Spartan Santa LMR Recap

Jy Lawrence

This past weekend we had swimmers compete in Chilliwack from Junior Provincial, Junior Regional, Youth Regional and Youth Development!

Junior Provincial
There were a total of 10 Junior Provincial swimmers at the meet this past weekend. The group as a whole did an outstanding job swimming their 200 freestyle. Rhianna, Jolene and Jack specifically stood out by doing proper underwater kicks off the walls and getting to the flags every time! The most memorable swims from this weekend was from Jack W in his 200 Breaststroke focusing on driving his arms forward. Celeste L in her 50 Freestyle making sure she had a constant kick in addition to not breathing the last 10 meters into the wall. And Curtis X who had a fast stroke rate and constant kick throughout his 200 Backstroke. Coach Laiken is very proud of the group's team spirit and how they represented PSW! 

Regional and Youth Development
We had lots of exciting swims this past weekend: 
Hope B, Rachel C, Isabel G, Sophie H, Brandon H, Bill W and Tim Z got 100% best times! George C, Brandon H, Ella C, Luca N, Aanya S, Monica R and Daniel R all competed in their first LMR meet this weekend! Swimming a handful of new events they still all made sure to give their competitors a hard race which was thrilling to watch. Steve S, Ian Z and Taya T also raced their first 100 Fly event and congratulations to Kiefer L on achieving his first divisional time in the 200 Free! Great job to everyone who attended!
