2013 sc AG Regionals: BCST Finishes in 3rd Place!!

2013 Age Group Regionals


We’ve gotten pretty used to outstanding showings at championship swim meets here at BCST, and this year’s Age Group Regional meet was no exception.  Competing against 130 other swim teams and the top age group swimmers from Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, Alaska, Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, BCST finished the weekend in third place overall.  It should be noted, however, that BCST boys finished first in Men’s scoring, edging Tualatin Hills by 9 points, and ahead of third place KING by 59 points.


But again, the story of the weekend was the overall collective effort of BCST swimmers.  Our kids swam their hearts out all weekend long, amassing several best times, finals swims, and individual and relay champions.  Here’s a breakdown of some statistics:


·        5 new team records

·        16 individual event champions. 

·        6 first place relay finishes. 

·        20 individuals with 100% best times


Bellevue Club coaches are once again tremendously proud of the efforts of our swimmers.  Not only for their fantastic swims, but especially of the countless hours of work they have put in to get to this point.  Well done, BCST swimmers.
