The Dolphins are training harder than ever and are now fully into their summer meet season. This past weekend 16 swimmers and two coaches attended the swim meet in Lumby B.C.

The event was held at a small outdoor pool, making it good practice for those swimmers hoping to qualify for the Provincial Championships in Coquitlam in August later this year.

There were many notable performances, a lot of which came from the younger swimmers. Marika Sutter (Division 3), Amelia Hudson (Division 2), and Quinn Morgan (Division 3) all had some very impressive swims for such an early season meet, as well as Rowan Baxendale and Ella Janes, two six-and-under swimmers who competed for their first time in relay events.

The team is travelling to Kamloops this weekend and the coaches hope to see an even better turnout and even more best times!
