PNS 14 & Under Champs and many thanks to all.
Just a quick note to congratulate all the 14 & under BCST swimmers and their parents for outstanding performances and contributions throughout the past 3-day weekend!!
While our coaches have not yet had time to complete a statistical evaluation of all the swims, it does not preclude us from shouting out just how pleased we were with the meet this weekend!
The swimmers swam fantastic!The meet ran flawlessly. BCST officials were everywhere. Visiting team officials were everywhere as well! BCST volunteer parents were amazing fulfilling endless roles. Parents from participating teams more than fulfilled their volunteer positions. The visiting team coaches were great! KCAC pool staff was great. Coaches and officials were well fed by the hospitality crew (thank you). It always amazes me just how many hours of volunteer work is completed at these meet. I’m sure it is well over 2,000 ‘work share’ hours.
I want to mention two individuals who deserve extra special recognition for their efforts and the quality of their work for this past weekend: Dave Conger as Meet Director and Connie Sholdra as the Meet Referee were both outstanding (thanks so much to you both).
I also want to applaud our BCST coaching staff who helped guide our swimmers to their fine performances over the weekend, I think you know who they are! I'm very proud of our staff.
One other individual who certainly deserves special mention is Nathan Adrian. Nathan, a 2008 Olympic gold medal winner, was a real treat for all of our swimmers and families this past weekend. I hope you were able to see and hear Nathan speak!.
As for the meet results, well.........KING is still KING, but no doubt we put them on alert! I’m sure they’ll make extra efforts to prepare for our next encounter. Let’s not disappoint them, or any other team for that matter, it's good for PNS. Let’s continue to give our best and go for the number one spot. I’m certain all other teams will be trying to move up as well. I HOPE SO! To see the unofficial scores please check below. Coach Dwight will give all of us his 'in-depth report when all the info becomes available.
