Dear VJO Swimmers and Parents,
Marin Pirate Senior Meet Recap
The Senior Group had a fantastic 1st meet of the season! VJO took 15 senior swimmers to the Marin Pirates Senior II Meet in Novato, CA. Even though our group focus was improving technique, we had some fabulous swims that deserve recognition. We had 10 new Junior Olympic times achieved, two new Far Western times achieved, one new Pacific Recognizable Time (PRT) achieved, and one new team record set. Great job VJO!
Congratulations to Dylan Powell for setting a new team record in the 17-18 boys 200 Fly. Dylan swam the 200 Fly in 2:01.78 this weekend, breaking Mario deSenna’s record from 2002.
