Western Championships Day 1

Uvic-Pacific Coast Swimming started off with an exciting first day at 2022 Speedo Western Championships!

First off with 100m backstroke, Bridget R. & R. Greenfield both snagged personal bests in the morning to start us off. Rupert made the 15& under A final and moves up at night! Not only that, she rips 1.2  seconds off her morning best time, making her first Junior National cut with a time of 1:06.97.

Next up in 200m breastroke, Jasper slides into 16& under A final slightly over his personal best and places 7th overall at night. Atanas T qualified for open B Final in 6th with a best time in the morning, and then moved up to 5th in the B final making another best time at night. 

Arran R. swims his second fasest ever performance in 200m open breastroke, going in first from this morning. He leads the 17&over A final, then at 150m then fades just a bit to take his first national level medal, a bronze, at 2:24. 

The UVPCS 4x100m freestyle relays saw every swimmer post a personal best. The women’s team of Rupert, Greenfield, Hier and Hallett moved up from 34th to 30th in 4:15.

The men's 4x100m relay cranked the heat this morning with Tchaouchev, Guterriez, Van Maren, and Roberston going a time of 3:44, qualifying the relay for Juniors this coming summer. 

With a fantastic first day, the team is looking forward for another 3 days of tearing it up at Kinsmen Aquatic Centre!
