Brad Reid Memorial Invitational

Jy Lawrence

This past Friday through Sunday Youth Provincial, Western Development, National Development and Junior Provincial competed in Coquitlam.

Junior Provincial
The Junior Provincial group had 11 swimmers compete over the weekend. Two swimmers got their first official Divisional time in 50 Breaststroke. Sarocha A also competed in a total of 18 races! She made every final in all the events she swam in. Great job! Jolene Z had great underwaters off her walls which stood out against her competiton. She also swam her very first 400 IM. Coach Laiken was very proud of her swimmers as they all raced their first 100 Fly and did a great job! 

Youth Provincial 
The Youth Provincial group had a VERY successful weekend. As a group we had 51 swims qualify for finals over the three days! We had some big milestones reached by our swimmers. John L achieved his first Divisionals standard in 200 IM. Molly Z achieved her first Divisionals standard in 50 Breast (and is very close to the Provincials time). Vanessa R achieved her first Provincials standard in 100 Fly (and is close to many more Provincial and Western times). We also had many more times reached by swimmers already qualified. Ethan Z, Carys E, Laura Z and Tim G are all very close to a few Divisionals standards as well - keep working! The group is really pushing each other and we are excited for what's to come in the next few months!

Western Development
We had 17 swimmers from this group compete in the meet, which was our first opportunity to race a heats and finals meet since March 2020. Some notable swims: Cyan N had a fantastic 400 IM and just barely missed his Western Standard, Kailyn F broke a minute for the first time in the 100 Free, Alan D raced at his first official winter swim meet since joining PSW and Peter C and Delphine W did a great job of their underwater skills that they have been working on in training!

National Development
The entire group competed in this competition and we had quite a few notable swims. Noteable mentions: Tristan S won all 3 breaststroke events and broke the meet record in the 200 Breast, Daniel W put together a very solid 400 Free negatively splitting the race, Brielle W swam 18 races and made finals in every single event she swam and Elden W put together a very strong 400 IM (so close to breaking 5 mins).
