posted Apr 18, 2019, 4:58 PM by BDST Administrator

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.

This past weekend, the Blue Dolphins Swim Team closed out the short course season by competing at the Oregon Swimming 11-14 State Championships at the Osborn Aquatic Center in Corvallis.

Sydney, Taylor, Lonny and Gentry swam at the state champs. Cali so graciously posted their results but I will add that Sydney swam new records in the 1650 free, 200 fly and 100 back in the 13-14 age group. The 200 fly was also a new open record. The girls swam great all weekend with a team score second only to 2014 in points.

TEAM Eugene Winter Open

The team swam very well down in Eugene this past weekend. David Beasley set a new team record in the 13-14 400 IM. Many best times and, more importantly, while not rest many more were just off best times. I think that makes the end of the season look great.

Senior Open

Sydney Alamein and Taylor Hagedorn swam this past weekend in the Senior Open in Corvallis. Taylor broke her own record in the 400 IM only to have Sydney break it again in the next heat. Sydney then followed with an even faster time in the finals. She also had best times in the 500 free, 1000 free and 200 fly. She set new records in the 200 fly and had a chance to swim it again in the finals. What a great weekend for these two young ladies who have worked so hard.
