The Dinos continued to race well. Lots more personal best were swum in the morning heats and swimmers advanced through to the finals. It can be a bit tricky figuring out your overall placing as clubs are split into two pools and results are combined when the event is complete.  It is nice having the morning sessions finish before noon. It gives the swimmers (and coaches\parents) lots of time to rest between sessions.

Saturday finals started off with the 200 back followed by the 50 breast, 100 fly, 200 IM, 100 free and the 4 x 50 Medley Relay.

Kamryn Cannings started off the evening for the Dinos placing 7th in the girls 12 & under 200 back. Aiden Norman shaved another 4 seconds off his personal best from this morning capturing the bronze medal in an impressive 2:20.74. Charles Wang finished off the event placing 6th in the 16 & over 200 back with a time of 2:09.00.

The 50 breast was loaded with lots of excitement as Alicia L’Archeveque dashed her was to a new club record snagging the silver medal in the girls 13-14 age group with a time of 33.49.
