Strong showing by Inconnu swimmers at Peace River meet

The club finished fourth overall among competing groups and swimmers came away with a 95% improvement on their personal best times. A number of swimmers also competed in events that were brand new to them.

Jayden Forrester achieved one of her two qualified Swim BC AA time standards in the 200 metre backstroke that allowed her to represent the swim club at the 2014 Swim BC Short Course AA Championships in Chilliwack. Emily Brady had a great meet as well. She had a break out swim in her 50 metre freestyle race and earned her first Swim BC A provincial time standard. Meanwhile Owen Lang earned an aggregate award for his efforts.

The majority of the athletes representing the Inconnu Swim Club were notice swimmers that were either in their first or second year with the group. It was a great opportunity for the swimmers as Peace River formatted the meet to allow newcomers to swimming to become comfortable with the rules and how a swim meet is organized.
