Surrey LC Invitational Review

The Hurricanes were represented by seven swimmers at the Surrey Knights LC Invitational this past weekend. It was our first chance to race long course this season and the swimmers did a great job competing in the 50m format at this point of their training.

Josh broke the 14&under boys record in the 400m Individual Medley and just missed all best times with a quick start in the 50m Freestyle! Olivia had her fastest 50m Butterfly and finished the meet with a well split 200m Freestyle best time! Quincy set new club records in all of her events with fast butterfly swimming and went 1:00.00 to almost break a minute in the 100m Freestyle! Natalie swam to all best times with strong initial speed in all of her races! Lucas raced to his best time in the 50m Freestyle and had fast finishes in all of his races! Jessica had a great 100m Breaststroke just missing her best by .3 after dealing with an injury heading into the meet. Morgan just missed her best in the 50m Butterfly!

In general our team swam very well the first 30-35m in the 50m format and needs to work on keeping speed up in the last 15-20m each length. Splitting in 200-400m events was strong and a good indication of our training helping them finish mid-distance events. We have swim meets coming up the next three weekends and the swimmers will start feeling better with easy speed as we come down from the impressive amount of work we've accomplished so far this season!
