On the weekend Of January 20-22, members of Coach Ken's groups (AD2/AG3) travelled down the 401 to compete at possibly the top facility in Canada – the TPASC- the legacy pool to the Pan Am Games. 13&older swimmers were required to test themselves in the long course format, while 12&under athletes remained in the 25m short course format. Haley Thomas (11/AG3) topped the medal getters, grabbing hardware and best times in all six of her events. Jaelyn Hall (13/AG3) also had a tremendous competition throughout, swimming to 100% best times and in all cases swimming faster in the long course pool than her previous short course times. A long list (see below) of other swimmers swam to 100% bests, despite staying in the training mode toward the upcoming Championship meets. Kaitlyn Marton added a new Festivals time in the 100im, while Jannah Saad also punched her Festivals ticket (100Fr/50Fr/100Bk); Grace Payne competing in her last meet as a 12 yr old, added the 800Fr to her 13yr old Festivals qualifying events.
