Tons of Personal Best Times At Spartan Holiday LMR

December 14, 2022

Delta Sungod Swim Club athletes worked hard this past weekend at the Chilliwack Spartans Holiday LMR meet.  Each athlete went into the meet with a list of things they wanted to accomplish at the meet.  Technical changes in strokes, new plans to race different events, and changing the way they think about racing were all major goals during the competition.

This weekend’s meet was the culmination of 14 weeks of work for DSSC’s Junior groups, Novice groups and Senior: White group.  Those changes resulted in an astounding 80% personal bests.

Congratulations to all the athletes who achieved 100% personal best times:  Colbie Deeg (11), Yujun Du (12), Lea Ghanem (11), Arwin Khangura (10), Varun Mohan (14), Riya Rai (12), Olivia Siemens (13).

Top 8 finishers for Delta were:
Mateo Pecotic (10) 5th 200 breast, 7th 100 breast/100 fly
Riya Rai (12) Bronze 200 fly, 7th 200 back
