Dear VJO Swimmers and Parents,

 

VJO MEET RECAP –
Thank you parent volunteers!Thank you parents and swimmers for all your help in putting on our Nov 2-4 VJO Meet. We ended up getting lots of volunteer assistance to help make the meet run smooth. We had a total of 920 swimmers in our meet, which is the largest meet VJO has held in years. It was incredible that we were able to get the meet done so quickly with so many swimmers in attendance. We could not have done it without all of your help. Thank you!
 
Great Job Swimmers!As for our swimmers, they swam incredible! We had over 100 VJO swimmers in our meet this weekend and they all did a fantastic job. We had 37 new “B” time standards achieved, 28 new “A” time standards achieved, 9 new Junior Olympic time standards achieved, and 2 new FarWestern time standards achieved.
 
Some of our biggest achievements this weekend - Bobby Hilton(12) achieved a first ever Junior Olympic time in his 50 breast with a 38.16 and Alexander Viray (13) achieved a first ever Junior Olympic time in his 1,000 free with a 11:39.18. Both Bobby and Alexander will now be joining our group of 8 VJO qualifiers to swim at the Junior Olympic Championships later this month in Morgan Hill, CA. Sam Man (11) achieved a JO in the 50 free (28.39), a JO in the 100 IM (1:10.27), and a first ever FarWestern qualifying time in the 50 back with a 30.96. Sam Man will now be able to join us this April at the Spring FarWestern Championships. We also had Marshall Zia (17) achieve a new FW in his 200 breast (2:26.33), Elina Rosario (13) achieve a new JO in her 200 breast (2:42.07), Alyssa Powell (13) achieve a new JO in her 200 back (2:22.69),Mary Welton (16) achieve a new JO in her 100 free (57.90), and Evan Augst (18) achieve a new JO in his 100 fly (59.52).
 
Great job VJO swimmers, keep up the hard work!
