First Two Days at SwimBC AAA SC Champs

The first two days of competition at the 2014 SwimBC Short Course AAA Age Group Championships, being held January 31 to February 3, in Kamloops, saw many phenomenal performances, including a number of meet records as well as one Canadian record.

That Canadian record came from Dalton Boone (WDSC), who broke the record in the boys Para-200Free in the S14 class with a time of 2:03.68.

A number of swimmers set new meet records, with a few breaking more than one so far.  In the 11&U Girls age category, Asia Minnes (UVPCS) set new marks in 100 Back and 200 IM, while Alexandra Turvey (VPSC) broke records in 400 and 800 Free.  Tai Long Singh (WDSC) meanwhile, set new standards in the 12-13 Boys 200 Free and 100 Back.

Also setting a new distance free record was Dylan Kormendy (GTS) in the 11&U boys 800 Free; his sister, Eden, won the 12-13 Girls 800 Free, making GTS the only team to have two wins in the distance events on Friday.

Tim Zeng (CHENA) and Emily Overholt (WVOSC) each broke new records in the 16-18 age groups, with Tim's coming in the 16-18 Boys 100 Back and Emily's in 16-18 Girls 400 IM.

Meet records in relay events came from NIPA in 12&U Girls 800F.R., RAPID in 12&U Boys 800F.R. and 14&U Boys 200F.R.

While the meet is young with just over one-third of the individual events out of the way, Richmond Rapids have established a clear lead in the overall team standings with 936 points.  Behind them, though, is quite a logjam, with six teams within roughly 100 points:
