Hugh McNeill led the way, winning all five of his races to win the nine-year-old boys' aggregate trophy.

McNeill and his Langley Olympians teammates were competing at the UBC Aquatic Centre in the annual Vancouver Pacific Swim Club 10 and under invitational meet./

It was held on Dec. 1.

Bryce Dong, 10, also had a great showing, shaving 14 seconds off his 200 IM time and posting personal bests in the 50 back, 50 breast and 50 free to finish fourth overall in the 10-year-old boys' competition.

A pair of nine-year-olds, Quinn St. Pierre and Alanna Picotte, placed sixth and eighth, respectively, in their age group.

Other Langley swimmers at the meet included Sarah Buckingham, Bailey Herbert, Abiah Krause and Kristy-Anne Miller.

"It is so encouraging to see our youngsters competing well at this level and placing high up against tough competition," said Olympians coach Brian Metcalfe.

Registration for the Langley Olympians Swim Club is ongoing. They are currently offering a free month of swimming to new members. Please call 604-532-5257 or visit www.langleyolympians.com.
