Six Inconnu swim club members were in Edmonton two weeks ago to compete at the Speedo Western Canadian Long Course Open. Of the six swimmers, three posted personal best times in various events.

Alex Hedges made it to the B final in the 50 metre freestyle race. She also set personal best marks in every distance she swam in over the weekend. The achievements were said to have been a significant accomplishment for her as it was her first time competing against such a high level of swimmers.

Emma Murdock posted a personal best in the 50 metre butterfly, and Brittany Welsh made the B final in the 50 metre backstroke. It marked the first time Welsh had qualified for a final against competition as high as it was.

Cale Murdock qualified for four B finals at the meet in the 50, 100, and 200 metre butterfly, and the 50 metre backstroke.

Skyeler Kerr made the A finals in the 50, and 100 metre butterfly. He also made the A finals in the 50, and 100 metre freestyle, and the 50 metre backstroke.

Benjamin Blackmon was in the A finals in the 50, 100, and 200 metre breaststroke, and the B final in the 200 and 400 metre individual medley. Blackman made a significant improvement in his 1,500 metre freestyle time as he improved it by 55 seconds by finishing in 17:59.59. The new time was also a club record.
