The Gold group attended the 3rd Coast Invitational hosted by Pearland Aquatics at the Pearland recreation Center on January 16-18th. This was a Prelims/Finals Invitational, prelims was contested in yards while finals was contested in meters. Dads Club is very proud of all of our athletes that represented us in and out of the water. We had a lot of great swims and many personal bests were achieved.

Here are a few highlights:

1st Sectionals Cut
  • Ellen Pack achieved her first Sectionals cut in the 50 free. She secured a spot in the B final by finishing 10th in prelims. Due to a couple of scratches she was moved up into the A final where she had an outstanding swim to win the entire event. 
  • Jodi Wong achieved her first Sectionals cut in the 200 breast. She came from behind at the 150 mark and edged out the competition by out-swimming her closest competitor by 2 seconds on her last 50.
