Halfway Through DSSC's busy month

The Delta Sungod Swim Club is in the middle of four-consecutive busy weekends. First, the club had 21 swimmers participate in the Lower Mainland Region (LMR) level meet hosted by the Gators in SFU. Athletes displayed some great personal performances, with many of the youngest racing officially for the first time and knocking down over 10 seconds off their previous records. There was a lot of top 8 finishers for the whole team. It was also the chance for 2 new swimmers to get their tickets for the Swim BC Tier 1 provincial championships, held in Penticton on March 9th to 11th, 2018.
