PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – Thirteen members of the Inconnu Swim Team competed at the Prince George Medical Invitational the other weekend, competing against swimmers from across Northern BC.

For a few of Inconnu’s swimmers, this was one of their first-ever swim meets. Matthew Amler, Sofie Pedersen, Viggo Pedersen, Rylan Pomeroy, and Nate Rogers are all U10 swimmers.

Inconnu Assistant Coach Steve Sadownik said that overall, the experience was positive.

“For these young swimmers it was an opportunity to come and race in a beautiful facility with great conditions against swimmers of a high calibre,” said Sadownik. The 50 metre pool in Prince George can be separated into two 25 metre racing venues, this allowed for the meet to accommodate the 400 plus swimmers without a problem. As well, the lanes in PG are the proper regulated width which makes for fast swimming. These are things the younger swimmers have not seen before if they have only swam at our pool in Fort St John. Overall the swimmers appreciate the opportunity to come and race in such a nice facility… It makes for an enjoyable experience.”

Veteran swimmers Owen Lang and Alex Hedges led the Inconnu at the senior end of the team. Lang and Hedges each took home the overall aggregate trophy for scoring in their respective age groups. To top the weekend off, Hedges took home the eliminator swim-off prize as the top female Individual Medley swimmer. Teammate Brittany Welsh placed second, and Jayden Forster finished fifth.
