Peace River, AB. – The Inconnu Swim Club kept the momentum going from before the holiday break with a successful weekend at a swim meet in Peace River.

Twenty swimmers competed in the meet, aged thirteen and under. Ryder Modde and Finn Rogers won the silver and bronze aggregates in the Boys eight and under age group. Nate Rogers captured the gold in the Boys 9-10 group. In the Girls 11-12 category Grace Adam won gold while Frankie Woods took home the silver. Dayton Carson won gold in the Boys 11-12 group while Kade Schwarz also swam to a gold aggregate in the Boys 13-14 aged competitors.

“This event features the younger swimmers,” said head coach Steve Carson. “We had a lot of new kids compete in distance races [800- and 1,500-metre freestyle] and most had never competed in those events. There was a lot of nerves but as coaches, we know that they are fully capable of. It was a great way to instill some confidence in them.”

Next up the club is a trip to Grande Prairie this weekend which will feature the older swimmers.
