KISU swimmers reach goals

Feb Fling New Time Standards

KISU swim club members achieved best times and reached AA time standards during their February Fling meet at the Penticton Community Centre.

The Penticton swim club hosted the meet on the weekend and coach Tina Hoeben said it went well for her athletes.

“We had six swimmers who made their AA times to qualify for the meet – Bryce and Eric Doroshuk, Justin Fotherby, Riley Kascak, Nikita Logie and Jaxon Stel,” said Hoeben. “A couple of stand outs – Faith Lockinger went her first A time ever, and Evan Peters went his first AAA time.”

Others who stood out to Hoeben were Tyler Wall finishing the 100-metre fly in one minute, 12 seconds, Theo Oliver’s 58.5 seconds in the 100-m freestyle (previous best time of 1:01), and Jaxon Stel’s 4:49 for 400-m freestyle.

The meet had a lower attendance from other clubs because of timing with this event between larger high-level meets.

“It was a very positive experience for those that came,” said Hoeben. “Heats and finals on the Friday were very exciting.”
