Hannah Weinkauf placed first in the 50 free and set new club records in the 200 back, 100 back and 200 free. Other swimmers turning in club-record performances included Tavleen Grewal, Alina Blakey, siblings James and Sam Lee, and Connor Green.

“This was a fantastic start to our long course season,” Olympians coach Adrienne Goodey said. “My swimmers have been working so hard and do not have the benefit of training in a long course pool so our successes were even more exciting! I am extremely proud of their performances this weekend.”
