The B.C. Provincial Summer Swimming Championships were a great one for the Revelstoke Aquaducks, with a club-high 30 swimmers in attendance at the three day meet in Coquitlam last weekend.

There were great expectations going in and the swimmers delivered, with every swimmer going at least one personal best, and most going multiple best times. The medal count for the team leaving Coquitlam was 17, including the regional relay medals. Winners were:

— Nolan Gale, Division 3 Boys: gold in the regional relay;

— James LeBuke, Division 3 Boys: gold in the 50m backstroke, silver in the 50m breaststroke, bronze in the 50m freestyle, and gold in the regional relay;

— Brynn Hoshizaki, Division 3 Girls: silver in the 50m freestyle, bronze in the 100m freestyle, gold in the regional relay;

— Beth Granstrom, Division 4 Girls: bronze in the 200m individual medley and the 100m backstroke;

— Bryce Molder, Division 5 Boys: gold in the 200m individual medley, silver in the 100m freestyle, and bronze in the 100m butterfly Bronze and regional relay

— Josh Rota, Division 6 Boys: bronze in the regional relay

— Eliza McGuire, Division 8 Girls: silver in the 100m butterfly and bronze in the 200m individual medley.

While every medal was accompanied by a new club record, there were times that records went down without a medal, including LeBuke’s fourth place in the 100m freestyle and Granstrom’s fifth place in the 50m butterfly

Also going down was Blair Muldoon’s 13-year-old 200m individual medley record for Division 6 Boys, when Josh Rota came ninth in his race.

Most members of the Aquaducks made the finals of their events over the course of the weekend.
