Nauticals posted great results at Edmonton meet

Four Sylvan Lake Nauticals swimmers who qualified for and attended the 2013 Alberta Speedo Age Group and Senior Championship swim meet

Four Sylvan Lake Nauticals swimmers who qualified for and attended the 2013 Alberta Speedo Age Group and Senior Championship swim meet in Edmonton enjoyed a very exciting weekend, July 4-7.

Elizabeth Moore (12) made it into all seven finals. She earned the gold medal for 50m breaststroke, taking off 0.55 seconds from her personal best time, giving her a 15-year-old national qualifying time and a 15-and-under western qualifying time. Elizabeth also earned a gold medal in 200m breaststroke taking 7.3 seconds off her previous best time. In 100m breaststroke, 200m IM (individual medley) and 400m IM, Elizabeth took silver medals. She placed fourth in 50m and 200m backstroke events. For the entire weekend she swam seven personal best times, broke seven club records and was awarded a top-ten swimmer recognition award from Swim Alberta.

Amber Carson (14) swam in seven events and made it into three finals. Amber got three personal best times taking 6.23 seconds off in the 200m freestyle race. She broke three club records, which she previously held, placed fourth in 200m butterfly and seventh in 100m butterfly. Emily Girard (10) joined the team for her first experience at provincials and did very well. She swam in seven events and qualified for two finals. Emily placed sixth in 200m backstroke dropping 6.01 seconds off her previous best time and getting another ‘A’ time. She took off an amazing 9.16 seconds in 400m freestyle.

Chase Murdoch (17), our only senior swimmer at the meet, posted fantastic results. Chase made finals in all seven of his events and earned himself seven personal best times. His best swim was the 200m IM in which he took off more than five seconds from his previous best time. Chase earned four more senior ‘A’ qualifying times and another western qualifying time.

For most, the swim year is over. Everyone did a fantastic job and had a great season. We would like to wish Elizabeth Moore luck as she continues to train for the coming national swim meet. She will be travelling to Montreal, Quebec to compete July 24-28 against the top swimmers from across Canada.
