Manning off to nationals

This past weekend para-swimmer, Maggie Manning, a Selkirk swim team member qualified for a national swim meet in Toronto

This past weekend para-swimmer, Maggie Manning, a Selkirk swim team member qualified for a national swim meet in Toronto, later in the season.

Manning made her qualifying swim on Saturday morning in the 100-metre butterfly stroke then met the national standard again in her 400-m freestyle.

That excitement was followed by a dramatic effort by Chantel Jeffrey, 13, to make the 15-and-under Western Canadian Championship standard in the 1,500-m freestyle, qualifying to swim the Western Championships in Edmonton in February by two-tenths of second.

Ethan Skofteby improved by over 10 seconds in most of his races and had a first and three second-place finishes in the 11-year-old boys group.

Jacob Rambo shaved off over 100 seconds in the 1,500-m freestyle and finished the weekend with two silvers, and two bronze medals in the 13-and-under group.

In his first meet of the season, Ty Webster-Locke, had two victories in the 100-m freestyle and 100-m individual medley, and three other top-three performances in the 14- and 15-year- old boys’ category, while teammate Olin Mosher was top three in the 100-m IM and had lifetime best swims in the 100-m breaststroke and 200-m IM.

Logan Pilas showed strong early season form in the 50-m freestyle, capturing second, and was third in the 100-m IM and top five in three other events in the 16-and-over boys.

Ethan Quilty rounded out the boys’ results with a bronze in the 100-m IM and two other top-five performances in the 14- and 15-year-old boys  group plus a best time in the 100-m breast stroke.

Molly Fogarty continued her amazing season with three second place finishes and again swam lifetime best times in each event.

Local swimmer Bree Cooper won four of her six events in the 16-and-over girls category.
