Section 1A swim meet is underway

The New Prague Trojan swim team spent the past two weeks in its taper as it prepared for the Section 1A tournament.

Coach Josh Franz explains that a taper is a gradual reduction in the volume of work the swimmers do and an increase in focus on the specific event each swimmer will compete in. The volume decrease and specific focused workouts are done in order to peak for the championship meets and achieve a maximum performance.

The Section 1A meet began Wednesday, and concludes Friday, Nov. 10. The state meet is November 20-22 at the University of Minnesota Aquatics Center.
