Congratulations to Finlay, Justin L, Lorenzo and Megan who qualified and attended the

2019 Western Canadian Championships in Edmonton

this past weekend.    

It was a tougher meet as 3 of the swimmers had just returned from Toronto after competing at World Trials for over a week and with only 1 day rest in Okotoks (and catch up on school)  then had to  leave for the next competition.   They all still swam really well and the team left Edmonton with all achieving more Senior National and Trials time standards.  Lorenzo achieved his
Senior National time for the 1st time and narrowly missed his Trials time by .02 in the 50 Breaststroke.

Another 5 Age group club records were broken and 4 overall club records broken and several medals achieved.

Finlay also achieved the Aggregate High Point for 17 & over boys for the meet.
