The Comox Valley Aquatic Club Sharks continued their success this past month with travels to Chilliwack and Duncan.
Chilliwack hosted the BC AA championships. The Sharks’ small team of four let their presence be known as each swimmer climbed the rankings. Josh Dolman was a strong leader throughout the meet as he raced with determination and pride, qualifying for the final in every race.
Not to be outdone, Amelia Elder lead her teammates with 100 per cent best times and podium finishes on each day, securing double gold and a silver medal.
Coach Kris Bell congratulated Tyra Arends and Janaya Ryan on their first AA championship: both swimmers carried themselves like champions.
Back on the Island, Duncan hosted a frenzy of Sharks at their Spring Break Invitational. Coach Scott led the Sharks to a slurry of best times.
Best friends Sydney Postle and Michaela Poetker raced to a combined 100 seconds in time dropped time from their races. The racing excitement was infectious as Avry Bowers continued to impress as she improved with every opportunity – dropping almost 40 seconds off her races.
Not to be outdone, Edyn Nowak could not be stopped, dropping a whopping 99 seconds in one race. Kali Brown, Samantha Naish, Nadya Sanders and Iris Tinmouth, all nine years old, raced every race with energy and smiles.
The excitement of the swim meet results were carried home with Nathan Miller and Sara Matthews returning from the competition with wide smiles, telling coach Kris how much time they dropped in each race.
Coach Kris Bell was ecstatic to see each swimmer so happy with their hard work and wonderful results.
