SwimBC Open Water Championships Review
Congratulations to our six girls who competed in the SwimBC Open Water Championships! Morgan, Quincy, Jade, Sidney, Cami and Olivia all raced in Thetis Lake on July 9th. Quincy, Morgan, Sidney and Olivia all competed in the 13-14 2km race while Jade and Cami raced the 15&over 5km swim. It was a great race for all of our swimmers, gaining more open water race experience and everyone displayed strong strategy during their race!
In the 13-14 2km Open Water, Quincy raced to 6th place with a great race to the finish and a time of 27:50.26! Morgan led her pack and finished 9th in 29:34.81! Sidney was 12th overall in 29:50.05 with a much better feel for drafting! Olivia did her first open water race and finished 13th with a time of 29:56.11! In the 15-18 5km Open water, Jade had a strong swim with a solid time of 1:20:11.13 over four loops of the lake!
