May 14, 2013
2013 offered another successful May Flowers, hosted by the BCST Boosters. This annual 2 day meet is held at KCAC and attracts some of the top senior swimmers in the Northwest. This meets traditionally is the first long course meet for the BCST seniors, and this year 85 of them got to shake off the rust and relearn how to swim in a 50 meter pool.
The rust was evident, but as the meet progressed the swimmers got more and more comfortable and their performances improved. There were no trophies or ribbons awarded, but we did have some event winners. Congratulations to Alec Barnard (200 Fly), Morgan Ciliv (100 Brest), Anna Keane (50 Free), Ed Kim (200 Back), Kalena Laurent (400 Free & 200 Fly), Andrew McCarthy (800 Free), Liam Sosinsky (200 Breast), Zach Wagner (50 Free & 100 Free), Kim Williams (800 free), and Grace Wold (100 Fly).
The BCST Boosters once again put on a great show. A special thanks to Joanne Wrightson, Marianne Kersten and Deb Keane for helping to lead the charge.
