Whalers win Chilliwack meet
The Abbotsford Whalers were swimming in gold at last weekend’s Chilliwack Stingrays Swim Meet.
Despite fielding only a split squad in Chilliwack, the club won the meet with more than 3,000 points and more than a dozen medals.
Sarah Portas and Alycia Connorton each won four golds in their respective divisions, while Emilio Nicolato claimed three gold medals and added a silver.
The Whalers sent another contingent of swimmers east to Richmond for its Watermania meet.
The Whalers’ nine swimmers accumulated eight gold, four silver and a bronze medal between them.
Fallon Quast, Emily De Jager and Hailey Klenk led the way for the Whalers.
Quast broke the Division 4 butterfly record, with a blistering time of 31.1 seconds.
