Bremerton YMCA’s Meyer breaks Dana Kirk fly record

Bremerton YMCA Swim Team’s Aziza Meyer set a 8-Under 100-yard butterfly team and league record last weekend at the Age Group Invite at Curtis High School in Tacoma.

Meyer’s record was 1 minute, 28.17 seconds.

The previous record was held by Olympian Dana Kirk, a Bremerton and Stanford University graduate who swam at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece. Kirk’s record was set in 1993 in 1:31.19.

Kirk sent Meyer an autographed picture and congratulations on breaking the record.

Also, you can find results of the meet here, which included swimmers from Bainbridge Island Swim Team, Port Townsend Swim Team and Bangor Trident Swim Team.

Port Orchard Classic results here

With the Port Orchard Classic being a local meet, it wouldn’t make sense for me to focus on our locals because they’re are too many locals to count. So, with that being said here’s a link to the results. That way you can look through the results and find what you want.

Evergreen Swim Club won the team title with 631 points, followed by Olympic Aquatic Club (403.5) and Port Angeles Swim Club (345.5). Poulsbo Piranhas were 10th (29) and Bangor Trident Swim Team (3) was 11th.

Dick Hannula Classic Friday-Saturday at SK pool

The Dick Hannula Classic meet will be Friday and Saturday at the South Kitsap HS pool.

If you’re unfamiliar with Hannula, here’s a quick synopsis that might explain how great of a coach he was:

Hannula coached 32 years at Wilson High in Tacoma. During that time he won 323 meets without a loss, from 1959-1983. That include 24 straight WIAA boys high school meets; founded Tacoma Swim Club in 1955 and coached for 42 years; coached  four Team USA Olympic members; a member of the American Swim Coaches Association Hall of Fame, International Swimming Hall of Fame, Washington State Sports Hall of Fame and the Pacific Northwest Hall of Fame — just to name a few.

The meet begins at 9 a.m. Saturday for Session 1. Session 2 is at 1:15 p.m. Session 3 is Sunday at 9 a.m., Session 4 is at 1:40 p.m. and Session 5 is at 5:45 p.m.

Among the local swimmers who are listed on the psych sheet as the No. 1 qualifier in their age group are; Isaac Beers, Poulsbo Piranhas ST, 10-Under 50- and 100-meter butterfly; Adrian King, PPST, 10U 50 free, 50 and 100 breaststroke; Ethan Fox, 11-12 50 free; Kevin Houseman, Puget Sound SC, 11-12 200 breast.

I will note that Poulsbo Piranhas’ Eleanor Beers is ranked No. 1 in three events, but the 11-year-old won’t be swimming due to a broken left arm.

You can find the full psych sheet here.

Locals among top 10 in PNS rankings

With the club season underway, I thought I’d see how our local club teams are faring in terms of top times and it’s good news all around.

Seven of the eight peninsula-based teams have at least one swimmer ranked in the top 10 in the Pacific Northwest ( I’m listing the area swimmers that have achieved a top 10 time this calendar year. The rankings go through the top 25 which you can find here. My list is long-course meters. The lone exception is girls 9-year-old division. The names that are bolded below means that swimmer is No. 1 in at least one event.

Among them is Bainbridge Island SC’s Lia Campbell. Campbell is No. 1 in nine of the 12 events she swims.

Other swimmers who have multiple No. 1 top times include; Eleanor Beers of Poulsbo Piranhas ST, 50 and 100 freestyle; Brianna Hoffman, PPST, 100 free, 400 free; Ian Lipton, BISC, 50 free, 200 free, 100 free; Aaron Markow, BISC, 50 breast, 100 breast; James Sanchez, Bremerton Y ST, 50 butterfly, 100 fly; and Dylan Macabitas, Puget Sound SC, 100 back, 200 back.

At some point this summer, I’ll also put together the all-time top 10 list.

I think these lists are fun and informative. Plus, you can impress your friends with your knowledge of local swimming. Continue reading
