Stingrays kick it up a notch

Several personal best times set at Kimberley swim meet

After an intense Challenge Week last week, the Stingrays had another amazing meet this weekend in Kimberley. Every swimmer had one or more personal best times this weekend with some swimmers taking off as much as 18 seconds.

We brought home five aggregate medals: Juliana Zhou placed 3rd in division 4 girls, Logan Blair placed 2nd in division 6 boys, Kayla Fraser placed 1st in the women’s Open Category, assistant coach Diego Greenwood placed 1st in division 5 boys, and head coach Samme Beatson placed 3rd in division 8 girls.

The Stingrays also broke two meet records this weekend. Juliana Zhou set a new meet record in the girls division 4 100m breaststroke with a time of 1:32.12, two seconds faster than the old record. Coach Samme Beatson broke her old meet record in the 50m butterfly with a time of 33.09.

Aurora Watson-Sass had amazing first swim meet this weekend participating in three events and two relays.The Stingray parents joined in the fun this weekend and entered into a parent’s relay. Congratulations and thanks to Sean Miller, Robin Heathey, Ashlea Lutz, Garth Shubert, Amy Exner and Tara Smiley for participating.

The team is eagerly preparing for the next swim meet — the regional championships to be held in Castelgar August 8-9.
