The Revelstoke Aquaducks were in Penticton this past weekend, competing in the first swim meet of the summer swimming season.

Penticton hasn’t been on the competition calendar for a couple of years as the community has been renovating its recreational centre.

The facility was in great shape for the weekend meet, and many Aquaducks had their first experience in a 10-lane pool.

“This was the first meet of the season and although we only had about 25 swimmers attend, it was an absolute success,” said assistant coach Cynthia Pfeiffer. “Many of our swimmers had personal best times and the meet got the kids excited to be racing again. That’s exactly what we need in preparation for the Nelson meet next weekend where we have over 40 swimmers going. Good job Ducks!”
