AGI - Day 3 and something to think about

We had a decent day today. Started out very well with Karl Massey bettering his 200BK time from last weekend and making the A final... pretty short morning.

The afternoon started out well. Nolan Haas and Quinn Jagard both took off a few hundredths of a second. Mitchell Krafczek also had a best time. Kyle Haas swim to a solid first placing for finals at night. He also gained a second place start in finals for 200BK (also a best time of 2:16.28).

Bjoern-Ole Scrader had a remarkable 200BK, bettering his short course time (in a long course pool) by about 3 seconds and an 8th place finish. Not bad for only being in that age group for 34days. He also had a best time in 100Fly. That was followed shortly by an amazing 50BR by Emma Fender.

Tessa and Keri-Lyn both had fantastic 400IMs!! The girls 11-12 relay was pretty solid. It was a good indication of what to expect at provincials and gave us some cues on what to work on until then. Veronica Fong had an excellent lead leg on the relay and only missed the provincial cut in 100FR by .44seconds.

At finals, Kyle won 50FR with a time of 25.93, came second in 200BK slightly slower than this morning and came 10th in 100FLY in a time of 1:04. Karl added about half a second in his 200BK but split it better than this morning. Still a great race. He finished 7th overall.

I am resaonably happy with the weekend this far and I am looking forward to the final day tomorrow (I've been at the Etobicoke pool for a total of 31 hours so far since Thursday and likely have another 13 hours tomorrow).
