From page A9 | December 27, 2013 |

Seven members of the Aquasol Swim Team’s senior group traveled recently to Federal Way, Washington to compete in a three-day trials and finals championship meet. There were 1,007 swimmers competing in the meet with teams from college and USA Swimming programs.

The opportunity to compete at this meet was a tremendous learning experience for all the athletes. It allowed the swimmers to race against college swimmers and some of the top age group swimmers in the country.

Each of the seven Aquasol swimmers competed in at least four events over the course of the weekend. Haley Owens, a senior at El Dorado, was 4-for-4 in best times and made the finals in the 100 and 200 breaststroke events.

In the 100 breaststroke Haley finished fourth overall and in the 200 breaststroke she finished sixth overall. Haley’s time in the 200 breaststroke (2:20.22) qualified her for the Scholastic All American Award.

Kaela Marcus, a junior at El Dorado, swam to six best times and also made the finals in the 100 and 200 breaststroke. In the 100 breaststroke, Kaela finished fifth overall and in the 200 breaststroke she finished fourth overall.

Marcus’ times also qualified her for the Scholastic All American Award.

Gary Woo, a freshman at Ponderosa, competed in four events and went best times in all four. At the same time, Woo lowered his three team records for the 13-14 year old boys in the 50 freestyle, 100 backstroke and 200 backstroke. He also broke the team record in the 100 freestyle for the 13-14 boys.

Molly Covington, a sophomore at El Dorado, swam to three best times with a highlight swim being a :57.70 in the 100 freestyle.

Jason Williams, a senior at Union Mine, swam best times in the 50 and 100 freestyle and made the finals in the 100 freestyle, 100 butterfly and 200 butterfly.

The relay team of Kyle Covington, Haley Owens, Kaela Marcus and Samantha Woo entered the meet ranked 58 in the 200 medley relay. During the competition, they dropped over 10 seconds off of their seed time and moved up to the 28th.
