The Hurricanes were represented by six swimmers at the BC Summer Games this past weekend. Sidney Clement, Josh DeCoteau, Keala Haigh, Emily Jones, Tyler Winsborrow and Natalie Yu all had a great time in a fun racing environment.

Here are the highlights from the swim meet.

Josh had an amazing meet, racing to best times in all of his events!
