Aquajets make a splash

It was a record setting day for the North Whidbey Aquatic Club Aquajet swimmers, who set lifetime bests in over 75-percent of their races and took third out of eight teams, in a meet at Kamiak High School last weekend.

Leading the way for NWAC was 11-year-old Greg Turner, who raced to four first places and notched Pacific Northwest Swimming Championship qualifying times in the boys 11-12 division 200-yard individual medley (2:46.33) and the 200-yard breaststroke (3:09.35).

Also scoring well for the Aquajets was Jason Hunter and Yale Rosen. Hunter, 17 and competing in the boys 15-and-over division, established seven PNS Champs qualifying times, churning to four first-place finishes in the process. Rosen, 10, also sliced his way to four firsts including a 33-second improvement in the boys 10-and-under 500-yard freestyle to finish in 6:51.67.

NWAC competes next at Marysville December 6-7 and then in Federal Way at the PNS Championships Dec. 12-14.

NWAC is a North Whidbey Parks and Recreation Department program for competitive swimmers ages six through college. Anyone who wishes to join the swim team can tryout at the city pool any Monday, Wednesday, or Friday at 4:45 p.m.

The first two weeks are free. For more information, please call the pool (765-7665) to speak with Head Coach Neil Romney.
