PCS Wins Big at BC Seniors

Pacific Coast Swimming had a number of winners over the weekend at the 2003 Team Aquatic Supplies BC Senior Circuit. Christin Petelski (Breast), John Stamhuis (IM), Dave Creel (Distance Free) and Jesse Jacks (Fly) were all named the overall winners of the BC Senior Circuit in their respective categories.

The BC Senior Circuit is based on three meets throughout the short course season. The first was back in October in Victoria and the second in Richmond in January. The third and final meet was held this past weekend in Vancouver. Over the three meets swimmers earn series points and the athlete who accumulates the most points in each category over the three meets receives a cheque for $500.00 from Team Aquatic Supplies.

Here is how our swimmers claimed the overall titles: Creel won the 1500 freestyle on Friday and added a bronze medal in the 400 freestyle on Saturday to solidify his place in top spot among the BC Senior Circuit points for the men's distance freestyle category. Jacks won the 200 butterfly and picked up a silver in the 100 fly to claim the overall butterfly category. Petelski was second in the 200 breaststroke and third in the 100 breaststroke to claim the women's breaststroke title while John Stamhuis picked up the men's IM category finishing just ahead of Creel in the points standings.
