Young members of the CVAC Sharks were in fine form at the Fav Five swim meet.

Comox Valley Aquatic Club Sharks host Fav Five swim meet

The Comox Valley Aquatic Club recently hosted several clubs from B.C. Over 60 Sharks competed at the first meet of the season hosted at the Comox Aquatic Centre.

The Fav Five is the first competition of the season that the Sharks host. And it was a first ever for some of the Sharks youngest competitors.

The excitement was contagious with the newest Shark Schoolers and some of the second- and third-year Sharks racing to personal bests. For some of these Sharks, this was the first time they stepped on the diving blocks.

Head coach Kris Bell noted, “As a coach and a parent, the pride is overwhelming to see young swimmers achieve personal firsts.”

Highlights from the competition saw Shark School siblings Ava and Alvin Timpug, Yuna and Jemin Park, Gabby and Emma Delorme improve on their times and skills.

Shark Schoolers placing in the top three: Lilian Anish-Nesling, Gabrielle Delorme, Auceanne Guerineau, Hailey Hickman, Jasmin Ho-Gillis, Chantelle Lambert, Alex Nicholson, Jemin Park, Emma Pignatel, Aiden Timpug, Ava Timpug and Seth Williams.

 

Bell gave a special thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors who helped ensure every young swimmer and parent had the opportunity to cheer on every Shark in the water.
