Good day

Lots of people at finals in Oakville tonight and a few great swims. Still waiting for the official results to be posted from oakville but it looks like Kelly Smith and Sam Burwell qualified for central regions and a couple of others were very close. Congrats to Britney Dortona for finishing her first (of many) 200fly.

Some great racing @ Ontario Cup today! Karl Massey was right on top of his lc pb in 200bk and finished in the top 20. He was also right at his pb in 200im.

It was great to be able to see 2 of the fastest Canadian swimmers race prior to world championship trials in Victoria. We were treated to a faceoff between Tobias Oriwal and Matt Hawes in 200bk. Hawes won in the final 40m in a time of 2:00.01 and Tobias was slightly behind in 2:01. The morning also saw Joe Bartoch win 100fly in 54.73 which is his fastest lc time ins while. Joe is a great guy and a friend to HHBF, I'm happy to see him do well.

Pretty happy about Sunday overall. Let's get back to the pool to get ready for central regions, team champs, easterns, provincials and Halton Cup. February if full of opportunities to shine!
