2014 REGION A REGIONALS

Going into this season one of my goals was I wanted the team performing at their best at regionals. Whether that was improving their stroke efficiency, setting new personal bests or qualifying for provincials. And boy, oh boy, did we ever over exceed this goal.

What a surreal weekend. I am so proud of the team and the successful year leading up to this weekend. We took Regionals weekend to a whole other level of success. I’ve never looked at something and felt such a rush of pride and honor.

We finished the weekend with 170 personal bests, 29 swimmers qualified or were wildcarded to provincials, 57 individual swims qualified as well as 12 relay swims. We won top team points for our region with a total of 882 points. I keep rereading these stats it’s so incredible.

Picking swimmer of the meet from Regionals is incredibly hard as each swimmer had a successful weekend and us coaches are so proud of each and every single one of them!!

Female swimmer of the meet goes to Caitlyn McCullough!!! Caitlyn was focused and showed all the signs of a genuine  competitor. She raced to win, she cheered on her teammates and she spoke to her coaches before and after each race. Her efforts paid off by taking tons of time off and making the podium. Congratulations Caitlyn for swimmer of the meet. -Johanna

Male swimmer of the meet goes to Cameron Beson!!! It’s been an absolute honor coaching Cameron this year. He’s what I call a true athlete. He’s motivated, driven and has an unreal work ethic. These strong characteristics is what’s going to make Cameron successful in the sports he pursues. Cameron was very focused, positive, energetic and inspired during Regionals. He qualified in all 4 of his swims with 2 Gold and 2 Silver and set 3 new personal bests. He raced an unreal swim in his 100m breast and that race will probably stick with me for the rest of my coaching career it was so intense! He was neck and neck with Mike Smith from Slave Lake and pulled ahead in the last 25m and took off 5 whole seconds in the final. Like I said… Cameron Beson is a true athlete and he defiantly has a bright successful future ahead of him.

Memorable Swims:

Every single d*mn swim!!!! Seriously!!!! All the races were intense and exciting and so much success within the race whether it was good stroke efficiency, a new personal best or qualified in that event!!!

We are all so proud of the kids!! I feel very blessed being part of such a great club!!
