November Age Group Invite
The final tune up before PNS champs proved to be a promising one. If this meet is indicative of how BCST swimmers will perform in the Championship meets that lie ahead, BCST swimmers can expect some big things.
Bellevue Club easily distanced itself from the competition, outscoring WAVE, Chinook, Excel, and Central Area Aquatics to take first place in team honors. But our individual swims were outstanding all weekend long. With this being the last chance for swimmers to achieve their PNS champ times, BCST swimmers stepped up big time. Several new qualifiers emerged from the weekend, with several others adding even more events to their repertoire.
While collectively BCST was outstanding, a few individual performances deserve special note:
- Christina Domanowski, Nick Elizarov, and Nathan Lee went 6 for 6 in taking first place in every individual event they entered, with some impressive time drops along the way.
- We can add three more names to the sub club list: Mari Nielsen, Katie Cross, and Brian Kim all broke 1:00 in their 100 freestyles, adding their names to the ever increasing list this season. Congrats to you all!!!
- Not since 1998 had the girls 8 and under 50 yard butterfly record been broken. But on this day, TWO BCST girls decided that it was time for the record to be broken. Both Megan Lei and Emma Conger beat the previous record of 38.17, with Emma Conger getting the slightly faster overall time of 36.55, for the new record. Congratulations to you both!
Great job BCST swimmers!!! Now, onto PNS champs!!!
