Seattle Senior Open Day 1

Jon McKay and coach Ryan left for a competition in Seattle as many PCS swimmers headed on a mission to Kamloops for AAA's.  Jon was looking to get in some more competition before the upcoming National Championships in August, and is using this weekend as that preparation.  The meet is at the beautiful Colman Pool, located in Lincoln Park in South Seattle.  The pool is a 10 minute walk from the park's parking lot, and is located mere feet from the scenic beach.  An outdoor meet is rare for Canadian swimmers, and venues don't get much more beautiful than this one.
