PCS Dominates at Pacific Cup

The full force of University of Victoria and Pacific Coast Swimming Association (UV-PCSA) was felt over the weekend at the Pacific Cup meet at Saanich Commonwealth Pool. UV-PCSA swimmers at all levels had an excellent meet resulting in PCS winning the overall team title by nearly 900 points.  An improvement of nearly 200 points from last years meet.

This was the first meet of the season where all levels of UV-PCSA athletes competed together at the same competition, but will definitely not be the last. UV-PCSA finished with 2,250 points to win the meet. Every member of the team who competed on the weekend contributed to the overall success of the team. PCS won the men's title finishing with 1,062 overall while the second place team finished with 598. The women improved from their 3rd place finish last year, to also win the women's title with 791 points, 397points ahead of their nearest rival.

While UV-PCSA's position as the points leader was not threatened during the meet, the race for second and third place was not so lucky. Going into Sundays finals, Tualatin Hills Swim Club of Portland, Oregon, was comfortably in second place but had to scratch from all events to make the return trip home.  Even without swimming a final on Sunday they still managed to hang on for third place.

With more meets in the next few weeks for all UV-PCSA swimmers it was a great showing at the first invitational meet of the year and everyone is excited for the next time a UV-PCSA swimmer takes to the blocks.
