BBST sent 23 swimmers to Mukilteo for the Divisional Champs this weekend and they performed exceptionally well. Two swimmers medalled in the 13 & Over Finals, with Molly McGuire winning 1st in 200 Back, 2nd in 200 IM, and 3rd in the 100 Free, and Erin Schick earning a 2nd place medal in the 100 Breast.
The 10 & Unders did a great job. Alex and Mathew Daluiso competed in their first out of town meet, and young Sam Hunter made a new Age Group Sectional cut in his 50 Free! In addition, Sam placed 4th in his age group for the Pentathlon awards, and Gavin Baker placed 3rd in HIS age group! Congratulations!
The 11 & 12 year old swimmers all had big drops in their times with Shaye Fowler taking 2nd place over all in the Pentathlon! Way to go Shaye! After the meet Shaye was overheard to say that she now understands what it means to apply "passion" to her swimming!
Happy Belated Birthday to Meng-Wei Chen who turned 12 on Sunday...and a big thanks to her family for bringing a cake for all the 11 & 12 year olds to enjoy.
Finally...a special congratulations go out to both Roy Evans and Rudi Berry for being amazing athletes! Roy Evans came to Mukilteo for the morning session, made finals, went to a SOCCER game...scored his team's 2 goals...and then came BACK to swim in finals that night! Rudi ran a 10k race on Saturday and toughed it out to swim through the pain on Sunday! Way to go boys!
