We had an incredible meet April 24-26 in Victoria!  It was the first heats and finals meet of the long course season and we had spirited racing from all of our 26 swimmers!  Based on the psych sheets our swimmers should have made finals in 70 total events and we had 81 finals swims over the weekend as swimmers raced to best times and moved up the rankings!  Almost all of our swimmers also had a great chance to swim relays on Saturday night with everyone getting up and sprinting for the teammates! 

We had nine swimmers race to 100% long course best times at the meet!  Congratulations to Morgan, Isabelle, Naomi, Avery, James, Kiana, Aidan, Sophie and Ella!  Another six swimmers just missed 100% best times by one event:  Josh, Thomas, Amanda H, Abbey, Megan and Kourosh!  Great swimming for this early in the long course season! 

We had 12 new club records at the meet!  A great sign for the rest of the long course season!
