UVPCS Claims Team Title at 2014 LC AAA Champs

There might have been some question after the first day; little doubt after the second day; all but a forgone conclusion after day 3; and at the end of final long day of SwimBC's 2014 Long Course AAA Championships, University of Victoria - Pacific Coast Swimming came out on top in overall team scoring, with a substantial lead over the second place finisher.

UVPCS led the meet wire-to-wire, finishing the meet with 2729.5 points, well ahead of second place Richmond Rapids (1981.5 points), who re-claimed second place from Island Swimming (1760 points), who had held the lead after three days of the meet.  

Vancouver Pacific Swim Club took fourth place with 1531 points, while Hyack Swim Club rounded out the top five just behind with 1508.5 points.  The rest of the top ten in order were as follows:

  • Winskill Dolphins Swim Club
  • Langley/Abbotsford Olympians Swim Club
  • North Island Predators
  • Kamloops Classic Swimming
  • Canadian Dolphins Swim Club

With this being the first year that AAA Champs has been run in the current format, there were no meet records to go after, but the meet did contain one National record - from Dalton Boon (WDSC) in the 100 Free for para-swimming men in the S14 class.

The final event of the meet also bore the sole provincial record of the meet, as Chena's 16&O relay team of Tim Zeng, James Dergousoff, Nicolas Duke, and Eli Chappell - all of whom were 15-17years old - broke the 15-17yr. old boys 4x50 medley record with a time of 1:47.75, breaking the old record of 1:48.88, set way back in 1999.
