Bill, I think the first girl you are referring to is on my team as well 🙂
You can definitely throw out her results. My general rule of thumb is unless a swimmer has at least
75-80% minimum attendance, then there is no way for me to really evaluate weather or not out training plan was effective.
Your second girl will be a good case study on her own. I think you might find that she does pretty well because even though she may have missed more practices than you like, she took full advantage of what you offered which was a lot of very “relevant” practice.
Good luck! Let us know how they did.
