OSI Tech Suit Policy
Beginning April 1, 2019 Oregon Swimming will not permit the use of tech suits for swimmers 12 years and younger. You can see the full policy and a list of the banned suits here.
Age Group Zones
Thank you to everyone who submitted a vote in the recent survey. The result is that as an LSC we will continue to only bring 11-14 age groups to compete at the Western Age Group Zone Meet. The Oregon Swimming Board of Directors voted to support a new camp that will be an invite only camp consisting of athletes aged 10-14 yrs. Information about this camp will be made available soon.
B/C Swim Clinic
OSI is hosting a free B/C clinic Saturday, March 23, 2019. It will be at Lacamas Athletic Club, 2950 NW 38th Ave, Camas, WA. You can sign up here.
At the Arena OSI/Region XII Championship meet hosted by THSC three OSI relay records were taken down.
The 15-16 girls from THSC bettered the time of 7:26.38 in the 800 free relay. The previous record was set by Lisa Kaunitz, Sara Metzsch, Emily Cook, and Keaton Blovad in 2014 by THSC. The combination of Lily Gardner, Fay Lustria, Elizabeth Cook, and Hannahy Trainer went 7:26.20. The 17-18 boys from HEAT bettered their own mark set at Junior nationals a few months earlier in the 200 medley relay. Max Woodbury, Brett Champlin, Ethan Heasley, and Luke Thronbrue went 1:31.15 which just sneaks under their previous time of 1:31.79.
