Wednesday night we hosted our first meet of the season, welcoming Hudson Yacht Club. They were a small team but they raced hard and pushed our swimmers to work hard for the win: 569 points for Westmount and 483 points for HYC.
We are so proud of all of our Dolphins. We are particularly proud of three Dolphins who achieved their mark on the All-Time Records Board:
Jorge Luis Khouri 15 and over Boys' Freestyle 25.47 (New 3rd Place record)
Andrew Xie 11-12 Boys' Butterfly 33.51 (New 3rd Place record)
Zoe Immer 13-14 Girls' Butterfly 32.47 (New 3rd Place record)
Way to swim fast!
A huge thank you to all of you who baked and volunteered: you helped make the meet a success and we have now raised nearly the entire amount needed to cover the cost of ribbons for the season! Speaking of ribbons, if your swimmer missed picking theirs up at the meet, do not worry, Leah Trineer, Head Coach Hannah's mom, will be keeping them safe and will distribute them whenever she can make it to the pool. Sign up is already in progress on our website for the next competition at Beaurepaire Pool in Beaconsfield. Deadline for sign up is Monday at midnight.
Our diving team will attend their first competition of the season on Sunday July 2 at Windermere Pool in Beaconsfield. The deadline to sign up is midnight Thursday June 29 but if you have missed signing up, please check with the diving coaches at Friday morning practice to see if they can add you. Please try to observe the deadlines as they ensure that the paperwork for competitions can be submitted to the league in time. Good luck to all the divers!
Here is a special message from City Councillor Rosalind Davis about Westmount’s Canada Day celebration:
This year Westmount is going all out to celebrate Canada's 150th, and we want you to come and join the party!
It takes place in Westmount Park, in front of Westmount Park School, Saturday July 1st, as of 6:30 pm till 11pm!
There will be a DJ to get us moving, a selection of food trucks and a cash bar, fun times for all!
And the best part is the spectacular interactive light show that will increase in intensity with the movement of people around it!
Come share the experience as we celebrate Canada's 150th right here in our own neighbourhood!
You will want to be part of this evening to remember!
We hope many Dolphins families who are in town this weekend will be participating in this special event.
Looking forward to another great week of Dolphins!
Go Dolphins Go!
