The Tyee Aquatic Club finished off 2017 strong, as multiple swimmers beat their personal records at the Christmas Cracker swim meet in early December.
“This meet was truly exceptional for many of our swimmers both from the Sooke program as well as the Crystal Pool program,” said coach Marissa Schweitzer.
A swimmer to highlight from the event is Tyrell Wydenes, who broke his anticipated time by almost 30 seconds.
Other swimmers to highlight are Emma Beatty, Laura van den Berk, Noah Coad, Raleigh McKeown, Matthew Mitchell, Daniel Prissick, Clarke Hopkins, Nicholas Ralph, and Nate Hopkins, who all beat their anticipated times.
“We are looking forward to the Vancouver Island Regional meet which is coming up on Jan. 25-28. The swimmers are training hard and are ready to race their best,” said Schweitzer. “The Sooke program is also happy to welcome some new faces to the team this new year, and they are hoping for even more members.”
