Last weekend the team travelled to Edmonton for the JP Fiset International meet at the Kinsmen Aquatic Centre and competed against 600 swimmers from Western Canada and the Territories. It was the first meet of the year with preliminaries and finals. With the addition of relays at the end of every night, swimmers could potentially swim up to 18 races if they made finals in every event.
Riley qualified for the Provincial Championships in March with an “A” time and a bronze medal in the 100 back. He swam personal bests in 6 events and made finals in half of those races.
Neo won silver in the 200 fly and finished in the top 8 in four other events. He went sub-zero in the 100 free for the first time with a time of 59.92.
Aidan swam six personal bests, while Sean swam three and Alex swam five and cracked the top 10 in the 50 fly.
The team of Avery, Maja, Emiko and Rachel lowered their own club record in the 200 free relay by 2 seconds and finished 7th out of 16 teams.
Avery swam personal bests in every race and made finals in the 400 free. Emily also had personal bests in every race, while Maja had six, and Emiko and Rachel had five each.
Next up is the Cascade Age Group Challenge at the Talisman Centre in Calgary.
