Our top male and female swimmers competed last weekend at the inaugural Swim BC Tier II Championships in Kamloops. We came away with 3 new club records, 6 individual medals, and 1 relay medal.
Samantha Zastre broke the club record in the 1500 Freestyle going 17:18.62S. Sophia Hartvikson swam a blistering 29.18S and 1:03.96S in the 50 and 100 Back respectively to break the previous club records. Congratulations girls!
The 6 medals belonged to 3 swimmers: Jimmy Zhang won Gold in the 100 Back and Silver in the 200 Back, Samantha Zastre won Gold in the 1500 Free and Bronze in both the 400 and 800 Free, and Sophia Hartvikson earned a Silver in the 100 Back. Great job everyone!
The relay medal belongs to the Girls 14 & under 200 Medley Relay. Sophia Hartvikson, Jessica Zhang, Olivia Jakeman, and Eva Wen swam themselves to a Silver medal. Awesome job!
All in all, a very successful meet. A total of 19 swimmers out of the 22 that went qualified for second swims and earned points for the team. Looking forward to even greater results!
