Team Report – Central Region LC Championships

Team Report – Central Region LC Championships

Etobicoke, June 7-10, 2012- Recently, our 16 qualified swimmers were at the Etobicoke Olympium for Central Region Long Course Championships (entry to the meet requires that swimmers attain at least  a “B” time according to the Jr. Provincial standards – see below for a link to those standards). We may have had a small group of dolphins in attendance but their performances were mighty. This meet starts the long course championship season (beginning with Centrals and ending with Age Group Nationals) and brings together some of the fastest swimmers in Central Ontario. It’s a fast meet with “all out” swims as competitors vie for the next championship level – Provincials.

Judson Nickerson had an outstanding weekend swimming to silver and bronze medals in the 11 & under category and adding to his provincial qualifications.

We had several swimmers make multiple top 8 finishes(which is not an easy feat at this level of competition). Congratulations Spencer Beatty, Sarah Hawkins, Judson Nickerson, Ethan Placek, Benoit Potvin, Abby Spadzinski

Congratulations to first time Central qualifiers Vanessa Carpino and Anne Vieira who had outstanding swims!

Summer Team Champs Success

Posted by on Jun 19, 2012

Wow..what a weekend! Two days, six sessions, 26 teams and over 1200 swimmers – Congratulations Whitby Dolphins – we did it!

Thank you to all members for pulling together as a team and giving generously – your time,  food donations, gift baskets and other donations. It’s a great reflection of  just how strong our team is.

An enormous THANK YOU goes to Thomas Guy and CORA – Breakfast and lunch restaurants. They donated all the water as well as a lot of our food totaling over $1000. So next time you feel like going out for breakfast or lunch…please think of CORA and support them the way they supported us.

Everyone on deck was raving about the food! A big thank you to our kitchen team- KellyAnn Carpino, Fanchea Barrieau, Karen Wilson, Tracy Taube, Sue Bushe, Roseanne Morrell, Dana Madill, Beau and Nadine (Michelle Campbell’s parents), Sal Barreto and two swimmers Soleil Wheler and Ethan Placek.  We received many compliments that ours were the best lunches ever served at the Olympium.

And not to be forgotten, the reason we were all there … Along side the flurry of activity behind the scenes, our swimmers were in the water swimming best times and winning heats against some very tough competition … a  full team report is coming soon!
