The Castlegar Aquanauts swim team had a very successful few days in Kimberley this past weekend.

With only 21 swimmers in attendance, they came in 2nd place overall.

The Aquanauts achieved a ton of best times this weekend and medalled in many different divisions.

Both the coaches, Michaella Yang and Laura Zevenhuizen as well as the parents were so impressed with how the aquanauts swam this weekend.

“This past weekend at Kimberley was awesome! We had tons of best times and numerous meet records that were set. Everyone should be extremely proud of themselves for their awesome races!” said Yang.

The Kimberley swim meet was the last of a three week swim meet marathon and despite being exhausted the swimmers still pulled out some great races and best times.

The next swim meet that the Aquanauts have to look forward to is the Regional swim meet in Castlegar. This meet is very important because it will be many of the swimmers final meet of the season.

“The results from Kimberley after three swim meets in a row are just amazing. If that’s what our swimmers can do when their tired, I cannot wait to see how everyone does when they are rested up for Regionals. It will be a very exciting swim meet,” said Zevenhuizen.

“The Regional swim meet is this weekend and will be swum at our home pool. The Aquanauts are looking forward to seeing some very fast races and to have many swimmers qualify for the Provincial swim meet in August.”
