Martina Montana: 8th for 400 freestyle Kara Beauregard: 2nd for 400 freestyle Ali Beck: 10th for 800 freestyle Cianna Dunn: 7th for 800 freestyle Brooke Wenger: 12th for 200 butterfly Summer Wenger: 13th for 200 backstroke

Kara Beauregard had another huge accomplishment at the Bennett Cup in beating the existing CRKW 13-14 girls’ club record in 100 backstroke with a time of 1:06.48. Beauregard has also been selected to attend a training camp this coming weekend with other provincial team members, and she is sure to impress after her successful weekend in Victoria.
