SKSC Winterfest Results
From January 25-26th 13 senior DSSC athletes attended the Surrey Knights Winter Fest in Surrey, BC. Overall, 78% of the races swum over this past weekend resulted in best times which is extremely impressive for senior athletes. What is even more impressive is; Kayah Apanowicz, Joaquin Aranda, Jada Evans, Parmroop Parmar, Eldon Shen, and Michael Yang achieved 100% best times!
Head Coach Kurt Murphy was extremely impressed with his senior athletes this weekend as achieving a huge percentage of best times in only the middle of the season for senior athletes is a major accomplishment.
Micheal Yang (14) achieved his 15 and under BC Championship standard in the 200 back with a time of 2:31.60. Micheal is therefore now able to compete in this event in Victoria come March.
