SKSC LC and SC competition

Jy Lawrence

This past Friday and Saturday PSW had swimmers race out at the Guildford Recreation Centre.

Youth Provincial
Long Course
We had 4 Youth Provincial swimmers attend the long course session on Friday night. Neil Z and Matthew C had a very impressive 200 free race where they pushed really hard and finished 0.01 apart. Vanessa R had a very strong 50 free and was close to her Westerns standard, while Borui Z had very promising results in his 100 Back and 100 Brst.
Congrats to Matthew C for his 11/12 yr old Boys club record in the 100 Brst!

Short Course
This was a great test of their mental toughness and they did a great job. Some standouts included a first Provincial standard by LJ L in the 11/12yr old 50 Back. Emily Y also got her first divisional standard of the season. Our 11/12 yr old Boys 4x50 free relay came quite close to the Provincial Record and will be working towards that over the next couple months.
 
Provincial Development
Provincial development had 12 swimmers compete on Saturday. These were very fast sessions with lots of back-to-back racing. Jim J got his first divisional time in the boys 13/14 50 Free! 
Vonzelle V, Maddy O, Ethan Z and Justin D all put in great effort for all individual and relay races. Good work everyone, onto Richmond FastSwim in a few weeks!

Western + National Development
23 swimmers competed Friday evening. This was a great opportunity to practice racing while under fatigue and now make some adjustments going into either VPSC Invitational or Fast Swim. Some standout preformances was Cyan N's 400 IM who put together a great swim in his first long course 400 IM and Ray C who put together a very speedy 50 Free.
