Blue/Orange Meet 9/29/13
The Blue team continued its reign of dominance over the Orange team, winning for the third straight year at this year’s Blue/Orange Classic. Both teams performed admirably, but in the end the Blue team’s superior depth proved too much to overcome, as they pulled away for a 4,638-4,493 victory.
So the Blue Staff (Andy Pym, Andrew Nguyen, Dwayne Stewart, Marissa Chang) gets bragging rights for yet another year, while the Orange Staff (Klaas Schenk, Dwight Anderson, Janna Hagensick, Danielle Palumbo) must endure the sting of defeat for at least one more season.
Kids demonstrated all day long how far they have come since the end of last year’s short course season. 38 kids came away with 100% best times, while already swimmers piled up Gold, PNS, and even Regional time standards. Even though several swimmers have only been in the water for a few weeks, BCST showed little signs of rust. Looks like it’s going to be another great year for BCST!!!
Thank you to the BCST booster club, as well as all the parent volunteers for all their hard work in putting on this fun event. Two very special “thank you’s” go out to Laurie Raisys for her work as Meet Director and to Connie Sholdra for shouldering the responsibilities of Meet Referee.
