The Blue Devils Swim Club ended another successful summer swim  season of fun, friendship and  swimming with families coming together  to celebrate all the swimmers’  accomplishments.

Div. 4 Zoe McDougall, runner -up Myia Dunn. Div. 4 Sam Helpard, Div. 5 Amelia Helpard, runner-up Sydney Kuhnert. Div. 5 Caleb Clarke. Div. 6 Megan Rousseau.

Most Improved Swimmer in each group: Developmental  Stephen Henly. Junior Cole Barker. Senior Caleb Clarke.

Junior Rookie of the Year given to swimmers in their first year of competitive swimming: Matthew Strilets and Henry Holland.

True Blue Award:  Given to two outstanding swimmers in each group.                                                Sydney Kuhnert,  Zoe McDougall, Jaida Blasco, Morgan Jackson, Ava Webb, Spencer Webb.

The Herb Bradley Award, dedicated to the first coach and founder  of the club in 1948, is given to a swimmer who is dedicated to the sport, shows good team spirit and sportsmanship, contributes to club activities and is a good role model and team leader.                                                                              Congratulations to Megan Rousseau, who also broke three club records this year.

“Many thanks to all the parents, swimmers ,  coaches and past executive for another wonderful summer swim season,” a club spokesperson said.
