The Golden Dolphins recently attended the 66th annual Kelowna Ogopogo swim meet.

Although it was a very hot and loud environment all the Golden Dolphins swam very well.

This was their best meet so far this season, with 28 swimmers attending. All swimmers that were present swam to the best of their ability, taking off lots of seconds and recording best times of the season.

Exceptional swimmers from the weekend were Div. 1 girls, Lauren Russel and Emma Janes.

They both took off amazing amounts of time as well as placing in the top eight in multiple events.

Zara Johnson was also awarded bronze for top Div. 5 girl, and Josh Hiroka silver, for Div. 6 boys.

Overall out of 12 teams, the girls team placed 5th, with the boys team placing 6th.

The Golden Dolphins placed 6th with combined boys and girls team points. Placing this high at one of the most competitive meets of this year was a big excitement for the team.

The Golden Dolphins then sent 60 swimmers to the Revelstoke to take part in a swim meet. The Dolphin coaches were very impressed as the team came in 4th out of 11 competitive teams.

Not only did the Dolphins place well, but best times were being swum almost every race.  Amazing swims were done by Odin Christakos, Hannah LaRoy, Julian Hudson, Devon Tress, Georgia Phillips, Ash-Lee Tress, Ben Arlt and many more.

Zara Johnson placed third overall in her age category (Div. 5 girls), Josh Hiraoka was second for Div. 6 boys, Ben Arlt held for Div. 7 boys and coaches Cynthia and Lochlan won his second medals in the girls and boys division 8 category. Josh Hiraoka also broke a meet record in the fifty fly, going a 28.8 seconds with the old meet record as a 29.2 seconds. Having such an incredible meet on the road is only getting the Dolphins very excited for their home meet. The Golden Dolphins swim meet will be on July 20/21 at the Golden Municipal Pool so come on out to cheer on your local swim team.
