Harbour Swimmers Shine At BASA Short Course

March 26, 2019

The BASA Short Course Age Group Championships at the BASA pool recently wrapped up, with Harbour Swimmers posting impressive results throughout the four-day event.

A spokesperson said, “The introduction of the Gold Squad at Harbour last fall has proven successful as the swimmers saw tremendous success over the weekend with numerous personal best times and the addition of two new members in the 10 and under age group, Brooke Castree and Ava Pedro, who earned their spots after achieving the A standard in multiple events through the weekend.

“Records started falling for the Harbour team on Saturday when Brett Smith, Zebedee Wakely, Jack Harvey and Caleb Ingham broke the 17-18 National Age Group record in the 4 x 50 Medley Relay by over 7 seconds. Gold Squad Member Jack Harvey then went on to break the 15-16 Age Group record in the 200 Backstroke in a time of 2:09.88, eclipsing the previous time by almost two seconds that night.

“Sunday morning proved another strong start from the Harbour squad with Finn Moseley, Zebedee Wakely, Brett Smith and Caleb Ingham breaking the 17-18 National Age Group record in the 4 x 50 Freestyle Relay by almost 6 seconds. Jack Harvey went on to break his third record of the meet in the 15-16 Age Group in the 100 Backstroke in a time of 1:00.21.

“The Championship was the conclusion to the BASA Series that began in January. Series winners from Harbour were Giada Dudley-Pun Girls 11-12, Brandon Adkins Boys 11-12, Finn Moseley Boys 13-14 and Jack Harvey Boys 15-16. Age Group Championship Winners were Giada Dudley-Pun Girls 11-12, Myeisha Sharrieff Girls 13-14, Finn Moseley Boys 13-14 and Brett Smith Boys 15 and over. Brett Smith was also the Boys overall FINA High Point Champion.”

Harbour Head Coach Shona Palmer said, “As we enter the second half of the season in 2019, we are excited that over half of the Carifta team this year is comprised of Harbour swimmers.

“These results position Bermuda well for strong performances in Barbados in late April. Our focus now is to work with those who have qualified to reach their highest performance levels as well as those who have set their sights on other international meets as well as personal bests. Energy and commitment levels continue to be high as we continue to work together as a team to achieve exceptional results in the pool and as a club.”
