A team from the Langley Olympians Swim Club (LOSC) has set a new provincial record.
The women’s 15 and over relay team of Madisen Jacques , Katelyn Schroder, Sienna Harder, and Leila Fack established a new provincial mark in the 200m medley relay at the Christmas Cracker Swim Meet held Dec. 3-5 in Victoria, with a time of 1:55.21.
They were part of a Langley contingent that competed against more than 400 swimmers from across B.C. and Alberta.
Zachary Haw, LOSC assistant head coach, was thrilled with the results, calling the win a “testament to the work Langley has been doing [in developing swimmers].”
Langley swim club competitors generally had a good meet with multiple podium appearances.
LOSC’s Alexandru Velicico, 13, was first in all eight of his events; the 200m freestyle 50m backstroke, 200m individual medley, 400m freestyle, 100m backstroke, 800m freestyle, 100m freestyle and 200m backstroke.
