With many qualifying for the Regional Championship Meet this year, PVA sent 12 amazing athletes to compete at the Upper Valley Aquatics Center in White River Junction last weekend. Sunny Cart, Julia Goh, Julia Holmgren, Mia Holmgren, Sophia Holmgren, Tyler Hynes-Drumm, Caleb Low, Graham Maramag, Lydia Shustack, Savannah Shustack, Samantha Stevenson, and Gabriela Zasada all crushed old best times and represented PVA in style!
Sunny and Mia competed in the 8 & Under session that was a time of great swims with very little rest! After competing in one event they would circle around and line back up to swim in their next event. A standout race for Sunny was her 50 yard backstroke where she raced to a time of 48.17 besting her old time by over a second and finishing in 3rd place. In her 100IM she also crushed a previous time by just over 9 seconds!! Mia Holmgren started off the meet with a bang as she cruised past an old 50 yard freestyle time by 4.08 seconds and took 2nd place in the event overall. Mia also showed how her hard work has paid off by smashing her old 100 yard backstroke time by over 15 seconds and taking 1st place in the event! Both girls had many other amazing swims which can be found on Meet Mobile along with all of our other amazing PVA athletes as well!
