Great piece on reducing drag via The Race Club is here. Thanks for the heads up, DJA!
Frontal drag is the number one enemy of the swimmer.
Swimming is arguably the most technique sensitive sport on the planet.
With water being some 800 times denser than air, the frontal drag forces
that slow swimmers down come into play at much slower speeds than all
other sports on land. For that reason, in order to become fast, we must
learn how to reduce frontal drag as much as possible.

2)Coaches & Sponsors - When choosing your Region COTY, please avoid the "voting block" mentality some multi-school districts push. It's your vote, not your school district's.
Also, maybe you should cast your ballot for the coach who did the most with his/her program. Sometimes that's the guy/gal whose team destroyed the competition. Other times, it's a coach whose squad overachieved, but still ended up back in the pack.
Don't tell me I'm "throwing away my vote" when I select someone who's done the best coaching job and not the sponsor who filled out the bus request and ordered the Whataburgers...
