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.
