Delwyn Marcoux swam great and earned some new official times. Matthew Munro swam 100 per cent best times while older brother William swam well too.  He dropped double digits in both the 200 free and the 50 fly.

Edyn Nowak tried hard and swam well. Janaya Ryan had the greatest improvement in a single race – 52.65 seconds off her 200 freestyle. Big sister Jordyn won every race she was entered in – that was six gold.  Teammate Brendan Sharp earned a gold too.

Emily Verret made 100 per cent best times including a double digit drop in the 100 IM.  Emma Wolfe swam best times in seven out of eight races including a great 36.02 second cut from her 200 freestyle time. Big sister Gabrielle took home five gold, two silver and one bronze.

Coach Scott was very proud of his swimmers and left the meet beaming.

The Sharks will be hosting a meet on Sunday, April 21 and invite everyone to come out and take in the action at the Aquatic Centre.
