Kamloops Classic Recap

We had a very exciting Kamloops Classic over the past weekend with incredible results throughout the club! For many of our swimmers it was their final official meet of the season and they did not disappoint with strong long course swimming throughout. The first day had great sprinting in the 50m Backstroke and 50m Freestyle events, as well as our 200m Butterfliers doing a fantastic job! The highlight of the second day was the fast 100m Freestyles with some very strong efforts in the 200m Backstroke and Breaststroke events. The final day saw an overall great showing in all four of the events. We broke 18 club records at the meet, by far our best showing of the season including over half of the 12&under girls records! Hurricanes also raced to 27 new time provincial time standards at the meet, with our Roscoe qualifying for AAA Provincials and Sophie qualifying for AA Provincials!

We had fantastic relay swimming with our 10&under girls (Sidney, Laura, Amanda, Kiana, Isabelle) racing to two silver medals and our 12&under boys (Aidan, Kourosh, Lucas, Alex, Josh) also placing second overall twice.  Our 11-12 girls (Abbey, Avery, Quincy, Morgan) just missed the podium in both relays.

There were a lot of great individual stories, here are a few. Aidan had a very exciting meet and got better each session racing to seven medals! Chris had a very impressive meet, despite just missing his goal of a third Canadian Age Group Championships time (by .14 and .17 in the 50m Free and 50m Fly as well as 2.18 in the 200m Back) he was bests in the morning and again at night in every race! Sophie qualified for AA Provincials with her time in the 100m Breast and then raced to her first ever AAA Provincial time standard in the 50m Breast! Morgan had our best 200m IM, racing all four strokes very well and improved in all of her top events, setting records and moving up the standards heading into AAA Provincials! Quincy had a huge drop in the 200m Butterfly, two records and improved her racing in every event! Kourosh raced to his first AA time in a qualifying event in the 50m Freestyle!  Marisa had a AA qualifying swim in the 50m Freestyle as well! Roscoe needed his AAA time standard in the 200m Backstroke and took off five seconds with a huge morning swim to qualify for AAA Championships! Lucas raced to his first two A time standards and had a great meet with numerous second swims! Sidney had a great overall meet and narrowly missed her AA time by just .28! Amanda had her first A time standard leading off the freestyle relay with a great swim! Kiana raced to her first A time standard in the 50m Freestyle! Josh raced consistently well and was even under the AA time standard in his 50m Freestyle on the relay! Thomas was very busy racing to second swims in all eight of his events, consistently finishing hard and posting best times!

Everyone was best times in the majority of their events. We had seven swimmers hit 100% best times: Quincy, Thomas, Roscoe, Avery, Lucas, Sophie and Adam! And another six swimmers just miss 100% best times by one event: Morgan, Josh, Alex, Grace, Chris and Kourosh!

An exciting meet for all swimmers involved, we now look forward for our year end team events, our Team Fun Meet on Friday, June 19th and our Awards Banquet on Sunday, June 21st.
