Members of the King’s Christian School Swim Team

It has been a very successful season for the King’s Christian School Swim Team.

Fourteen swimmers attended zone championships in late October with six swimmers advancing to the provincials held this past weekend at Watermania in Richmond.

Among the highlights were Brayden Gilliam’s first-place finish in 50-metre butterfly, sixth place in 100-m freestyle and Abbie Nesdoly’s eighth-place finish in 50-m backstroke.

All races were combined age groups from Grade 8 to 12. Matthew Nesdoly, Grade 8, also swam in 50-m backstroke and 100-IM, providing competition for his much older competitors. In his events, he was the fastest of all Grade 8 swimmers at this provincial meet.

Fellow teammates Benjamin Novakowski and Gaelyn Gilliam joined Brayden and Matthew on both the medley and free relay, improving their provincial standing by 10 places with best times. They placed 12th and 14th. They were the youngest team in the competition. The team was led by fellow swimmer and coach, Natajsha Nesdoly, who provided friendship, encouragement and guidance for races. Congratulations to the entire team.
