Host CDSC Takes Team Lead on Day 1 at 2019 Winter Age Group Champs

The first day of racing at the 2019 Winter Age Group Championships brought about a tight three-way race for the overall lead in team scoring, with the host Canadian Dolphins Swim Club (425 points) narrowly ahead of Vancouver Pacific Swim Club (403 points) and Hyack Swim Club (393 points) of New Westminster.

Rounding out the top five clubs after day 1 were Pacific Sea Wolves from South Surrey and Island Swimming Club of Victoria.
