Tier I Summer Champs Review

Five swimmers represented the Hurricanes at the SwimBC Tier 1 Summer Championships this past weekend in Kelowna. The girls had a great meet, with best times in 35 of their 39 events!

Keala raced to best times in all of her events, including a fantastic time of 1:07.47 in the 100m Freestyle! She also had big improvements in her 200m Freestyle, 200m Breaststroke and 200m Individual Medley races!

Meghan set three new team records in the 50m Freestyle 33.72, 200m Freestyle 2:39.19 and 200m Individual Medley 3:06.18! Meghan had huge drops in her 200m Backstroke and 400m Individual Medley events!

Tessa had a fantastic meet at her first provincial championships! Tessa bettered her time in the 200m Freestyle by 10 seconds, her 200m Breaststroke by 8 seconds and her 50m Freestyle by 3 seconds!  

Emily showed a lot of speed improving her times in all but one of her events with the highlight being her great 100m Freestyle swim of 1:07.48! She also broke 1:20 for the first time in the 100m Butterfly and 30 for the first time on her 50m Freestyle relay split! Her 200m Freestyle, 200m Individual Medley and 50m Freestyle were all fantastic swims!

Natalie was very impressive throughout the meet with her best results of 1:09.80 in the 100m Butterfly and 28.99 in the 50m Freestyle, both club records! Natalie raced well in all of her events and just missed adding events to her Tier 2 list in the 100m Backstroke, 200m Individual Medley, 100m Freestyle and 200m Backstroke!

We had outstanding relay swimming at the meet. Keala, Natalie, Meghan and Emily all raced to best times in the 4x50m Freestyle Relay, racing to 6th place overall! In the 4x50m Medley Relay Emily, Meghan, Natalie and Keala all had great swims to score points with a 15th place finish.
