PTAC would like to extend a special congratulations to two (2) of our 11-12 year swimmers, Austin Prokopec and Ben Yant.
Austin and Ben were recruited and qualified for the 2015 Eastern Zones Short Course Championship meet and have officially been accepted. This meet is hosted by USA Swimming and will take place March 25 through 28, 2015 in Webster, New York.
Austin will participate in the following events: 200 Free, 500 Free, 200 Back, 200 IM and 100 Free
Ben will participate in the following events: 200 Free, 500 Free, 200 Fly and 200 Breast
Each LSC may only enter three (3) swimmers per individual event and one (1) team per relay event in the 10 & Under and 11-12 age categories. As you can see from the above criteria, Austin and Ben worked hard through their participation with Allegheny Mountain Swimming in order to achieve this opportunity.
The opportunity to be a part of a Zones team is a tribute to PTAC and our coaching staff, but more importantly to the hard work and dedication of these two (2) young swimmers. It is of special note that both boys considered foregoing their own opportunities to attend the Zones meet in order to stay and compete with the rest of the PTAC team at CRL Winter Champs meet.
Please remember to extend a well-deserved congratulations to Austin and Ben the next time you see them on the pool deck!
