CONGRATULATIONS to Carter, Katie, Lauren and David for their outstanding performances at the Canadian Junior Swimming Championships at the Pan-Am Pool in Winnipeg July 25-29. Over 700 swimmers from 147 clubs across Canada and several international squads raced over the 5 days of competition, and our 4 swimmers finished their season with some "next level" swimming.
Between them was a total of 18 individual events, and in 16 of those events a new lifetime best was achieved, a conversion rate of 88.8%, which you can be sure was much, much higher than the meet average.
Carter and David both raced in the "A" finals, Carter with a highest finish of 4th in the 200m backstroke, establishing a 13/14 boys club record in the process, which he added to with another club record and a 7th place finish in the 100m backstroke. Carter also had 2 swims in the B final. David placed 6th twice, in both the 100m and 200m backstroke events, with a club record in the 100m race, and had 3 other swims in the B final. Lauren raced to personal bests in 3 of her 4 swims and qualified for the B final in both the 200m breaststroke and the 400m freestyle, while Katie in her 200m backstroke achieved a personal best, winning her heat and improving her overall ranking in the girls 15-17 age category from 41st to 27th.
Way to go team, that's what we call "Finishing Strong!"
