Sylvan Lake Nauticals Swim Club started their long course swim season at the Olympian Swim Club’s Double Double Meet Mar. 9-10.

The long course season consists of the swimmers competing in a 50m pool. At this meet the top 10 swimmers that competed in 100m events swam double that (200m) in the finals, making for a pretty tiring meet.

Competing were Zoe DeJonge (9), Eden Price (9), Avery Burgar (10), Emily Girard (10), Kora-Lynn Juneau (10), Elizabeth Moore (11), Eliana Mulholand (11), Ann Duffy (14), Chase Murdoch (16). It was a great meet for all the swimmers.

Zoe DeJonge competed in six races and earned a spot in the ‘Best of the Rest’ final in the 100m butterfly in which she had to swim a 200m butterfly race, placing third in her heat. Zoe also got seven personal best times and a meet qualifying time in the 400m freestyle.

Eden Price also was on top of her game, swimming in four races and getting a personal best time in each of them.

Avery Burgar competed in six races Saturday and earned six personal best times — she had a really good day.

Emily Girard also competed in six races Saturday and had personal best time swims in each of them for a very successful weekend.

Kora-Lynn Juneau swam in five races Saturday and then returned to join the team Sunday to swim the 400m freestyle race. She earned six personal bests as well.

Elizabeth Moore swam in seven races and in her three 100m races she made finals. She placed first in the 200m breaststroke, second in the 200m butterfly and third in the 200m freestyle. Elizabeth also set ten club records and ten personal best times, during an amazing meet.

Eliana Mulholand had a successful weekend, competing in five races and making it into ‘the Best of the Rest’ finals in two races. In the 200m breaststroke final she came in first in her heat. Eliana also got a meet qualifying time during her 400m freestyle.

Ann Duffy swam in six races and made in into the 200m backstroke final on Sunday. Shortly after that race Ann had to hit the water again for the 400m freestyle in which she took off almost 11 seconds and achieved a meet qualifying time. Ann made five personal best swims.

Chase Murdoch was our only male swimmer and he swam nine times over the weekend, three of those races in the finals. Chase placed second in 200m freestyle final and third in 200m butterfly final. He also got eight personal best times, broke three club records and made two club records.

Way to go team, keep up the good work in the rest of the long course season.
