Division Champs Swimmers Score Well!!
April 5, 2010
Spring Divisional Champs 3/27-28
The last big meet of the 2009-10 short course season was just that. BIG!! 36 teams and 1,276 swimmers gathered at the King County Aquatic Season to cap off a season of hard work with one last short course meet.
The twelve and under categories participated in a pentathlon format, in which the top eight qualifiers earned certificates for their performances. The 13 and over swimmers competed for the opportunity to qualify for finals; the top 24 earning second swims, with the top 16 scoring.
Bellevue Club swimmers swam fast and scored well. For the Twelve and unders, the motivation to finish in the top 8 propelled several swimmers into inspiring performances. The same can be said for the 13 and over swimmers, who when faced with the opportunity to compete in finals showed they could step up their performance and go faster than they ever thought.
BCST finished the meet with a fifth place overall performance. Congratulations go out to all the swimmers who not only raced hard over the weekend, but trained hard all season long. The coaches are proud of all the hard work you’ve done!
