Po­sei­don laps it up

Team of two places sec­ond at Corner Brook meet


The Po­sei­don Swim Club of Car­bon­ear man­aged just fine with only two swim­mers at the pro­vin­cial per­for­mance fall meet, held Oct. 2224 in Corner Brook.

Al­li­son Somers and Ben­jamin His­cock per­formed well enough to place sec­ond at the meet, trail­ing only the Stephenville Aqua Aces. Team stand­ings were de­ter­mined based on the av­er­age points to­tal per swim­mer on each team. A to­tal of 65 swim­mers at­tended the three­day meet.

Somers placed third in the girls 13-14 age cat­e­gory. She won the 100-me­tre fly event, post­ing a time of 1:14.30. She also had five sec­ond­place fin­ishes at the meet, along with a fourth-and fifth-place show­ing.

To be el­i­gi­ble to com­pete at the meet, Somers needed East Coast cham­pi­onship qual­i­fy­ing times, as was the case for all swim­mers un­der the age of 15.

His­cock’s best per­for­mance in the boys 15-18 age cat­e­gory was a third-place fin­ish in the 100-me­tre breast­stroke, where he recorded a time of 1:17.51.

The team’s next meet will be the fall clas­sic meet, hosted by the St. John’s Leg­ends on Nov. 5-7.
