Eight teams of 15 - 16 swimmers took to the pool for our Semester 2 PEP Relay. All teams had swimmers from each of the swim groups and were led by a coach and 2 Platinum/Gold swimmer captains: Bjorn, Tariq, Parker, Maggie, Deandra, Sean, Kuba, Sam, Lina, Kate, Misaki, Riwa, Jee Ooung, Cliona, Zachary and Phoebe.
The event began with a 4x100m Medley Relay Record attempt. The 13-14 year old Girls’ team was just 3.18 seconds off the record time set earlier this season at the Fall Invitational by Deandra Djunaedi, Himawari Namiki, Misaki Yokoi and Lina Nesteroff. The 13-14 year old Boys’ team of Parker Hughes, Sam Nesteroff, Bjorn Berntsen and Tariq Bethune managed to soundly surpass the existing record by turning in a stellar time of 4:43.35.
Again, the most exciting race of the day was the Inner Tube Push?Pull? Relay!
The meet ended with the Fun and Friendly 4x50m Freestyle Relay Swimmer and Coach Challenge. Great job in the pool by Coaches Rina, Renni, Berman and Max.
