The Fluvanna Aquatics Sports Team (FAST) wrapped up the regular season last week with a close meet against the Fairview Seahorses in Charlottesville. The night was full of exciting finishes and big time drops. Throughout the evening, there were many lead changes and ties between the teams, and every swim mattered. In the end, Fairview pulled away during the final races to win 472–467. FAST finishes the season 3-2 and will share the Division I regular season Runner-Up title with the Boar’s Head Swim Club. This is the third consecutive Division I Runner-Up title for the FAST Makos.

In spite of a few showers, it was a beautiful day at Lake Monticello Golf Course, scene of the 18th Annual Fluvanna Habitat for Humanity benefit golf tournament held on Saturday (July 14). Tournament Co-Chairman Kit Walz said over 100 golfers competed for the prizes in a competitive field. The event was made even more exciting with the posting of a hole-in-one on hole #8 by Jeff Haislip.

When FAST swimmers travel to compete against the Farmington Frogs, thoughts of touch pads, ice cream sandwiches, and good sportsmanship come to mind.

The Frogs know how to get in the spirit by turning the pool green before each meet as a longtime Farmington tradition. They make every swimmer feel welcome with a handshake after a close race and a treat on your way out. With spirits high, the Makos saw many large time drops throughout the night and improved to 3 – 1 on the season with a 589 – 500 win over Farmington.

FAST’s own Ben Nalle even opened with the “Star-Spangled Banner.” At the end of the night, Fluvanna improved to 2-1 in Division I with a score of 569 to best Forest Lake’s 525.
