Development Meet Review

Hollyburn Development Meet Review

Congratulations to the 22 swimmers who raced at our Development Meet on Sunday! 

The biggest story was the incredible swimming in the 200m Individual Medley! Alayna Michieli took off 18 seconds to qualify for LMR (Lower Mainland Region) Meets with a time of 3:43.91! Meghan Haigh also qualified for LMR Meets dropping 13 seconds off her time for a 3:58.39! The four minute mark is a big barrier to qualify for LMR Meets and we had a number of other great swims that should be under the time the next time they get off the blocks! Jessica LaVallie took off 23 seconds and finished with a 4:09.93! Both James Reid and Thomas Reid swam their first 200m IM and finished with fast times of 4:08.55 and 4:09.85!  Jessica Tidball took off 9 seconds to reach a time of 4:14.69!

Great to see Jason Fu, Tessa Harris and Brooke Johannson all participate in their first Development Meet!

We also had a lot of young swimmers race 50m events for the first time! Congratulations to Sam Calder 50m Backstroke, Samuel Cowley 50m Backstroke, Jason Fu 50m Freestyle, Sarah Gunn 50m Backstroke, Jonathan Han 50m Backstroke and 50m Freestyle, Tessa Harris 50m Freestyle, Hana Horsman 50m Backstroke, Merhan Mansour 50m Breaststroke and 50m Freestyle, Keirsa Shariff 50m Backstroke and 50m Freestyle and Pasley Travers 50m Butterfly! 

A big thanks to the parents and swimmers who helped volunteer during our Development Meet! Thanks Durban, Jade, Sidney, Keala, Cami and Avery! We couldn’t have done it without you!

Swimmers in Discover 1 & 2 as well as Dream will now focus on training as they head into Spring Break. Their next Hollyburn Development Meet is June 5th and they can also sign up to race at the Yukon Championships in Whitehorse May 6-7 and the Whistler SeaWolves Invitational May 28-29!
