FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Inconnu Swim Club returned to action for the first time in two years at the end of November, welcoming the Grande Prarie Piranhas for the Sadownik Invitational on November 28th and 29th.

Both teams revived the cross-border rivalry in the second meeting this season, with the first coming in Grande Prairie on November 21st and 22nd.

Swimmers competed in 21 events across all four strokes and individual medley disciplines. Competitors ranged from seven years old to 16, racing anywhere from 25 metres to 800 metres.

Athletes, coaches and parents cheered on the swimmers, creating some heavily-missed energy in the North Peace Leisure Pool.

According to coach Josh Sorensen, the Inconnu boys won by a score of 2174-2007 and the Grande Prairie Piranhas won the girls side by a score of 3204-1933.

Sorensen says the club is looking forward to sending swimmers to the JP Fiset Invitational in Edmonton from December 16th to 19th to finish off 2021 in style.

The JP Fiset Invitational hosts some of the top swimmers from Alberta, giving Inconnu athletes a chance to test their skills against some top level competition.

According to Sorensen, the top three aggregate awards went to the following Inconnu swimmers:

Congratulations to all competitors!
