Great winter in the pool underway

Posted by on Jan 24, 2015

What a great winter our club is having! Lots of meets, tonnes of best times, club records and qualifying times. We’re now heading into the championship season with last minute qualifying meets for the upcoming Central Region, Ontario Festival and Ontario Age Group Championships! Go dolphins!

Here’s a summary of where we’ve been over the past couple months.

BYST Fall Invitational
On November 22-23, 77 of our swimmers were in Belleville for a preparation swim meet and came back with very promising results. There were many strong swims, and a good indication of where our swimmers are this early in the season. With one month left before Team Champs, swimmers are looking strong in the water which is encouraging.

At this meet, 5 club records were broken: Ethan Placek broke the boys 11-12,  100 freestyle and 200 medley records. Jude Moss broke the boys 8 and under 25 butterfly, 25 and 5o backstroke records from 2001. Also of note, Benoit Potvin qualified for his first provincial event in the 200 butterfly. Congratulations to all swimmers!
