Report prepared by Head Coach Malwina Bukszowana
On the first day of AAA BC Championships we had only long distance Freestyle events and Rennes Lindsay was the only WGB girl swimming in 800 Free.
Rennes looked good on the warm up and she held the pace she was training for really well, she swam 9:35.12 which is 11 seconds faster than her best time and she came 8th in her age group category. It was a good start for the swim meet.
Second day brought us 3 finals.
Hannah Kingscote swam 100 Back A final in 1:07.28 finishing 6th and this gave her a first qualifying time for National AG Championships this summer.
Rennes (13) won silver in 400 Free (4:34.00) and she swam faster than a required qualifying time for National Age Group Championships for age 14.
She also qualified to B final and came 16th in her age group category in 200 IM.
Cassis Lindsay beat her best time in 200 IM.
The third day brought us 3 finals.
Older sister Cassis qualify to A final in 100 Free and she finished on the 6th place.
Younger sister Rennes swam 400 IM in A final finishing 8th and she swam 100 Free in B final and she finished 13th.
We had a fun battle to watch in 50 Fly event in the morning. Hannah and Rennes swam in the same heat and both of them wanted to be ahead of the other. Both of them were talking to each other's saying who is going to be faster and how they are going to make it happen. It ended up that Rennes touched the wall 0.01 sec earlier before Hannah, finishing 8th and Hannah was 9th.
On the last day Cassis qualified to A final in 50 Free. She swam faster than her best time and after 27.23 sec she touched the wall 6th.
Her younger sister Rennes swam A final in 200 Free and finished 7th.
