Inconnu Swim Club athletes were in Chilliwack last month for the Swim B.C. Provincial AA Championships. Swimmers posted personal best times and they also had breakthrough swims in at least one event.

Ty Haugan made his qualifying Swim B.C. AA times this season which is significant in that the organization made cut times harder this year. He also was able to shave 11 seconds off of his preliminary time set in the 400 metre freestyle.

Tate Haugan won in the 200 metre breaststroke as he overtook the field over the final 25 metres of the race. He also achieved his Swim B.C. AAA qualifying time in the event.

Jamie Jodoin made it to the finals of the 200 metre breaststroke and improved her personal best in the event by five seconds as she finished in 3:05.07.

David Shipalesky improved his times significantly in three of the four events he competed in. He also came close to meeting the Swim BC AAA qualifying times in the 1,500 metre freestyle and the 200 metre backstroke.

In a release Inconnu coach Jason Brockman said that he was impressed with the team results over the weekend. He added that he appreciates Swim B.C. providing a high level of competition for athletes as it allows them to enjoy the sport and have the opportunity to be recognized for their dedication and commitment.
