Western Canada Summer Games - Event Recap

15 August 2019 (Swift Current, SK) - The Western Canada Games, a once every four-year event, is over and done with and Cascade had some pretty incredible representation from five of our best youngsters:

Devon Angus

Addison Butler

Adam Connell

Caleb Gaine

Hayden Woodrow

The meet ran in the Swfit’s 6-lane 50m pool over the weekend through until the open water on Tuesday (10-13 August) and Team Alberta once again crushed it: 33 swimmers, 7 staff, 5 days of racing and 103 medals in swimming! Of those 103 medals Cascade grabbed 22 for the program - what a weekend!

The meet format was somewhat unique with timed finals in all events and limited number of swimmers from each province that could score as well as a limit of 1 relay team on the podium per event. At the end of the day it appears that it was a fantastic experience for all of our athletes who all came away with not only medals but a great growing experience.
