“All three swimmers had a wonderful experience, and came away with best times, and incredible memories,” said Pam Drydale of KSSC. “Ella Kalin placed 8th in 50 breaststroke and 15th in the 100 IM.

“Brooklyn Burki placed in the top eight for all four of her events: Gold 200 IM and a provincial record that had been in place since 1991, 4th in 50 free style, bronze in 100 back and silver in 100 free.”
