BRST's Senior swimmers travelled to Plantation this past weekend for the Senior Long Course Sectional Qualifier. The meet was attended by a mix of International swimmers and Florida Gold Coast Teams.

"BRST senior group attended the sectional qualifier tired from training and it showed in the second session", BRST head coach Allan Williams said. "The swimmers soldiered on and did the best they could. Some of the older swimmers lead fearless despite being tired."

Elizabeth Sikes (16) and David Genz (19) were the top finishers for BRST and Lara Caglayan (15) was the swimmer of the meet with 4 best times.  Coach Allan said "The new swimmers in the senior group are making their mark and swimming very well were Peter Domokos, Cassandra Genz and Mariana Spada."
