This past weekend we had three days of fast swimming at the Winter Regional A Championship in Salmon Arm. We had 14 swimmers attend with a total of 103 individual races and 5 relay races. Delano had challenged the swimmers to hold or improve on the 4thplace team rank from last year. Well we held 4thplace overall team ranking with 7 fewer swimmers so we feel we met the challenge!
We won lots hardware at this meet! In fact, we won 8 Gold Medals, 14 Silver medals and 14 Bronze medals in individual racing.
Our relay teams also had great success in the pool placing; first in the Mixed 11-12 200 Medley Relay (Peter Kunka, Jonas Mengr, Kyah DiMitri and Morgan Rogalsky), second in the Mixed 15 & Over 200 Free Relay (Connor Berrisford, Phoebe Chalmers, Juliana McDiarmid and Holden Berrisford) and third in the Mixed 13-14 Medley Relay (Sarah Bremmer, Gavin Rogalsky, Evan Wellborn and Juliana McDiarmid). Over the course of the meet we averaged 80 % best times with loads of time drops.
Golden goggles, awarded to the swimmer that had the most success has to go to Kyah Dimitri who won 3 golds, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals and dropped at total of almost 46 seconds. She also earned the team a whopping 105 points. Special mention has to also go out to Phoebe Chalmers, Gavin Rogalsky and Peter Kunka for outstanding performances in the pool!
