The Castlegar Aquanauts competed at the Colville Valley Sharks Invitational Swim Meet over the past weekend. All of the competitors raced hard even with difficult weather conditions. Both Head Coach Nick Welychko and Assistant Coach Michaella Yang were proud of the team.

“This past weekend was definitely one to remember. It was rainy, windy and cold yet all of our swimmers competed so hard.  PrMeet records were broken by some of our swimmers, and best times were swum by many. I could not be any happier with everyone’s performances,” said Yang. Both coaches commented on how hard everyone has been training in practices, and the amount of effort everyone puts into excelling that much more. Both Yang and Welychko are looking forward to the Aquanauts’ home meet on the weekend of July 12-13.
