29 of our Hollyburn Hurricanes Swimmers participated in Development Meet on Sunday, April 15th – one more swimmer achieved LMR time standard!
Congratulations to all of our swimmers for their efforts on Sunday – honorable mention goes to Griffin Cassidy for his 200 IM LMR qualifying time of 3:50.57! Little brother Hunter did best times in all of his events, along with Sidney Clement, Thomas Dignum, Abbey Heard, Naomi Kanga, Soliel Kerfoot, Kianna Shahbazi, Charlotte Stanwood and Antonio Sutherland. Every other swimmer did at least one best time, showing us all that their efforts in the pool are really paying off. Jade Clement, Corentin Caer, Connor Chapman, Abbey Heard and Soliel Kerfoot all swam 200 IM with very impressive results as well. Quincy Bender, Alex Haigh, Gabe Ross-Wilson and Charlotte Stanwood all swam 100 IM on Sunday – this is an important building block to the 200 IM, as it challenges our swimmers to be fast at all four strokes AND to become proficient at the specialized turns to be preformed at each wall. This often takes at least two years of training to achieve – well done swimmers! It is so exciting to see our swimmers improving so quickly and consistently – way to go Hurricanes!
