The Cranbrook Tritons Swim Club returned from a meet in Kelowna this past weekend with some impressive results, including qualifying six swimmers for provincial championships.

The club had nine swimmers at the Kelowna Aquajets Snowfest swim meet, with 95 per cent of the swims being best times for the athletes, with the top eight places collecting points for the club.

Tyler Carter, Madeline Hill, Sydney Kenke, Rhys Marlatt, Chloe Mayes, Sydney McDonald, Matthew Meuleman, Jayden White and Cam Wilson all participated in various events under the leadership of coach Dave Chisholm.

While McDonald didn’t finish in the top-eight of her swims, she was the most improved swimmer on the team, shaving a total of 43 seconds off her swim times.

Hill, Kenke, Mayes, White and Wilson qualified for AA provincials in Chilliwack, while Marlatt is headed to AAA provincials in Kamloops.

Marlatt had a stellar meet, with eight first-place finishes, while breaking meet records in the 50m Fly, 50m Freestyle and 100m Freestyle.

Before the meet, White had already qualified for the AA provincial championship, however, due to her example and leadership, Hll, Kenke, Mays and Wilson have also qualified for provincials.
