WA State SR Champs!

BCST Seniors Swimmers had a very successful performance at this year’s Washington State SR Championships.  The team finished 3rd overall, right on the heels of Cascade Swim Club and comfortably ahead of Issaquah Swim Team. 


As the meet’s title states, this meet was for all the teams and swimmers that reside in the state of Washington.  This is the second attempt at executing this meet as last year’s meet was essentially cancelled by snow and ice.  This year 38 teams, 584 swimmers competed in the 4 day prelim/finals meet at KCAC. 


This is a true state championship meet unlike HS State where the schools are divided up and the event opportunities are limited, not to mention that there are a number of top Senior swimmers who do not swim for their HS team.  Winners of events can truly claim to be state champions and we had two swimmers who fit that category.


Congratulations to Ethan Hallowell and Paolo Stanchi.  Both won individual events at the meet.  Ethan was first in the 50 Free, 100 Free, and 200 Free.  Paolo placed first in the 400 IM and 200 Breast.  In addition to the first places Ethan was also 9th in the 100 Back and Paolo was 3rd in the 200 IM, 8th in the 100Back, and 5th in the 200 Back. Great work guys.


These were not the only outstanding performances from BC swimmers.  Congratulation to these swimmers who placed in the top 16 in their individual events.
