UVPCS Top Vancouver Island Club at Club Nationals!

Last year at the Calgary inaugural Club Nationals UVPCS placed 12th of over 65 teams, a remarkable feat for a Club in its first year of operations. This year, after less than two years in operation, we scored 884 points and placed 7th among over 100 teams from across the country attending the meet. UVPCS was the 3rd highest scoring club in BC, after UBC Dolphins and Langley Olympians. Congratulations to all our Club Nationals competitors and coaches!!

Our top-eight finishers included:



And what a AAAs they were – here are the news, now that your correspondents have had two weekends to sleep in, after four incredibly long and exciting days at the Provincial Championships. We hosted a great meet – due to dedicated parents, coaches, friends and supporters. Thanks to everybody!

In our second year, the UVic-Pacific Coast Swimming Association moved into the top three places in the province, placing second in the points standings for men, third for women, and finishing third overall.

UVic-PCS Athlete Makes Olympic Team!

Nathan O'Brien won the Men's 200M Backstroke at the Canadian Olympic Trials on Friday. His time of 1:59.17 was the second fastest time ever swam by a Canadian swimmer and only 2/100's off the Canadian Record. More importantly, his time was well under the qualifying standard and has earned him a trip to the Athens Olympics next month.

Nathan's family has a long history with PCS Coach Ron Jacks and the Olympics. In 1976 Ron coached Nathan's mother in the 1976 Montreal Olympics were she competed in the 800M Freestyle.

Timing Clinic

There will be a timing how-to clinic on Saturday 3 July 2004 at Saanich Commonwealth Place at 8:30am. Meet at the Aquatic Classroom on the pool deck. This is a critical position at any meet, and especially so at a Provincial Championship. We will need 32 timers for each heats session and 16 for each finals session. Please attend this clinic, be a timekeeper at the meet and support swimmers from all our provincial clubs.


PCS Shines at VIR's

Vancouver Island Long Course Open Age-Group Championships featured some stellar swims, including new Club National qualifier Nicole Crawford, and new AAA qualifiers William Yolland, Andrea Vizsolyi and Samantha Ivanova. A smattering of results: Alyssa Bakken, Tyler Smith, David Vizsolyi and Jayme Weimer each finished in the top three in all their races. Alyssa took Gold in both 100m and 200m Backstroke; Tyler won Gold in the 100m Butterfly, doubling up on his 100 Fly win at Short Course VIRs from January.
