Four Sooke swimmers — Lucy Bridal

Strong strokes from Sooke

On the weekend, Saanich Commonwealth Place hosted the Vancouver Island Regional Championships. Sooke swimmers performed very well.

On the weekend of June 8, Saanich Commonwealth Place hosted the Vancouver Island Regional Championships. Four Sooke swimmers — Lucy Bridal, Katie Houlahan, Nicholas Ralph and Clarke Hopkins — all performed very well over the long and exciting weekend.

Some highlights include the 10-and-under free relay in which Clarke Hopkins and Nicholas Ralph swam. This relay came  11 overall in the final results. Clarke Hopkins also bettered his 200 freestyle time by seven seconds. Lucy Bridal had a tough schedule but proved how determined she was, going best times in all six of her individual events and tirelessly helping out her team with the 11-12 girls Medley Relay.

Great job swimmers!

If you would like your child to experience Island Swimming, there will be a Summer Skills Program in Sooke (numbers permitting) throughout the summer.  The sessions are open to all levels of ability and give swimmers the opportunity to learn new skills while improving their fitness level.  We do require the child to be at least 6 years of age, comfortable swimming in deep water and able to swim 15 meters.

Please see www.islandswimming.com or email info@islandswimming.com for complete information.
