Wavecutter Swimmers excel at Relay Meet

The Halifax Wavecutters Swim team participated in the Dalhousie Relay Meet on October 13th, 2012 held at the Dalplex Pool. The team showed a lot of promise through their swim times and it sets them up for a great season ahead.

The Dal Relay meet is an annual event where swimmers from many local teams can compete and have fun while doing so. The whole meet is sanctioned as a relay meet meaning that swim teams must enter a minimum of 4 swimmers per relay, and some relays this year had 3 swimmers in them. The relays ranged from official distance relays to more original onces such as the 3 by 50m Butterfly which is not within official guidelines.

The Wavecutters had 6 total swimmers participating, they were involved in all the relays that required 3 people to enter, so they were unofficial relays. The two age groups that participated were the "13 and under girls" which included Neta Bar, Jouliana Poulliot, and Annie Wang, while the "14 and over boys" age group included Dmitry Shulga, Devon McDonald, and Devon Slongo. All of the swimmers swam well and close to their best times, which in season is a promising sign for the future endeavors.

We wish the team further luck and success in the future competitions.
