January Challenge Results!!

  January Challenge 1/14-15

The great swims continued for BCST swimmers at the January Challenge!  Held at the beautifully renovated Curtis High School Pool, Bellevue Club swimmers dominated all weekend long.  In the end, BCST easily outdistanced the competition, scoring 2,727 points.  Finishing a distant second was Valley Aquatics with 692 points, followed by Rainier Foothills Swim Team with 455 points.  University Place Aquatics and South Sound Titans rounded out the top five, finishing fourth and fifth, respectively.


Among the highlights included Nathan Lee’s 50 backstroke, finishing with a 38.66 and tying the club record, now held with AJ Rossman.  Nice Job, Nathan!  Also deserving of special mention are Rachel Nguyen and Carly Tudor, who both took first in every race over the weekend.  Nice work, ladies!


Nice work to all the parents who braved the snow and hazardous travel conditions to get their kids to the meet.  Congrats to great start to the new year BCST swimmers!  Keep up the great work!
