Three clubs fell when the Cochrane Piranhas hosted six other swim teams in their successful home meet on July 6.

Caebri Smith broke another club record, this time the 800m in 9:44.56. His teammate Oliver Johnson was hot on his heals with a 9:46 flat.

Meadow MacPherson set the new club record in the 7-8 girls 50m Breast in a time of 52.37. It's a record that had stood since 2011.

The 17 & under girls team of Sydney Carnegie, Soleil Pugliese, Danica Fisher and Rylee Bashow took the 200 medley relay record down to 2:21.9.

Head coach Amy Swedlo heaped praise upon their swimmers for pushing their comfort zones at the meet. It's her belief that each of their swimmers compete in each event at least once to allow them to become all-round swimmers

A large group of the 14 and older swimmers took the giant leap of swimming their first 100m flys. Keeping that form for four lengths of the pool is both mentally and physically challenging.

It’s a big ask and many were more than a little apprehensive before their races but as they climbed out of the pool there were smiles, moments of pride and a realization that they really could swim this hard event.

Other deep digs at the home meet were the long distance 400m and 800m events. That's 16 and 32 lengths, respectively, in Cochrane's 25m pool. Interestingly, for the shorter 400m event, swimmers are required to count their own laps, but with the 800m they are assisted by lane counters.

Visiting clubs in the meet, sponsored by Inter Pipeline, were the Didsbury Aqua-Jets, Okotoks Stingrays, Calgary Swordfish, Calgary Tritons, High River Otters, and Canmore Coho.

The Piranhas have two more meets before regionals on Aug. 10-11. This weekend, they're visiting the Tritons and finish their regular season at the home meet of the Calgary Swordfish.
