DSSC Swimmers Attain Finals In A Shining New Aquatic Center.

This past weekend, April 21-22, 2018, Team Sungod participated in the annual Jessica Deglau Invitational at the University of British Columbia. It was a beautiful weekend marked with some good preliminary swims, a wonderful weather, and some fast final swims. The team also had the chance to experience the brand new swimming pool UBC recently opened.

All the competitive groups were invited to take part in this event. In the early morning, the “AA” format required some qualifying time to participate, and the top 10 of each age category (Girls 11& under, 12-13 and 14 & over – Boys 12 & under, 13-14, 15 & over) in each event had the chance the display their racing skills one more time for finals in the evening. Coach Maxime joined in with most of DSSC’s Top Age Group to participate in this format.

The “A” format was in the afternoon and allowed swimmers to experience some Long Course racing. Registered DAG and Compdev swimmers participated in this session in a squad of 16 swimmers strong.

Team Sungod displayed a lot of good results: Some new Provincial Tier 1 qualifying times were achieved by Kayah Apanowicz (11) in 50 FR LC, Michael Yang (12) in the 100 FLY LC, and Marcus Hugo Viloria (12) in the 100 and 200 FLY LC. In addition, Hailey Penner (15) got her 50 FR Tier II standard, and Hannah Milic (17) got hers in 200 FLY and 400 IM. There also was a significant number of finalists, lowering their personal marks in the evening sessions.
