Tight Three-Team Race for Team Title

Three days down and three teams have separated themselves from the pack as contenders for the overall team-scoring title at the 2013 SwimBC Long Course AAA Championships at UBC.  

The host Vancouver Pacific Swim Club maintained its lead ahead of the rest of the field with 1365 points, but Pacific Sea Wolves and Hyack Swim Club made a move into contention with 1330 and 1320 points, respectively.

First-day leaders, UVPCS, dropped out of the top five, and are now in sixth place, despite one of the more impressive swims of the night.  Molly Gowans, 13, won the 13yr. girls 100 Free in a time that also would've won the 14yr. and 15yr. event and placed second in the Senior Girls.

Emily Overholt, WVOSC, put up the top FINA-point scoring swim of the meet so far as well, posting a 2:17.88 in the 15yr. girls 200IM - a time that puts her just over a second away from the SwimBC Provincial Record for 15-17yr. girls.

New meet records on Saturday evening came from the following:


  • Molly Gowans (UVPCS) - 13yr. girls 100 Free
  • Kevin Viliunas (CDSC) - 15yr. boys 100 Free
  • Heather Lam (VPSC) - 15yr. girls 100 Free
  • Emily Overholt (WVOSC) - 15yr. girls 200 IM
  • Laurent Crisp (UVPCS) - 13yr. girls 200 Back
  • Markus Thormeyer (WDSC) - 15yr. boys 200 Back
