The Hurricanes had a great time racing short course at the Surrey Summer Invitational July 22-23. For most of the swimmers it was their final meet of the year and a fantastic way to see their improvement through the entire season. Morgan, Quincy and Jessica used the meet as their final tune-up before Canadian Junior Championships in Toronto July 26-30.
