The swim team came in first overall at the event, held at the Castlegar & District Recreation & Aquatic Centre on Saturday and Sunday.

Co-head coaches Michaella Yang and Laura Zevenhuizen are really proud of their team and how far they’ve come this season.

I’m really happy and excited for our swimmers,” said Yang. “They’ve all worked really hard for this moment and Laura and I couldn’t be more proud of each and every one of them.”

The coaches are also very excited to see their swimmers go to provincials.

The swimmers who qualified at regionals, and will attend (not all swimmers are able to go) the provincial championships in Victoria August 20-23 are Claire Cartwright, Avery Cooke, Cayden Cooke, Emma Lawczynski, Ethan Lawczynski, Ethan Marshall, and James Marshall.
