I want to start by congratulating all of you for your hard work hosting the JP Fiset Meet that took place from December 14-17th last month. It takes a tremendous amount of effort to host a large competition, so I would like to acknowledge the hard work of all of the officials and volunteers from the meet. We couldn’t do it without you!
In the pool we had a great meet. Most of our swimmers approached the meet after competing in Victoria at the PCS Xmas Cracker or in the local Candy Cane Classic Meet. Our swimmers brought the positive momentum from each previous competition and finished the Short Course season with a bang. As a team, for the first time in 6 years OSC placed first at the JP Fiset Invitational!!!
Because OSC had 106 swimmers entered in the meet, I have selected specific accomplishments to highlight our individual swimmer’s performances.
- Sophie Binch made finals in the women’s 12 and Under 50m and 100m Butterfly events. She also got the 100m Butterfly Champs time and got 100% best times.
- Nikola Glamuzina achieved his firstProvincials North time in the 100m Butterfly.
- Elin Jordan also achieved a 200m Breast Provincials North time.
- Additionally, many other swimmers achieved 100% personal bests times.
From AGP White
- Kevin Chen qualified for Provincials North in the 100m and 200m Breaststroke events!
- Each swimmer achieved a minimum of 50% personal best times.
From AGP Blue
- Eric Mrugala setting a new club record for the 10&Under Boys in the 50 Fly in 33.95. The old record time was 34.21 by Jordan Aseron.
- Swimmers had huge progress in distance events (at both JP and PCS) and had tons of personal best times.
From P Blue
- Monyo Maina went ALMOST 100% personal best times two weeks in a row after swimming 7 events at each competition. He made 7 finals in 7 events at both meets!
- Swimmers carried a strong momentum forward after a huge performance in Victoria.
From P White
- Kevin Theriault qualified for AB Champs in the 400m Freestyle and closed the gap to make more cut times in multiple events!
- PWhite swimmers achieved huge best times and continued progressing from PCS the week prior.
- Grace Polkosnik achieved her first USport time, which is an important performance that qualifies her for the Canadian University Championships, and can help her secure a spot on a Canadian Varsity swim team.
- Many of the HP swimmers progressed from their previous personal best times, and in many cases got faster than the week prior – which was very exciting!
Way to Go O!
I look forward to watch OSC progress in the upcoming meets in February and beyond!
