The Seajays Swim Club is elated to announce its achievements at the 18th Rodney Heights Aquatic Center Invitational which took place recently at the Rodney Heights Aquatic Centre.

With approximately 300 swimmers competing, ‘Seajays’ walked away with a national record being broken by Jayhan Odlum-Smith in the 1500-metres freestyle in a time of 17 minutes and 36.25 seconds. The previous record was last broken in 2005.

Six of the nine national age group records were broken by Seajays Club swimmers, namely Jayhan Odlum-Smith breaking the 1500-metres freestyle, 400-metres freestyle, and 50-metres backstroke.

Terrel Monplaisir broke the 200-metres backstroke and 200-metres individual medley records and Devin Boodha the 200-metres breaststroke.

The club recognizes superb performances from Nial Bergasse, Mya Peters, Sunshine Mauricette, Tristan Dorville, Angelina Habib, D’Andre Blanchard, James and Jonas Sylvester, Noah Dorville, Reggie Anselm and Carvarri Taylor as major contributors to its 2nd place overall placement.

Although entering with less swimmers as first place winners, Coaches Norm Barnfield and Brian Charles complimented their swimmers on a job well done.

The club looks forward to hosting its very own Karen Beaubrun Meet on July 8 and 9.
