Swim team numbers swell in time for provincials

Last year the club sent just three swimmers to the provincial meet; this year 16 are going.

It has been a year of growth for the Wave Masters Swim Team in several ways, but none more impressive than the size of the contingent the squad will be sending to the provincials this weekend.

Last year the club sent just three swimmers to the provincial meet; this year 16 are going.

Coach Barry Healy said the meet next weekend will be the first provincials for many of the swimmers and the first swim meet for some.

Healy expects strong results from the masters swimmers.

“The club should have a few swimmers make the top eight places, with some aiming for top three,” he said.

This is also the first year the club will be participating in relays; they are fielding 12 teams.

The meet will be held at H2O in Kelowna. Over 250 swimmers are expected to take part.

This year the masters swim team has grown to close to 50 members ranging in age from 22 to over 60 years old.

The club swims five sessions per week and is open to all levels of swimmers.
