The Revelstoke Aquaducks sent 18 swimmers to Kelowna for the third meet of the season. Each and every swimmer smashed their personal best or season best times, with the following collecting aggregate medals:

— Kenadie Stefura, 1st place, division 1;

— Yorke Parkin 2nd place, division 1;

— Autumn Griffith-Doyle 1st place, division 2;

— Bence Berkenbosch 3rd place, division 2;

— James LeBuke 1st place, division 5;

— Beth Granstrom, 1st place, division 6;

— Logan Marcolli, 3rd place, division 6;

— Anna Pfeiffer, 3rd place, division 7.

Bailey LeBuke earned four personal bests in six events, several of which were long standing and took a lot of determination to conquer. She has demonstrated great work ethic this season and the results are showing.

With more than 100 individual races amongst the 18 ducks, only two were disqualifications, which is a very impressive ratio. It shows the swimmers have been training hard and perfecting their races in preparation for the bigger meets to come — regionals and provincials.

The Ducks have a well-earned long weekend off, followed by the Penticton meet to start the second half of the regular season.
