The following swimmers all had excellent performances: Cyan Ross-Van Mierlo 200M IM; Lauren Klenk, 200M free; Rachael teBulte, 200M free; Hannah Devries, 200M fly; Gabrielle Hanvold, 200M fly; Maneet Natt, 200M breast; Niallan Collier, 200M free; Tenysha Ross-Van Mierlo, 400M IM; and Riley Mager, 800M free.

The swimmers are now busy preparing for the December 14-16 competition in Kamloops, which is the last big meet for the club before the Christmas break.
