VPSC Takes Lead on Day 2 of 2013 LC AAAs

The second night of finals at the 2013 SwimBC Long Course AAA Championships proved to be a fruitful one for the host Vancouver Pacific Swim Club, as they surged into the lead in overall team scoring, as well as having one of their relay teams break the only SwimBC record so far at the meet.

VPSC overtook UVPCS for first place in team scoring so far, having amassed 953 points to UVPCS's 908.  With the meet only half-completed, though, it's still up for grabs, as CHENA, LAOSC, and PSW are all within 100 points of the top spot.

VPSC's 12&U girls 4x200 Free Relay team of Rebecca Hallett, Emma Wong, Alexandra Turvey, and Sarah Fedder set a new provincial record in a time of 9:34.60, narrowly breaking the previous record of 9:34.84.

Notice to parents:  
SwimBC's Provincial Coach, Vince Mikuska, and Regional Coach, Mike Flegel, will be delivering a presentation on long-term athlete progression and development on Sunday morning at 7:45am in the front lobby of the UBC Aquatic Centre.
