Fast Autumn in the Pool
CGC Swim Academy and Masters Swim Team Highlights
November 19, 2018
This fall has been a fast one for the CGC Swim Academy, as many personal bests were set at Age Group Development and Nova Tech Swim Meets.
CGCSA swimmers — Cora Johnson, Senali Jayawarna, Jessica Liu, Matea Bagnell, Zoe Boudreau, Norah Devenney and Isabelle McKenna — competed in the Age Group Development Meet Fall Series #1 at Dalplex on October 13th and 14th, and achieved multiple best times. All but Senali, who is new to the Year Round Swim Team, are CGCSA Summer Swim Team members and this was their first age group meet of the year. Click here to see the team’s results.
On November 3rd, the first Nova Tech Meet of the year took place at Centennial Pool. Nova Tech Swim Meets are for swimmers new to competition up to age 13 and until they make the time standards to attend age group swim meets. With 31 CGCSA swimmers participating, it made them the second largest team in attendance. Each and every swimmer did incredibly well with 10 swimmers completing Nova Tech Levels. Some of the exciting results include:
- Isabella Beck, AJ Botross, Sofia Mengual-Clare and Jack Quinton all completed Participation
- Adrian Jiang, Reyha Khanna, Daniel Li and Enoch Zhang all completed Level 1
- Taylor Hollett and Claire Richards both completed Level 2
Congratulations to all CGCSA swimmers!
Gawlik Continues to Make Waves in the Record Books
Ewa Gawlik isn’t showing signs of slowing down anytime soon. As a dedicated and passionate masters swimmer, Ewa continues to set records in the 70-75 age group. At the most Halifax Chronos Masters Swim Meet at Centennial Pool on October 27th, Ewa set new records and took gold in the 100 Breaststroke, 50 Breaststroke, 50 Backstroke, and 50 Butterfly. Though she competes in all strokes, she has a particular affinity for Butterfly — arguably one of the hardest and most exhausting strokes to perform.
Also competing at the meet for CGC, were Laura Ankcorn and June Jorgensen. Laura took home the gold in the 100m Freestyle and silver in the 50m Butterfly in the 35-40 age group, while June raced her way to a gold, silver and bronze in the 100m Freestyle, 50m Backstroke and 50m Freestyle respectively in the 45-49 age group.
Full results are available on the Swim Nova Scotia website.
Way to go Ewa, Laura and June!
