PCS Swimmers Earn Hardware at SC Nationals

Edmonton - Three PCS Swimmers won medals at the 2002 Canadian Open Swimming Championships in Edmonton, Alberta this past weekend. David Creel led the way winning a silver medal on day one in the 800 freestyle and then claiming the bronze in the 1500 freestyle on the final day of the competition. Jesse Jacks won a bronze medal for the 100 butterfly while Philip Weiss won a bronze in the 200 butterfly. Jacks used a great last 25 meters to claim the bronze medal over a number of the countries best butterfly swimmers. With Phil Weiss climbing the podium in the 200 fly it marked his return to National level competition after a two year break from the sport.

Throughout the entire weekend the team had some great performances and have picked up where they left off after the Summer Nationals here in Victoria last August. The senior group will now be training hard through the Christmas break with a mini Camp in Portland and Nanaimo getting ready for the heavy meet schedule in January and February.

Looking towards the new year the group will be competing at the 2003 BC Senior Circuit # 2 in Richmond BC in early January and then on to the Canada West Championships in Calgary for the University eligible swimmers. The BC Senior Championships in Vancouver and the CIS Championships here in Victoria will be the main meets in February.
