This past weekend Surrey Knights swimmers aged 10-13 participated in Age Group Provincial Championships in Vancouver. The team placed 12th out of over 30 teams and we had multiple medal winners. More importantly our swimmers represented what it means to be a Surrey Knights swimmer, demonstrating great team spirit and positive attitude throughout the entire weekend.
This was the first Provincial meet for many of our swimmers, which provided a great learning experience for all those involved. We would like to congratulate the swimmers on all of their best times and on rising to the challenge of racing other top swimmers in the Province. Our swimmers endured long sessions and busy warmups, but demonstrated the drive and determination we want from our athletes.
A special recognition for those swimmers that achieved personal success with podium finishes. Natalie Wongsoputro received Silver in 400 Free, Bronze in 200 Free and Bronze in 200 Backstroke in the Girls 11yr old age Group. Daniel Su received Silver medals in both 100 and 200 Breaststroke in the boys 12yr old category. Clara Suh got Silver in the Girls 11yr old 50 Freestyle. Ian Lee won Bronze in the boys 12yr old 50 Freestyle.
Way to go Knights!!!!
