Hollyburn Development Meet Recap

33 Hurricanes competed at our Development Meet on Sunday! We had 30 swimmers in October and that was our best turn out in years, so great to see so many swimmers taking advantage of these racing opportunities.

Congratulations to Peter, James, Emma, Philipa, Evelyn and Jayjay who all competed in their first swim meet!

We had fantastic 200m Individual Medley races! Zach, Hana and Erika all broke 4:00 to qualify for LMR Meets. Zach went 3:44.70 breaking the LMR time by 15 seconds! Hana finished with a time of 3:57.51 with a big effort on her last length to get under the time! Erika took off 35 seconds from her previous best and had a great touch to just break 4:00 with a 3:59.23 to qualify for LMR Meets! Sarah just missed the LMR time by a second, very impressive for her first time racing the event! Claire and Alessandra both took off four seconds from their best times and are getting closer and closer to their LMR standard. In the 100m Individual Medley Cameron took off seven seconds from last month, while Kennedy, Kiera James and Andy all completed the event for the first time!

Our youngest swimmers showed a lot of speed in their 25m Freestyle events, great times by Payton, James, Emma, Philipa, Chloe, Evelyn, Roger and Jayjay! Everyone looks ready to do 50m Freestyles without a problem.
