2013 PC QUIK DISTANCE MEET in Rohnert Park

posted Nov 14, 2013, 9:38 AM by Pat Windschitl

I can comfortably say that the 2013 PC QUIK DISTANCE MEET in Rohnert Park did not run as we had planned. With power problems that went from major delays, to cancellations, to cancellations of the cancellations all on the first day this meet was shaping up to be trouble. 

For those who haven't been to Rohnert Park before it is easily the smallest pool we've ever been at. 6 lanes narrow and 3 to 4 feet deep, with a connected L shaped 10x10 yard dive tank, with a half hour of warm up in the main pool to prepare for the mile, the 1000, and more. 

And even with that, our swimmers did amazing! 

We had four 11-12 girls swim the mile (1650) and all 4 picked up at least their Junior Olympic cut time! Congratulations Mariah Hu on her first 11-12 JO TIME!! And to Malia Fernandez on her new JO's in the event! Caitlin O'Neill and Emma Magnussen did amazing in the event, holding an average split time of 1:11 and 1:12 for the 16 100's + 50 yards. Both picked up new PRT times in the event! They both also picked up PRT times in the 1000 as well! 

If we look at Pacific Swimming's current results, we now have four of our swimmers in the top 15 for the mile (with two 11 year olds)! That's more than any other team! Great job girls! 

In the other 11-12 events we also had strong swims. Emma picked up new PRT in 200 Fly at 2:29, Malia new JO's at 2:35, Both Emma and Malia picked up new Jo's in the 400 IM.

In the 10 and under events, Liahla Fernandez broke into the 6 minute range for the first time in her 500 Free with a 6:55, a 20 second time drop and a new JO time! She also dropped 30 seconds in her 200 Back, and 10 seconds in her 200 Breast, which is finally shaping up to be something great! 

Logan Edwards dropped nearly a minute and a half in his 500 free to finish 8:34.22, he also had very strong swims in his 100 backstroke, 100 butterfly and 200 free. He was the first place swimmer in all three of these events! 

7 year old Michaela Hickok survived her first 100 free, 100 breast, 100 IM, and 200 IM, picking up B times in all the 100's! Great job Michaela! 

Nathan Hu was just off his best in the 500 free, at 5:15.99, with Riley Gilmore right at his average time in 200 free at 2:05. In the mile he finished 4th with a 21:17.
