PAC Coast Invite Meet!
Pac Coast Invitational   May 14-16, 2010
96 Bellevue Club swimmers moseyed once again to the King County Aquatic Center to compete in this year’s Pac Coast Invitational. Our swimmers raced hard, performed well, and despite the fact we didn’t have most of our senior team entered in the majority of the meet, still managed a 6th place overall finish. 
There were several fast swims and great individual performances over the course of the weekend, but special note must be made of the 1500 performances on Friday. 11 swimmers entered the mile, 4 of who (Savannah Lemke, Lily Morris, Dane Williams, Andy Wingerson) were swimming the event for the first time. The remaining 7 swimmers dropped a combined 5 minutes of time from their races, with the breakdown as follows: Michelle Francios (-31 seconds), Steven Ponnoosamy (-14.3 seconds), Steve Shouldra (-9.2 seconds), Marco Stanchi (-30 seconds), Paolo Stanchi (-90.5 seconds), and Lianna Sutich (-125.9 seconds).
The long list of swimmers who achieved 100% best times include: Shannon An, Jake Beauchamp, Jaime Doucette, Mitchell Eggenberger, Thomas Eggenberger, Rahul Gupta, Kelly Holton, Lynden Kuwada, Ryan Lei, Tesslyn Matthes, Erin McAllister, Maeve Murdoch, Cyssi Ngo, Leo Ngo, Naomi Ngo, Steven Ponnoosamy, Michael Shum, Ben Whitty, Drake Willard, Dane Williams, and Emma Wrightson.
Nice job Bellevue Club! The first two meets have been a great start to the long course season. Let’s keep up the good work!
