The Winter Festival in Cochrane was a fun meet for our Dinos. The first of it's kind in Alberta, it was created as another racing opportunity for the younger swimmers and it was just that. There were so many things going on last weekend. A prize table for winning your heat had all the kids racing fast to try and win new swim bags, goggles, etc. A bunch of our swimmers were also awarded "Top 5" T-Shirts for their age group. There were also 6 heats of Finals for 50 Fr and 50 Back so it gave a chance for some swimmers that might find it difficult to make it to Finals in other meets, a chance to race a second time and be a part of the excitement. We had some really exciting swim offs that occurred as well with 3 of our Dinos getting to race for higher spots in the Finals. Congratulations to all our "Top 5" athletes this weekend: Maxine Clark, Sienna Rodgers, Adam Al Seafan, Malak Beshry, and Cash Verjee. Special congratulations to all the swimmers who got new standards over the weekend and a big congratulations goes out to Malak Beshry who achieved his very first Provincial qualifying time of the season. Way to go Dinos!
