Seventeen Riptides attended the UCSC T-Rex long course meet in Calgary this weekend. It was a massive success for the club with close to 100% personal bests, three club records broken and two new qualifiers for the Alberta Age Group Provincial Championships!
Avi and Emiko sprinted to 1st and 2nd in the 10&U 50 free and qualified for the championships by getting their first A times. Avi broke three club records in the 200 free, 100 fly and 800 free and added two 3rd place finishes. Avery led the 11-12 girls with a 2nd in the 800 free.
Neo crushed the competition with five 1st place finishes while adding 4 new A times. Alex topped the podium in the 50 free and came within a second of qualifying for provincials. Nick raced to three 2nd place and one 3rd, while Aidan and Sean grabbed 2nd in the 100 back and 100 free respectively.
Next up is the Alberta Age Group Trials, where 8 swimmers will represent the Riptides and have one last chance to qualify for provincials in July.
