BBST Blowfish demonstrate strong all-around abilities at home Pentathlon

  The Bellingham Bay Swim Team (BBST) Blowfish hosted 160 swimmers from around the region April 26 at the Arne Hanna Aquatic Center in Bellingham for the 2008 Blowfish Spring Pentathlon.   The pentathlon rewards swimmers for their all-around ability by combining the total time from 5 events: one in each of the four competitive strokes and an Individual Medley swim (an event in which competitors swim all four strokes in succession).   BBST had 60 swimmers participate in the meet and took home the many of the awards given to the Top 6 swimmers in each division.  Placing in the top 3 overall were: Bliss Cui (1st place - 9 year old girls), Rowan King (1st place - 9 year old boys), Shea Mielke ( 3rd place - 9 year old boys), Cole Avery (1st place - 10 year old boys), Jonathan Chang (2nd place - 10 year old boys), Taylor Shewchuck (3rd place - 11 year old girls), Rylie Martin (3rd place - 13 year old girls), Andy Small (1st place - 13 year old boys), Alan Cui (2nd place - 13 year old boys) Jessica Vlasic (1st place - 14 & over girls), Ali Fisher (3rd place - 14 & over girls), Austin Fish (2nd place - 14 & over boys).  The meet was a great success thanks to the numerous BBST parental volunteers and officials.
