Summer Festival South was an awesome experience and travel meet for our younger UCSC athletes. The second meet of its kind in Swim Alberta history, UCSC sent 53 athletes - ranging from the Shouldice and Churchill programs, all the way up to Gold 11. All of the swimmers swam super well, achieving many best times and top 8 finishes. Highlights from the meet include Maxine Clark from Gold 11 smashing several club and provincial records, and Seth Michael-Ailuelohia, who broke the 50 free short course club record. The swimmers also had the chance to meet former UCSC swimmer, and Olympian, Jason Block. It's great to see UCSC get up and perform at these peak meets, as we head into the summer. Great job Dinos!
