12 & Under PNS Winter Champs Recap

 

This past weekend our 10 and unders and 11-12 year olds kicked off the first of 3 weeks of Pacific Northwest Swimming Championship Meets! The swimmers represented UPAC well in and out of the pool, and our fan section was the envy of all teams. It was amazing to be able to be a part of the first PNS Champs meet for 12 and unders in almost 2 years. I couldn’t be more proud of everyone involved. 

 

A huge thank you goes to Lorraine Masse and the Bellevue Club Swim Team for hosting the event and the King County Aquatic Center for providing a space for our athletes to compete!

 

The 11-12 year olds learned some great lessons from their first prelims/finals meet that will serve them greatly in the future. I was beyond impressed with how well they were able to reflect on morning performances and make positive adjustments in the evening!

 

Tessa Hurguy and Sam Neely displayed poise and confidence in their first large-scale championship meet! These 10 and unders will be able to relay their experience to their teammates. I hope their accomplishments will serve as motivation for other young Sharks as they work toward their highest potential!
