Park Trust, the celebration encourages children to explore public lands. The trust estimates more than 500,000 people will attend events across the country in what is called America’s national “day of play.”

In Georgia, the parks are offering fishing rodeos, guided hikes, nature crafts, scavenger hunts, archery, geocaching and numerous other programs for three Saturdays: May 16, 23 and 30. Many events are free and parking is $5. Families can stay overnight in the parks’ campgrounds, cabins, lodge rooms and yurts — turning their outing into a mini eco-vacation.

A map of all 64 state parks and historic sites can be found at www.GaStateParks.org, and the list of events is onwww.GaStateParks.org/kidstoparks. Participants are encouraged to share their photos on Instagram with hashtags #gastateparks and #kidstoparks, and to post their favorite moments to the Georgia State Parks Facebook page (www.facebook.com/georgiastateparks).

High school lacrosse semifinals looming

 

All season, the Class AAAAAA boys rankings have been dominated by Area 3, as Johns Creek, Lambert and Centennial occupied the top three spots for the majority of the spring. The trio earned their status with repeated big victories against respected opponents both within Georgia and beyond.

But when the semifinals are played this week, no Area 3 schools will be taking part. As part of a flurry of tightly contested upsets, Johns Creek and Lambert, who both spent time as the top-ranked team in the state, were knocked out in the first round Wednesday. Centennial was then eliminated in an 18-17 overtime loss to Harrison in the second round Saturday.

Harrison, the Area 1 champ, will take on Pope in one semifinal matchup Wednesday, while Area 2 champ Roswell will face Etowah, the No. 4 seed from Area 2. Of the survivors, only fourth-ranked Roswell, the defending state champ, finished the regular season ranked in the top six.

Elsewhere, upsets have been rare.

AAAAAA girls: Milton’s march toward a sixth consecutive state championship continues after the Lady Eagles breezed through the first two rounds by a combined score of 39-9. In a rematch of the 2009 state title game, they’ll face Chattahoochee in Tuesday’s semifinals. Milton hasn’t lost a game to a Georgia team since the Lady Cougars claimed the 2009 title with a 9-7 victory. That season remains the only one since GHSA began sanctioning lacrosse in 2005 that Milton has not won a state title.

The opposite semifinal matchup features Lassiter and Walton, who finished as the No. 2 and 3 seeds, respectively, behind Milton in Area 2.

A-AAAAA boys: Lovett and Westminster remain on track for a state title showdown that has been widely expected. But while Westminster breezed through the first two rounds allowing only one goal, Lovett was pushed to the brink in the first round before escaping with a 9-7 win over Marist.

The Lions will take on Allatoona on Tuesday, while Westminster faces Area 3 champ Cambridge.
A-AAAAA girls: Areas 2 and 3 are responsible for all four teams in this semifinal, with champions Kell and Cambridge meeting on one side, and second-place finishers Westminster and Blessed Trinity on the other.

None of the four have been challenged to this point in the playoffs, Westminster’s 15-9 victory against Wesleyan in the first round the closest game among them.

Kell, the defending state champ, defeated Westminster in last season’s state championship game, snapping a string of four consecutive titles for the Lady Wildcats.
All state championship games will be played Saturday.

State tennis: Walton boys, girls sweep

 

(Excerpted from the AJC) 

Walton became the first school to win the boys and girls championships in the largest division since they last did it in 2002. For the girls it was easy. For the boys it was much more difficult.

In the Class AAAAAA finals, the Walton girls powered through Kennesaw Mountain 3-0, while the Walton boys were pressed to the limit before taking a 3-2 victory over Northview.

The Walton girls have won three consecutive state championship and have won 13 of the last 15.

“Being seniors, they knew the drill,” Walton coach Christy Lewis said. “”They played with strength and confidence and it showed.”

Walton got wins from Bella Kuse and Johanna Keeline in singles and from the No. 2 doubles team of Jessica Cramer and Sophia Guildberry. The other matches were not completed, including No.1 singles player Suzanne Zenoni.

“It means a lot to our seniors to have won three straight,” Zenoni said. “It’s great to leave with a win.”

The Walton boys won their first title since 2002. The winning points came from No. 3 singles player Francis Yang, who clinched the victory with a second-set tiebreaker win over Northview’s Joseph Zhang.

Walton won the doubles matches behind the No. 1 team of Crews Enochsand Trevor Croyder and the No. 2 team of Jonathan He and Raymond Zhang.

But Northview battled back to get a win at No. 1 singles from Jeremy Yuan and at No. 2 singles from Matt Terry. Northview won the Class AAAAA championship last year.
