We had 2 meets this past weekend. AAA at Dal in Halifax and AA in Wolfville.
Ben Shellnutt had 6 personal best records in Halifax, followed closely by Alex Bouchard who had 5 PB's and broke three club records.
Faith Piro swam long course for her first AAA meet and posted very competitive times, all PB's for her. Oliver Porter posted 2 PB's Saturday afternoon. A great showing by SBSC!
In Wolfville, our team did a great job lowering many of their existing times. Lyndsay Beaton was a superstar taking lots of time off...7 seconds in 100 free, placing 2nd in her age group and also 2nd in 100 fly.
Justin Ward lowered his times in the 800 free and 1500 free, winning the 800 free and beating his own club record. Eric Schillinger almost broke the club record in the 200 fly, only missing the time by 1 second and placing 1st in the event.
Trevor Rollins had 2 PB's over the weekend and posted a fairly quick lap on the track outside. Jorja posted many PB's and is so close to those AAA times. Josh completed his first ever 1500 in 23 minutes -- an excellent time for his first swim!
We had a fantastic time in Wolfville once again. We had a team dinner at Boston Pizza Saturday evening and a delicious breakfast cooked by Eric Ward Saturday morning. The smell was delicious enough to wake Illy from a deep sleep.
Well done Bluefins!
