On July 18 we hosted our friends from Lakeshore Pool (SHORE) in Pointe-Claire. Our Dolphins were again victorious: Westmount 554 to BEAU 498. Then on July 25 we hosted Valois Pool (VAL) also from Pointe-Claire. That competition started a bit late due to thunder and was a rainy night for swimming. In the end we suffered a loss: Westmount 514 to VAL 534, but the rain did not dampen the spirits of our Dolphins. The following records were surpassed in the last two weeks: on July 18 a new first place record for Ronnie Hartal in 11-12 boys’ freestyle and a new third place record for Chloe Natasha Baui in 13-14 girls’ butterfly. Then on July 25 Gabrielle Béasse topped the record board for 11-12 girls’ freestyle. Have a look at our RECORD BOARD.
We are excited to visit Montreal West this week and are gearing up for the last regular season meet next Wednesday, August 8 against our rival Windermere, in Beaconsfield.
SIGN UP SWIMMERS AND OFFICIALS TO THE LAST MEET OF THE SEASON
We will soon be announcing the roster for the ALPS Section A Finals that are taking place on Saturday August 11 at Montreal West Pool. The league requires us to select the two fastest swimmers in each individual event and the four fastest freestyle swimmers in each age category to make up the relays. The competitions promises a morning of fast swimming and we invite all Dolphins to come watch and cheer on the team. The competition will get underway at 9am and runs all morning. Relays take place immediately after lunch.
On Sunday July 22 we welcomed Beacon Hill Pool from Beaconsfield (BHILL). Again, our competitors had a bigger group of divers so we suffered another loss. Then on Sunday July 29 we played host to Beaurepaire (BEAU) who forfeited the meet (they did not show up) so our divers won the meet and demonstrated their agility with a fun competition instead.
Our dive team will meet the Piscine Village Pointe-Claire (PVPC) on August 5.
SIGN UP DIVERS AND VOLUNTEERS HERE
The synchro teams have been practicing with their music and the routines are really coming together. The first competition, the Summer Synchro Swimmers meet, will be taking place on Thursday August 9. Some of their special swimsuits have already arrived and they look fabulous!
Our 12 and under water polo players had a great tournament on Saturday July 28 in Beaconsfield. Beacon Hill were the hosts. It was a fun day. The first game was tied and went into penalty shots. We unfortunately lost that match after 5 penalty shots. Our second match gave us a 6-4 win! We moved to the next round where were finally eliminated. All in all it was a great tournament and fun for all!
