Killer Whales Triumph at Bennett Cup
Our local swim team continues to impress at competition; Remembrance Day weekend 13 Campbell River Killer Whale swimmers competed in Victoria at the third annual Bennett Cup meet. The meet, named for the late High Performance Centre-Victoria coach Randy Bennett, is attended by clubs from all over the province as well as Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Oregon. In this deep pool of competition, our athletes fared well over the weekend and achieved many incredible things.
CRKW had five swimmers achieve the top spot in their age category for the meet: Martina Montana, Kaya Lathangue, Kara Beauregard, Brooke Wenger, and Cianna Dunn. Additionally, six of our athletes all now rank within the top 15 in Canada for the following:
Martina Montana: 8th for 400 freestyle
Kara Beauregard: 2nd for 400 freestyle
Ali Beck: 10th for 800 freestyle
Cianna Dunn: 7th for 800 freestyle
Brooke Wenger: 12th for 200 butterfly
Summer Wenger: 13th for 200 backstroke
Kara Beauregard had another huge accomplishment at the Bennett Cup in beating the existing CRKW 13-14 girls’ club record in 100 backstroke with a time of 1:06.48! Beauregard has also been selected to attend a training camp this coming weekend with other Provincial Team members, and she is sure to impress after her successful weekend in Victoria.
