CVAC Sharks turning in torrid times at swim meets this season

Last weekend the Comox Valley Aquatic Club Sharks competed twice locally: once in a distance time trial with swimmers from Campbell River and once with teams from Ladysmith/Chemainus, Port Alberni and Campbell River.

On Saturday, 15 Sharks swam either a 1,500 metre or an 800m event, many for their first time. Of those swimming the event for a second or greater time the results were astounding. Emma Neufeld cut 32.15 seconds, Joyce Arends cut 52.19 seconds, Ethan Ashley cut 136.20 seconds (AAA time) and Joshua Dolman cut off 131.51 seconds.

Swimming in her first short-course 1,500, Brooke Lamoureux won her event in an Age Group Nationals qualifying time. Her 17:53.99 ranks her number two in Canada in her age group.

On Sunday, 47 Shark swimmers competed, with each squad of the club represented, including the Sharks School. Double digit drops in time were noted by Taya Bezanson, Alec Huisamen, Stefanie Johnson, Eric Jung (two), Michael Jung, William Munro, Caleb Ney, Rafe Perry (three), Emily Verret and Zachariah Wood.

Other impressive feats were swimmers who won all their events in their age groups, including: Tyra Arends, Juliana Bartemucci, Joshua Dolman, Brooke Lamoureux, Josiah Ney, Rafe Perry and Gabrielle Wolfe.
