2016 Speedo Sectionals Champs Meet Recap
Congratulations to our three VJO swimmers for qualifying and swimming in the 2016 Winter Speedo Sectional Championships on December 18-21 in East Los Angeles.  This was one of the fastest Sectional Championships we have seen in a long while. We witnessed numerous Olympic Trial cuts achieved and meet records taken down.  This however, did not intimidate our VJO swimmers. All three of our VJO swimmers, Alyssa Powell, Dylan Powell, and Elina Rosario set new team records (4 team records set in all). Alyssa set a new 17-18 girls 100 fly team record with a 58.45. Dylan swam a new best time in his 100 fly, with a time of 50.84… very impressive!  Elina qualified for finals in her 100 breast, placing 10th overall and achieved a new Winter Junior National time. Elina will now be qualified to attend the 2016 Winter Junior Nationals in Texas later this year.  Congratulations to our Sectional swimmers!  We are very proud to have you represent us here at Vallejo Aquatic Club. Keep up the hard work.
