A strong season continued  for The Castlegar Aquanauts, who competed at the Kimberley Seahorses Swim Meet this past weekend. Giving a tremendous effort, the swimmers amazed onlookers.

Coaches Nick Welychko and Michaella Yang were impressed. “With only 25 swimmers competing at the meet, both Nick and I were astonished at the way the meet turned out,” said Yang. Less than half of the team was there, and with each swimmer competing harder than ever, we took another victory.  “Being the last regular meet of the season, I was so excited with how well everyone was swimming,” Yang concludedd.

“Michaella and I are really looking forward to both regionals and provincials,” commented Welychko.

The Aquanauts are preparing for the Kootenay Regional  Meet this weekend in Trail. Both coaches are ecstatic to see the swimmers qualify for provincials, and to see how much more the swimmers will push their own limits.
