FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Inconnu swim team had several successful swim meets in a row over the past couple of weeks.
The swimmers were in Grande Prairie may 27th to the 29th for a meet. All of the club’s swimmers made finals in at least one event, with most placing in the top 3 of their respective age groups. Several intermediates from the team were able to get new AA and AAA standards, which were added to events in Kamloops and Victoria.
This past weekend, the Inconnu Swim Team sent a small contingent to compete in the annual Kamloops June Classic. The 15 swimmers placed second in the small team category. Cameron Louie, Eric Louie, Dayton Carson, Tytan Carson, and Griffin Ternier-Smith were the team’s top five points-getters.
One of the many highlights from the meet included Cameron Louie and Tytan Carson taking gold and silver in the 50m Butterfly, with only 1 / 100th of second separating the two of them. Eric Louie also achieved his fourth and fifth qualifying times for the Canadian Age Group Championships in Calgary this August. The team returns to Kamloops in three weeks’ time, for the BC AA Long Course Championships.
