It was a very fast meet with swimmers coming from all over including clubs from Canada and Mexico. All PST swimmers did superbly well and improving on their personal best times. Special congratulations to Simon Lins who won the 50m and 100m Backstroke and made finals in almost all of his events.
Western Zone Age Group Championships:
Simon Lins represented Pacific Swimming at last week's Western Zone Age Group Championships in Roseville, CA. To compete in this meet the top swimmers were chosen from their LSC and competed against other LSCs from the Western Zone. Simon made finals in all of his events and placed in the top 3 in multiple of them. He was part of the winning 12&U Pacific 400m Freestyle, 400m Medley, 200m Medley and 200m Freestyle relay team. Simon was the lead off swimmer in 3 of them and his 400m Medley relay broke a new Western Zone record and 200m Medley relay broke a new Pacific Swimming record. Pacific Swimming came 1st overall.
