VPSC Winter Invitational Recap

Jy Lawrence

This past weekend PSW also had 11 swimmers compete from Western and National Development at UBC at the inaugural VPSC Winter Invitational. This swim meet brought swimmers from BC as well as Alberta to compete in a three day heats and finals format.

This meet was filled with best times and exciting standards including:

Brynn Firth achieved her first Trials Standard in the girls 50 back as well as numerous Western Standards
Alan Deng swam to his first Provincial Standard in the boys 50 and 100 Free
Tristan Schanz broke the Club Record in the Senior Boys 50 Breaststroke as our first athlete under 30 seconds in this event!

Other notable mentions were Elden W's 100 breast where he just missed the Trials cut by 0.08 seconds and Sergey C who matched the club record in the 15-17 100 butterfly. Kailyn F and Ana C also achieved new Western Standards and Sergey C got under the Trials cut in the 200 Back.

These swimmers will race again in January or February, but PSW has swimmers from all three Senior groups and Youth Provincial racing this weekend in Richmond at Fast Swim!
