Congratulations to all our New Junior Olympic Qualifiers, and our Qualifiers that picked up new events this weekend! 

Last weekend Ellis Aquatics swimmers made their way out to Orinda to race once more at the Pacific Swimming Last chance meet. This meet was the final shot these swimmers had to qualify for the upcoming March short-course Junior Olympic (JO) Championship Meet held in Santa Clara at the end of this month. 

The 4- to 18-year-old swimmers qualify for Junior Olympics by meeting time standards at USA Swimming events, including about a half-dozen meets the club has attended in the Bay Area since the Winter 14 and under Junior Olympics.

"It'll be an exciting experience for them," said Coach Clay Basepayne. "They'll be racing in the same pool that Ryan Lochte and others from the US Olympic team will be coming out to over the next few months. They will be swimming in the same lanes and diving off the same blocks that have been used in international meets. I know we will see some big swims". 

In the 8 and under division, 7 year old Lauryn Lucero took first in the 25 breaststroke with a 22.61, 3rd in the 25 fly with a 18.49, and 2nd in the 100 IM with a 1:34.79. 7 year old Logan Edwards finished 7th in the 100 Free with a 1:45.21. Edwards also went a best time in the 100 IM at 2:02.20.
