Qualicum All-Level

PCS returned from the Qualicum All-level meet with a bag full of ribbons and a pretty happy group after swimming very well. Fourteen swimmers from Tomoko and Mark's group took part on the Sunday of Ravensong's meet. Coming home with one new AAA swimmer Alyssa Bakken (10) who has been working hard and swimming fast this year after joining competitive swimming approximately one year ago. Her 1:18.00 in the 100 backstroke would have put her 12th at this years short course AAA Championships just over one month ago. She would have preferred to have made it in her favorite event, the 50 freestyle, but as luck would have it she got disqualified for a quick start.

Our other highlight swim of the meet was Johnny Luo who made his AA goal in the 13-14 age group swimming 2:49.10 in the 200 IM. Johnny didn't join the rest of the group who were in Vancouver last weekend picking up a swim bag full of hardware at the Dynamo meet but made his presence known in Qualicum winning a number of events.

Lancaster was very pleased with his swimmers performances on the weekend. Lancaster commented "This meet was well done considering that the swimmers came back from Vancouver last weekend and swam hard all week, did Swim-A-Thon on Saturday morning and then went to the meet and swam pretty well."
