Another Tremendous Championship Meet

Spring Divisional Championships

BCST swimmers capped off a great season of swimming with another strong performance at this year’s Spring Divisional Championships.   BCST finished 7th overall, as high point awards and top eight finalists were littered with BCST swimmers.  36 BCST swimmers also finished the meet achieving best times in 100% of their races. 

Deserving of special mention are Kaitlyn Girotto, Alvin Zhang, and Sophia Coco, all of whom won high point honors for their respective age groups.  Alvin Zhang was especially dominant, taking first place in all 4 of his races.  Alvin also set the Bellevue Club 8 & Under 25 Back record with a time of 17.57.  Kaitlyn too broke a Bellvue Club record in the 8 & under 50 Free with a a time of 32.01, surpassing BCST Coach Brett Bogachus's old time.

Also worthy of note were two swims by Nathan Lee and Ellie Bailey.  Nathan broke the 10 and Under 50 backstroke record with a time of 31.31, while Ellie Bailey, after just turning 12, joined the ranks of the Sub Club by breaking the minute in the 100 free with a time of 59.78.  Congratulations everybody!!!

And Congratulations to all BCST swimmers, not only for a great meet, but a fantastic season.  The coaches at BCST are all proud of the work you have put in this year.  Now, time to focus on the long course season and gear up for PNS champs.   Keep up the great work everyone!!!

GO BCST!!!!!
