VPSC Meet Recap

VPSC Sprint Meet Recap

28 Hurricanes raced at the VPSC Sprint Meet October 24-25 with incredible early season results!  Over half (15!) of the swimmers raced to 100% best times at the meet. With another 10 swimmers just missing 100% best times by one or two events. For the first meet of the season it was great to see the team get into racing mode so quickly! Two team records (Avery and Morgan in the 12&under Girls) and numerous new time standards as swimmers returned to short course racing.

The meet was scored based off of each swimmer’s nine event add-up. We had four swimmers place in the top ten for their age group!
Amanda Yang – 4th in the 10 year old Girls
Kourosh Shahbazi – 9th in the 12 year old Boys
Aidan Smith – 5th in the 13 year old Boys
Chris Ruus – 5th in the 15&over Boys

Our competitive swimmers will now train towards the Hyack Fall Into Finals Meet and the Langley Invitational Swim Meet, both taking place the November 13-15th weekend.
