People love to root for the underdog. This summer maybe they will coin a new term: the underdolphin! The last two weeks both the Westmount Examiner and Westmount Independent have been rooting for us, following our progress, reporting on our activities.
Today we are on the front page of the Westmount Examiner, cheering and making noise!
We have a lot to make noise about: we’ve been proving ourselves to be a strong team even without a pool. No pool, no problem, indeed!
Last week we finished our meet with Beaurepaire with a loss: 537 to 519. Then we followed it up the next evening with a win at Beaconsfield Heights 549 to 495!!
This week we were again faced with lightning and found ourselves at Viking both Wednesday and Thursday evening to complete our meet. It was close all Wednesday evening but on Thursday, Viking edged us out 536 to 524. We can be proud that we fought to the end! We can especially be proud of a special moment of true ALPS spirit when both Viking and
Westmount joined in a cheering session and demanded the officials to show their
spirit in a cheering contest. The Westmount and Viking swimmers and coaches beat the officials from both pools hands down!
Thanks to all of you who drove out to each of these 5 events (yet only 3 meets!) to ensure your swimmer’s participation and to help out as officials.
Have a look at the Competitions section at our website: you will find results for each of the
meets and you can look at our team records to see how some of our fastest Dolphins are doing! Congratulations to all!
Best wishes to our Summer Swimmers who are swimming today at Beaurepaire! Look forward to meeting our next opponents at Valois Pool in Pointe Claire!
Go Dolphins Go!
