Otters, Markham Long Course Invitational 2018
This past weekend we had over 178 swimmers attend the first edition of Orangeville Otter’s Invite held at the Markham Pan-Am pool. With the worst “winter” storm looming swimmers competed for the first time since early March with some competing at their first long course meet ever!
The first day saw Trojan’s swim a mix of distance and sprint with a ton of seasonal best and first time swims in the 800 and 1500 distance freestyle. Saturday brought more improvement with multiple swimmers making the finals cut. Saturday evening had some exciting races with Oakville and Cobra providing stiff competition with many Trojans landing in the medals. Sunday’s schedule had to be altered with weather conditions deteriorating, but those who braved the weather made the most of it swimming seasonal and life time best in 200’s and 400’s.
