After our first meet of the short course season, we are showing the hard work by so many is paying off. Congratulations to Grayson Keene for breaking the team record in the 50 back and moving up the top 5 lists in the others. He also got an 'A' time in the back and was joined by Sydney Alamein who had two 'A' times. Five others got 'B' times as well. Several kids swam their first meets and they did a great job. Much to look forward to this season.

In the last meet of the season, the Blue Dolphins Swim Team swam at the Seahorse Invite in Newport. The highlight was the bonfire on the beach on Saturday night, but we had some great swims. The meet began with Brooke Colachico dropping 43 seconds in the 500 followed by Madison Hanson dropping 35 and Kaitlyn Landis dropping 14 in hers. Madison had best times in every event and dropped over 95 seconds total. It was a great time for everyone that competed. Great way to end the season and a lot of fun!

Gentry Hagedorn, Taylor Hagedorn, Lonny Stork, Kaitlyn Landis and Sydney Alamein swam at Mt. Hood Community College at the 2019 OSI Arena 11 & Over Long Course State Championships. The girls swam nearly 70% best times and several new team records. We started with a new team record in the Open 800 Free Relay (Sydney, Kaitlyn, Lonny and Taylor) and finished with a flourish in the 1500 free where Sydney, Taylor and Kaitlyn dropped nearly a minute and more finishing with great placings (14 year olds Sydney - 8th, Taylor - 9th and 13-year-old Kaitlyn - 10th). Records were (Sydney - 13-14 and Open 200 IM, Taylor - 13-14 and open 100 fly and 400 IM, Gentry - 50 fly). It was a great weekend that other Blue Dolphins will make a goal and do the work to try and get here.

The Blue Dolphins Swim Team took part of the 2019 Chehalem Swim Team Summer Invitational recently. According to Coach Maxwell, "We swam very well throughout the meet.

The 2019 BDST Jellybean Invitational was held for the first time and the Blue Dolphins swam very well for early in the season and early training. Over 60% best times surprised the coaching staff who were delighted with the efforts and results. New events and new swimmers highlighted by Olivia setting a new 15-18 women's 100 breast stroke team record and she was joined by Sydney Alamein who set three team records with swim in the 100 fly (13-14 women) and 100 breast (13-14 women and open women). Emmy Pfankuch dropped thirty seconds in her 200 IM at the end of the meet.

Special thanks to Lisa Hagedorn for putting together this fun and successful meet. Thanks to all the volunteers and a special thanks to our officials (Matt Beasley - meet ref, Hugh Genualdi, Cali Beasley and Shylow Landis) since without them the meet doesn't go on. Now we are officially started with our long course season!!!

Northwest Age Group Regionals

Sydney Alamein swam up in Federal Way at the Northwest Age Group Regional meet. This brings the best age group swimmers from as far away as Hawaii and Alaska, Montana, Oregon, Idaho and Washington. She had best times in the 500 free and 200 fly. She set team records in the 200 fly in both the 13-14 and open categories. Her mile on the last day was her second fastest of her season. It was a great meet and we hope that others will set this as another step goal for next year.
