The Three Hills Neons Swim Club attended their first competitive meet of the season at Foothills Pool in Calgary on October 16, 2010. This was a "best times" meet where swimmers were rewarded for besting their previous records.
With five swimmers swimming four races each, the team brought home seventeen best time ribbons. They also had good placements among the age group categories.
This was Kristian Freund's (10) first time at a competitive meet. He swam the 50M Freestyle with expertise that landed him a 2nd place finish, and recorded a time only 2.6 seconds short of a Provincial qualifying "B" time. He also finished 1st in the 100M Freestyle, 3rd in the 100M IM, and 13th in the 50M Backstroke. Congratulations, Kristian!
Sidney Platt (10), had an excellent meet, coming in 1st in the 50M Butterfly, 1st in the 50M Freestyle, 1st in the 50M Backstroke, and 1st in the 100M IM Sidney's IM and Freestyle times were above the Provincial qualifying "B" time for 10 year olds, and his Backstroke was an 11 year old "B" time! Great job, Sidney!
Aislinn Morton (8) is already a veteran swimmer. She competed against swimmers up to two years older than her and came in 2nd in the 50M Butterfly, 3rd in the 100M Freestyle, and 25th in the 50M Freestyle. Wow, Aislinn, what an amazing swim!
