Dolphins hosted Okanagan teams for annual swim meet

Find out how the Golden Dolphins did at their home meet last weekend

Over the past weekend the Golden Dolphins Swim Club hosted their very own meet for the Okanagan region with teams attending from Kamloops, Kelowna, Lumby, Merritt, Revelstoke, and Salmon Arm.

The Dolphins had an overwhelming amount of personal bests by all the swimmers that attended.

Our youngest swimmers, Annika, Holt, Jessica, Julianna, Katelyn, Nathan, Olivia, Peter, and Salil did the ultimate cannon ball and crushed their previous times from last year with improvements unprecedented at this time in the competition season.

At the other end of the spectrum we had three master swimmers Brianna, Justin, and Nick who made a lasting impact on the younger swimmers.

Our first time swimmers this year included Alaina, Anna, Henry, Jacob, Logan, and Sierra. They made some great improvements on their strokes and racing techniques. They had a great weekend with all their teammates and look forward to participating in many more meets in the future.

On the podium for overall points were Dolphins Amelia, Emma, Emme, Hannah, Josh, Justin, Logan, Malcolm, Malcom, Meghan, Quinn, Roxy, and Zara. Our three Division 1 boys, who are Malcom, Logan, and Malcolm, swept the medal podium with a gold, silver and bronze finish.

Congratulations to all the Golden Dolphins for their hard work. Coaches Caprice and Josh are anticipating even more for the squad racing in Penticton this upcoming weekend. We would like to thank all the volunteers and community members who have supported the club this season.
