Division III Team Championships

Posted by on Nov 26, 2012

Your coaching staff is very excited and proud to announce our Team Roster for the Division III Team Championships being held at the Etobicoke Olympium on December 14-16. Its an exhausting process and we researched every possible angle of team performance. The meet is a TEAM-ORIENTED meet, and with individuals and relays scoring points to 8th place, careful consideration was given to maximizing our best point performance opportunity, particularly in the relays, which by the way, also score double the value of individual swims. As a team, we are also limited to ONLY 25 swimmers in our Division. (It is 30 swimmers in Division II and 40 swimmers in Division I). We are also limited to 5 individual swims per athlete in the entire meet, so while some of our best swimmers will score well in the meet, their individual impact on total team points in also a limited. Athletes are also allowed to “swim up” in age groups for relays.

Brantford, November 9-11, 2012 – Recently we sent 11 qualified swimmers to the Swim International at the Wayne Gretzky Sports Complex in Brantford. The Swim International meet, now in its 37th year, drew nearly 900 of the fastest swimmers in the country.

Several Whitby Dolphins swimmers had tremendous swims placing them in the top group of the Canadian rankings board, in their age group. Abby Gowland(12) won gold in the 50m Free with a stunning 28.30, leading from start to finish. That result put her ranked 2nd in Canada.

Ethan Placek(10) won gold in the  50m Free in a new Club Record time of 31.98! Outracing the field by 5 seconds, Ethan also won gold in the 100m free with a smokin’ 1:10.63, setting another new Club Record! That’s the 3rd fastest 10 year old time in Canada this year!

Making it to finals in this very tough field were Cassandra Muldoon in the 100 Breaststroke, Victoria Giglio in the 100m backstroke and Idriss Eddahani in the 200 Fly!

Congratualtions to the following Whitby Dolphins swimmers who also made the tough qualification times to swim at this event – Vanessa Carpino, Evan Cvitkovic, Sarah Hawkins, Judson Nickerson, Max Schindler and Meghan Smith.
