Sooke swimmers produce personal bests

Some achieved A standards, others AA standards, said Sooke coach Marissa Nadin.

Six swimmers from Sooke competed with the Tyee Aquatic Club at the recent Nanaimo Riptides Invitational Swim Meet.

Every swimmer achieved personal best times, some achieved A standards, others AA standards, said Sooke coach Marissa Nadin.

“To achieve these standards so early in the season is a huge accomplishment that shows the team’s success and determination in training,” Nadin said.

“All the swimmers left the meet feeling accomplished and successful and are ready to take on the next big meet.”

Sooke swimmers competing were Matthew Mitchell, Emma Beatty, Raleigh McKeown, Tyrell Wydenes, Clarke Hopkins and Nicholas Ralph.

Next action for the Tyee Aquatic Club is the Bennet Cup, which will be held at Commonwealth Pool in Saanich next weekend.

The Tyee Aquatic Club expanded to Sooke in September and trains at the SEAPARC Leisure Centre pool. Club registration is ongoing at tyeeaquaticlub.com.
