Pool C City Championships at AIS
On Thursday 9th May we had a team of 28 students participate in the Pool C City Championships at AIS. This meet was the biggest of all 3 City Championships with 12 International Schools and 250 students participating. Our students represented BIS with finesse, showing tight streamlines and fast kicks! Unfortunately, the Pool C competition did not get to finish due to rain and lightning. However, of the events we did complete, all students achieved a personal best time! A total of 42 personal best times were achieved! At the conclusion of the event, BIS were leading the Overall Points Award.
Pool B City Championships at BIS
On Friday 10th May, BIS hosted the Pool B City Championships Swim Meet. Our team consisted of 27 students, who have been working hard on executing efficient dives and tight streamlines to increase their speed. The Pool B attracted 11 International Schools and 185 competitors. This Pool is one of the most difficult events to participate in, if you swim too fast in this event, you are awarded a speeding ticket. Students who receive a speeding ticket have swum a Pool A qualifying time and receive zero points for their team.
The Pool B swim meet, resulted in our largest collection of Personal Best times. Every student achieved a personal best time, with a total of 80 personal best times achieved! Many of our students achieved personal best times with an improvement of 10 seconds or more. Twelve of our students received speeding tickets for their very fast races!
As a result, BIS were awarded Runners Up in the Pool B City Championships Swim Meet. We also congratulate Sabrina Gladchuk who placed 3rd Overall in the 9 – 11 Girls.
The SISAC City Championships were a very busy and successful week for the BIS Barracudas. Well done to all involved!
