Two Comox Valley swimmers have been selected by SwimBC to compete for Team BC at the 2015 Western Canada Summer Games.

Jordyn Ryan and Brooke Lamoureux, both members of the Comox Valley Aquatic Club Sharks, are on the girls’ team that will be part of the 32-athlete B.C. squad in Wood Buffalo, Alta. for the Aug. 7-16 Games. The swimming events will take place Aug. 13-16.

There is a strong Comox Valley connection to Team BC as Team Leader Mike Flegel of SwimBC coached the CVAC Sharks from 1993 through 2006.

“The selection committee used a selection criteria to choose a team that has strength and depth, and we were pleased that almost all of the swimmers nominated were able and willing to compete at this event for Team BC,” said Flegel.

 

“The swimmers represent almost every region from across B.C., and should be one of the strongest teams we’ve ever fielded at this competition.”

Tina Hoeben (Penticton) and Rod Barratt (Victoria) will be the head boys and girls coaches, respectively.

Darryl Rudolf (Campbell River) will be the para-swimming coach and Carrie Matheson (SwimBC) will act as Team Manager, while the Special Olympics will have Aaron Leontowich (Kamloops) as coach and Brianna Kowalski (Abbotsford) as manager.
