Divisional Champs Swimmers Finish the Season in Style!!

Fall Divisional Champs (Division-1)    12 / 1-2 / 2012


Bellevue Club swimmers finished off the fall season in style at this year’s Fall Divisional Champs, held at Marysville-Pilchuck High School.  The meet tested Bellevue Club’s swimmers stamina given the fact that the meet was in prelims/finals format for the eleven and older swimmers, meaning some swimmers arrived as early as 7:00am and stayed until as late as nine.  Meanwhile for the ten and under pentathlon competitors, both boys and girls had to compete in all five of their races within a matter of hours. 


Bellevue club swimmers were undaunted, however, as the weekend was full of fantastic swims.  There were many standout efforts throughout the weekend (as you will see listed below), but particularly impressive was the meet had by young Courtney Cross.  Courtney not only won the 8 and under girls pentathlon, but took first place in every event along the way.  Way to go Courtney!


All swimmers should be very proud of their efforts, not only in the weekend’s races, but in the hard work during the months that led up to them.  The coaching staff is very proud of your efforts.  Now, let’s get back to work and move forward towards the next championship meet
