Killer Whales honour hard work

The Campbell River Swim Club gathered to honour its last year’s performances.

The Campbell River Swim Club gathered to honour its last year’s performances.

It was a challenging year for the club, as the Strathcona Pool was closed for six months to undergo renovations.  During this time the club focused on dryland exercises and travelled to Comox when the pool was available.

“I think under the challenging circumstances we were able to represent the city of Campbell River extremely well,” said Head Coach Chris Koopmans. “Our swimmers showed resilience in over-coming obstacles that were completely out of their control and this has really helped them as student athletes this year pursue their goals intently.”

Best swim performance recognition went to: Jasmine Skuse (8 & U Girl-50 Free); Gage Windle (8 & U Boy-50 Free); Melayana Beaudin (9-10 Girl-50 Free); Cole Reid (9-10 Boy-200 M); Mackenzie Padington (11-12 Girl-200 Breaststroke); Conner Skuse (11-12 Boy-1,500 Free); Jennifer Miller and Kiersten Padington (13-14 Girl-50 Free); Austin Johnson (13-14 Boy-50 Free); Karlyn Healy (15 & O Girl-200 Free); and David Palmer (15& O Boy-100 Free).

Most Improved Awards went to: Palmer; Catalina Manders; Maya Ruehlen; Lilan Forsyth; and Charlie Bridle.

Club Sportsmanship Awards went to: Palmer; Maddy Kowalko; Kasey Lathangue; Alexandra Apedaile; and Jocelyn Deimer.

The Tom Cross Award was given to Jenna Beaudin.
