UPAC 2014

UPAC Spring Special—Saturday 5/03

Again we found ourselves in the friendly confines of Curtis High School for another UPAC Spring Special. A couple regional swimmers and the color groups from BCST swam well, raced hard, and put up a good showing as a number of swimmers qualified for upcoming long course meets this summer by achieving new standards, while spending their day with their friends on the bleachers away from their parents.

There were a large number of great swims across the board but standing out above the rest, Alvin Zhang dominated the 8 & U events, finishing in first place for all five of his races and achieving a best time in all but one race, and Stella Oh swam out of her mind dropping a combined 22 seconds between the five best times that she posted.

Nice work BCST!
