Team Sungod shines at Fast Swim

North Delta group excels in competition in Richmond

For several reasons, Team Sungod’s effort at the Fast Swim Invitational can be described as very successful.

Swimmers from the North Delta club combined for 30 top-eight finishes and won 16 medals. Two swimmers combined to achieve three provincial AAA qualifying times, and six club records were broken.

“This event simulates, as close as possible, the conditions of the main meets of the short course season coming up in February and March,” said head coach Steven Hitchings. “As we head into the holiday season DSSC swimmers can feel proud about what they have accomplished this season and how far we have come in a short period of time.”

Roseanna Chung achieved her AAA standard in the girls 15-year-old 100 metre breaststroke, while Logan Warkentin qualified for provincial championships in the 12-year-old girls 50 metre freestyle and 100 metre backstroke. Warkentin finished the meet with two gold, two silver and a pair of bronze medals.

Five club records were set by Kevin McDonough in the boys 13-14 year-old 50, 100 and 200 metre backstroke, 100 metre butterfly and 200 metre individual medley. McDonough won four medals, a gold, two silver and a bronze.

Alan Lu set the sixth Sungod record in the boys 13-14 year-old 50 metre breaststroke, also winning a bronze medal.

Elena Penner took home four medals, winning a pair of gold medals and adding two bronze. Noah Landry also medaled, winning bronze.

Other swimmers qualifying for finals and placing in the top eight were Chung, Tia Dececco, Joseph Kidd, Alix Main, Daniel Su and Connor Warkentin.
