The October Challenge Yields Big Results!
2010 October Challenge 10 / 16-17 
 
405 athletes.  Over 2,400 total races.  Two teams.  One bitter rivalry.  
Once again, Bellevue Club and Issaquah swim team met in this years October Challenge, renewing a rivalry that has resulted in several recent close races and close meets.  The two teams lived up to the pre meet hype, with fast swims and great times all weekend long.  In the end, however, it was Bellevue Club getting the best of Issaquah by a score of 8,300-7,068, setting up what is sure to be a great contest at PNS champs.
Bellevue Club swimmers picked up right where they left off from the long course season.  The dramatic improvement from last springs short course times demonstrated just how far our swimmers have come in just the past several months.  Congratulations to BCST swimmers for such a successful first Challenge meet of the year!
