Great LASC Team Effort in Medicine Hat

We had 20 LASC swimmers on the road to the AMAC Invitational in Medicine Hat, November 24/25 and we swam great. 

Our 13-14 boys were the class of the field winning the 200 Free and 200 Medley relays en route to setting new LASC team records in each.  The 200 Free relay was a new record by 5 seconds!  Our boys won every event in the 13-14 age group except one!  Kaelan Freund went 6/6 winning the 200 Free, 50/100 back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly (New LASC Record) and 200 IM.  Seth Harasem-Mitchell won 4 events - 100/400/800 Free and 100 Breast, with 3rd in the 50 Breast.  Vince Sljuka won the 100 Fly and 100 IM, placed 2nd in the 100 Back, 100 Breast and 200 IM and 3rd in 50 Fly.  David Zhang finished 2nd in the 50/100 Free and 3rd in the 100 IM

Joshua Freund almost matched his older brother with five wins in six events in the 11-12 age group!  Josh won the 400 Free, 100 Back, 50/100 Breast and 200 IM.  He just missed out on the 6th win with a 2nd in the 100 Fly.  Also, winning individual events were Matthew Boutilier-McFarlane taking top spot in the 10 & under boys 50 Back and 50 Breast and Jordan Calladine in the 13-14 Girls 50 Back.

Our team combined for 84 lifetime bests with all of our swimmers achieving at least 3 best times.  Matthew Boutilier-McFarlane, Mackenzie Lachman, Taryn Lachman and David Zhang all posted 100% bests! 

Other Super Improvers were; Taylor Lachman - over 30 seconds improvement in just 3 events!  Chrstopher Okken - improvement of 73 seconds in 200 Free!  Raine Arden - over 30 seconds improvement in 6 events!  Natalie Arnold - over 20 seconds improvement!  Renee Boutilier-McFarlane - over 30 seconds improvement!  Emily Coolen - over 30 seconds improvement!
