FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Inconnu Swim Club held their Winter Freeze Invitational meet last weekend.
Four other clubs from across the region came to town for the meet, which had swimmers of all ages and levels participating. This meet was a great opportunity for the athletes to either try new events for the first time, or be able to swim events that they would not usually swim.
Inconnu head coach Steve Carson says that for the first two and a half months of the season the team has been working with the swimmers on developing , improving and honing their techniques. Carson says that he was staggered both by the number of best times, and the amounts of time that those swimmers had taken off their previous marks. Julien Kemp, Cameron Louie, Alex Hedges, Tate Haugan, and the relay team of Kade Schwarz, Cameron Louie, Tytan Carson and Owen Lang all set new club records in a variety of events.
