The local swimmers took home top spot in their home meet on July 18-19.

In a meet the weekend prior in Colville the Aquanauts finished an impressive second place.

Head coaches Michaella Yang and Laura Zevenhuizen were left speechless by the end of the meet in Castlegar.

“This weekend was a huge success. Even after the hardest week of training, the majority of our swimmers were able to achieve personal best times,” said Yank. “All of the swimmers were able to maintain their focus and dig deep to compete to their maximum ability even when they were exhausted.”

“It was so awesome to see everyone’s hard work from the last few weeks really pay off this weekend! Michaella and I are so impressed with all of our swimmers and are very excited about our results and the home meet this weekend,” added Zevenhuizen.
