UVPCS Takes Second Consecutive AAA Champs

Following up on their home-town win last summer, UVic-Pacific Coast Swimming won the 2015 SwimBC Short Course Age Group Championships, held March 5-7, at the Surrey Sports and Leisure Centre.

After the first day of the meet, UVPCS was just marginally ahead of a surprising Kisu Swim Club out of Penticton, holding a lead of under 40 points.  The second day saw UVPCS pull a little more ahead - just over 100 - but still within striking distance.

The final day, though, saw UVPCS pull ahead decisively, to win with 2050 points, while Kisu (1563.5) fought off a tough challenge from Richmond Rapids (1525.5) and Langley Olympians (1505) to take second-place honours, by far the best finish in that club's history.

Rounding out the Top10 were the following clubs:

  • VPSC (1418)
  • Hyack (1333.5)
  • CDSC (1148.5)
  • PSW (933)
  • ISC (917.5)
  • CRKW (746)

Our sincere thanks to Surrey Knights Swim Club as meet host, as well as all of the volunteers from clubs across the province who worked so hard and so well to make the meet a memorable one for the swimmers.
