The inclusion of the mixed relays and the format of relay Heat/Finals made for a physically, mentally challenging week. PCS stayed tough and averaged 25pts per swimmer.. one of the highest in the competition.

PCS had four individual finalists and one Relay on the final pool day.

In the 400m Freestyle Naeva Scott-Bouris capped off an exemplary week with another killer performance taking the silver in 4:27 in 14 and U. Sophie Lorette moved up one spot to finish fifth at 4:24(15 and Over). And Anthony Gutierrez peeled off 3 seconds to finish 3rd in the B Final for 15 and U at 4:12.

The boy’s relay, (Rambo, Schmidt, Ogilvie, Gutierrez) qualified 8th with a club record but really got to work in the final to slice off a further 3 seconds rising to 5th in 3:57.
