The Campbell River Killer Whales swim club travelled to Nanaimo this past weekend for their first official competition of the season.

The meet included over 250 swimmers from clubs located throughout B.C. The club travelled down with a strong contingent of 41 swimmers and really left a mark on the competition. The local club raced hard and represented the town of Campbell River extremely well. Included were many personal best times and podium performances.

CRKW had some great individual and team performances at this swim meet. Some highlights included outstanding performances from the new up and coming swimmers: Lilan Forsyth, Gage Windle, Avery Moskal, and Aleah Jordan. Not be outdone were the efforts displayed by Melanyna Beaudin, Jasmine Skuse,  MacKenzie Padington , James Sidhu and Connor Milligan.

“There were some real strong performances put in by Connor Milligan, Lilan, Gage and Melayna at this meet,” said coach Dave Healy. “Especially exciting, was the emergence of our 10 and under boys group; consisting of Gage Windle, Carson Dunn and Travis Lathangue”

“It has been some time since CRKW have displayed a strong group of young male swimmers…very exciting indeed.”

CRKW will continue with multiple competitions coming up in the near future. With hard work and dedication: this team of swimmers will continue to build on their successes in pursuit of future glory. CRKW has just begun their season and always looks for new recruits and athletes in our community.

“We offer a program that fits many and most lifestyles,” Healy said.  “As a competitive swim club, we offer life skill instruction with the opportunity to become the next Olympian.”

“Our former, and current successes, illustrate that our program is something that every athlete in our community should check out. We are proud to provide a superior program for Campbell River’s young athletes.”
