Stingrays drop virtual meet to Brookside

The Philadelphia Sports Club (PSC) Highpoint Stingrays kicked off their 2020 virtual swim competitions by falling short to Brookside by the score of 278 to 207.
This year, the two swim programs competed virtually. The swimmers of each program met at their home pool in small groups for a time trial event. All times were then submitted to the Lower Bucks Swim League (LBSL) to have the results merged together for meet results. In the end, there were many close virtual races that were decided by tenths of a second.
During the meet, there were several personal best swim and record-breaking performances, one by Stingrays swimmer Jimin Chung in the 12 U 50 fly (31.27).
“We are very excited to be swimming at PSC Highpoint this summer,” said Stingrays head coach Sean Kelly. “We may have different swim levels in our program, and we have had a great three weeks together of learning and having fun. It is amazing the improvement we are seeing from the swimmers each day.
“The swimmers are finding their strokes and rhythm. The virtual competitions are added bonus and a lot of fun for the children and their families. We are excited for virtual dual and invitational meet challenges that await us in this unique 2020 summer season.”
