Kokanee swimmers top three club records

Another successful week for your Kokanee Summer Swim Club, recently the team participated in our annual Swim-A-Thon.

Princeton Kokanees were very successful in the Merritt Swim meet. Our team placed forth overall

Another successful week for your Kokanee Summer Swim Club, recently the team participated in our annual Swim-A-Thon. With all laps combined our team swam 58km, that’s like swimming all the way to Hedley and back.  That is very impressive Kokanees, great work. We look forward to finding out how much we raised with all those lengths. Our team is very proud of everyone’s hard work and dedication to make this yet again a very successful FUNdraiser for the club. Thank you to all the parents for cheering the kids on during this event, and for keeping track of all those laps.

Our Club swimmers of the week for June 9 and 13 were; Turtles swimmer Payton Barth who is now swimming  5m on her own, Development swimmer Carter Heron who has been working hard on his breast stroke, and junior/senior swimmer Maddy Fulton who has been doing every set with enthusiasm.

Our Club swimmers of the week for June 16-20 were;  Turtles swimmer Paisley Wessel who is now jumping in on her own, development swimmer Corben van Genne who swam 3 turtle races at our last meet unassisted, and junior/senior swimmer Aidan Neilson who always has a smile on his face, and brings a great attitude to every practice.  All of your hard work will pay off, congratulations and keep it up!

Princeton Kokanees were very successful in the Merritt Swim meet, we brought 34 swimmers to Merritt. Our team placed forth overall, and our boys had a third place overall finish. We had two aggregates; Nicholas Cimbaro (bronze) and Owen Bartlett (gold). We had three club records broken; Olivia Holloway 25m back, Ainsley Neilson 200IM, and Kate Barllett 100Free. Kiaira Anderson broke 40sec in 50free with 39.47 over-all time. We had 42 top five finishes, and many first time breaststroke races.

June has been a busy month, but all the practice time and swim meets have helped boost momentum and team moral as we continue to break personal times, and improve on our strokes.

Once again we invite the public to give our kids a high five when you see them, and show your support and acknowledge their hard work.
