PSW Winter Invitational Recap

PSW Winter Invitational Meet Recap

Four Hurricanes raced at the PSW Winter Invitational this past weekend in White Rock. The meet had senior entry standards (open age group) but our small group of young swimmers rose to the challenge and raced to outstanding long course results. This meet was a great opportunity for Morgan, Quincy, Jessica and Aidan to race as they prepare for Short Course AAA Championships in March.

Aidan and Quincy both qualified for Western Canadian Championships for the first time! Aidan qualified in the 100m Backstroke, 100m Freestyle and 50m Freestyle, he almost added two more in the 200m Freestyle and 200m Backstroke! Quincy set a new best time in the 50m Freestyle and equaled the Westerns standard! Jessica was already qualified in the 100m Breaststroke but added the 200m Breaststroke to her event list. We now have six swimmers qualified for Westerns – Morgan, Quincy, Avery, Sophie, Jessica and Aidan! The most swimmers the Hurricanes have previous sent was two!
