Seward Tsunami Swimmer Brings Home Gold

Lydia Jacoby traveled to Fairbanks representing the Seward Tsunami Swim Club at the 2018 Alaska Senior Championship meet January 26-28. This is a gathering of  top competitive swimmers from around the state, and athletes must meet challenging time standards to attend.

Temperatures in Fairbanks dipped below -25 over the weekend; Alaska Swimming slogan “TOO FAST TO FREEZE!” held true, and there were some great races. Many long standing state records fell during this event.


Lydia took first place in the 200 meter breaststroke on Saturday, setting a new state record for that event. On Sunday afternoon she continued with another win in the 100 meter breaststroke, cutting over 2 seconds from the previous record. Congratulations Lydia!

The Tsunamis will be fielding a larger team for the Soldotna Invitational meet February 2-3. This will be a fun meet for all ages. We are looking forward to some great swimming from these talented young athletes. Go Tsunamis: Swim fast and have fun!
