AGP1 – Coach Glen Steacy

The AGP 1 group did a great job representing MAC on the weekend at Central Region C Championships, once again held at the Markham Pan Am pool.  The meet schedule is different than standard meets, giving this group the chance to swim in the afternoons only and not in the morning.  This, combined with being at our home pool, made for generally well rested swims and was helpful in many achieving best times on the weekend.  I saw good attitudes on display throughout the weekend, while many had their best swims on the final day of competition.

Medal winners as follows: Ethan Abbatangelo (Silver 200m Fly, Bronze 200m Br), Edward Cheung (Silver 200m Bk, 400m IM, Bronze 100m Bk, 200m Fly), Sydney Dosen (Bronze 200m IM), Perry Li (Silver 100m Fly), Jacob Loong (Gold 100m Fr, Silver 200m Fly, Bronze 200m Fr), Ivy Lu (Silver 100m Fly, 200m Fly, 400m IM), Matthew Offenbacher (Bronze 100m Br, 200m Br), Jacob Racic (Bronze 100m Fly), Andrea Ramirez (Bronze 200m Bk), Chiok Yan Yeo (Gold 100m Fly, 200m IM, Bronze 100m Fr, 200m Fr).

As we enter our final week of training for the season for most of the group, we all still have roles to play in getting the best performances of the season during these last championship meets: Festivals, Ontario Age Group Championships, and Canadian Junior Championships.  I know we will have fun as well with Family Fun Day and our final Blue, White and Gold meet of the year which will help cap off an excellent season for the AGP1 group! 

Good luck to all those going on in competition and have a great summer to all those finishing up this week!
