Five of our Bluefish swimmers have just returned from competing at the 2014 Eastern Ontario Short Course Regional Championships. Held this year in Belleville, Jan 30 – Feb 1, 2015.
Qualifying this year were…. Mason Kenny, Rylee Moffatt, Cameron Shepherd, Alex Wroe and Zach Wroe.
The meet this year hosted 21 teams from across Eastern Ontario, with over 500 of the regions fastest swimmers in attendance.
Our swimmers really stepped up their game this past weekend with a combined 26 personal best times (PBs) out of 30 events.
Mason Kenny – 4 of 4 PB’s
Rylee Moffatt – 4 of 6 PB’s
Cameron Shepherd – 9 of 11 PB’s (swam 4 finals)
Alex Wroe – 6 of 6 PB’s
Zach Wroe – 3 of 3 PB’s
The 13 years and older swimmers, swam preliminaries with the fastest top 16 moving on to swim the Finals in an evening session. Cameron Shepherd (13) qualified for 4 finals and finished 6th, 9th, 12th and 13th in his events.
In the boys 11&12 age group, Alex Wroe (11) medalled in 2 events placing 2nd and 3rd. He also finished top 8, with a 5th, two 6ths and a 7th place finish.
For the Teams Points Race the Arnprior Bluefish Swim Club Finished in second place just behind the Ottawa Y Olympians (OYO) in the small team category. An amazing feat considering we only had 5 swimmers in attendance.
Congratulations to our Regionals Team and we are looking forward to taking a much larger one to Regionals in 2016.
