MSC Minis and Novice @ Guelph

Written by Alystra Riddle.

On April 9th our Minis and two novice teams completed at the novice regionals meet in Guelph.

In the morning the girls competed in figures and saw top results from Jade Guo, from the mini’s team coming second.

In the afternoon the teams all swam in the Routine competition. The minis coached by Monique Payne swam first and had a great swim coming 6th in routine and 5th in championship score. The 9-10 novice team coached by Emily Post competed next. They thrived as they swam their routine to a rain theme. They placed 12th in championship and routine. Finishing off the day was the 11-12 team coached by Alystra Riddle. They swam to a sports theme and they knocked it out of the park, placing 6th in championship and 7th in routine.
Way to go girls!!!

2016 Waterloo Invitational

Written by Alacoe MacTavish.

The Waterloo Invitational competition marks the season’s first “routine" competition for our provincial competitive MKSC swimmers.  On January 30, 2016, we had many of our provincial competitive teams swim their routines for the first time this year.  There were a total of 170 routines performed at the Wilfred Laurier University Pool.  MKSC is very proud of our swimmers that competed here!

Viviana started the day off with her 16-20 solo and she had a great 10th place finish.  Then came the 13-15 team routine event, which had 18 teams.  Our two teams both had amazing swims with Coach Candelaria’s 14 year old team finishing 4th & Coach Heather's 15 year old team placing 2nd.

Maia & Jaeden then competed their 13-15 Duet and had a great 4th place finish.  To end the day, we had Regan swim her 13-15 solo where she placed 10th.

Congratulations to all swimmers and coaches.  What a great way to kick off the competitive routine season.  It will be exciting to see you all continue to challenge yourselves in reaching your goals this season.  Keep up the hard work!
