Meet Summary :  

4/28-29 - AAA C/B/BB+ meet.

By Coach Zoe:

We had a fantastic meet for the Green and Bronze swimmers at Albany Aquatics Center this weekend! Most of our swimmers achieved personal best times in several of their events. Congratulations to Saahil, Chloe, Tristen, Jasmyn, Scarlett, Rachel M, and Allie for an excellent first meet! Also congratulations to Connor Caranozza, who completed his events without a single DQ! Thank you to everyone who helped out our new swimmers and for making it a fun and exciting experience for the coaches, swimmers, and parents.

Remember our rules of swimming:

  1. Have fun!

  2. If not having fun, refer to rule 1

We look forward to seeing you at the PST hosted meet on May 19-20.


4/28-29 - SRVA C/B/BB+ LCM meet.

By Coach Stefan:

Our older swimmers had a fantastic first long course meters (LCM) meet at San Ramon. The three goals we had were:

  1. Have a can do attitude

  2. Go out strong and build tempo at the end

  3. Leg driven strokes

All swimmers tried their best to achieve this and I must say looked good in doing so. Almost everyone swam massive personal best times and it was fun coaching this group of young athletes.

Special congratulations to Emily and Holden for racing their first meet with PST.

Many thanks to our officials, Rachel and Conan, and all volunteers for their effort, hard work and support.
