SwimBC Senior Circuit Provided Opportunities for PCS

The second Senior Circuit was not the most exciting affair but PCS showed up to race. Held at UBC the meet was well run but had little 'atmosphere'. Still the crew of 14 from PCS swam well coming off of a tough training camp at home. Congratulations to Sophie Tarrant who took top spot in 50 and 200 BR and came second in 100 BR posting top in-season LC times. Michael Schmidt in spite of a recent knee issue, set a new 15-17 Club mark in 50 BR at 30.30, good enough for first place. He also came 7th in 100 BR.
