A small contingent of divers visited Montreal West last Sunday morning and gave a good showing but with so few divers MWAC was victorious. Our next diving meet is Sunday at Beacon Hill. Hopefully a few more divers will be participating this week. Go Dolphins Divers!
Wednesday evening started off with thunder during the warm-up which delayed the meet. Thankfully no more thunder arrived to delay the meet further but during the half hour requisite wait to see what the weather would do we were treated to a torrential downpour of rain! As if on cue, when the guards announced that the meet could resume, it stopped raining and the clouds parted to sunshine. The Dolphins swam fast with two swimming new records: Kevin Huang with a new 3rd place record in 11-12 50 m breast stroke (40.06) and Andrew Xie with a new 2nd place record in 11-12 50 m backstroke (35.84). Congratulate them next time you see them! We were fast but when it came down to the relays, Valois's Dolphins were slightly faster than Westmount's. Ironically we had the identical score of our meet with Lakeshore the week before: 515 (Westmount) to 537 (Valois). We meet Viking next Wednesday on our own turf. We will need all hands on deck to make the meet a success and all available swimmers! Go Dolphins Swimmers!
Sign-up has been extended to Sunday July 23 for the Bantam water polo tournament. All members who are 12 years old or younger as of January 1, 2017 are eligible to play in the tournament. If you have not signed up yet, please do so before midnight July 23 so that Kimiko can get the entries in to ALPS on time. Go Dolphins Water Polo!
The Synchro Girls have been working hard on their routines and they are really coming together. We cannot wait to see the final results! Go Dolphins Synchro!
Friday morning we celebrated "Pajama Day" with many members arriving in PJs and with favourite toys and blankets. The Fun Factor at practice was upped with beach balls and some fun relays. Some of the younger swimmers were treated to "Bedtime Stories" while they practiced their skills. Our next theme day will be Friday July 28: Pirate Day! Get ready to walk the plank me-hearties!
Looking forward to lots of fun in Week#5!
Go Dolphins Go!
