The sun shone in Lumby this weekend as the Revelstoke Aquaducks competed in their second meet of the season.

Beth Granstrom started the meet off right winning the 200m individual medley in a new club record of a 2:49.0, bettering the previous record by just over half a second. Also having a meet to remember was division five Bryce Molder, who won all six of his individual events. Other event winners were Sani Supinen, Tye Hoshizaki, Beth Granstrom, Liam McCabe and James Lebuke.

Many other Ducks cracked the top three, such as: Brynn Hoshizaki, Madeleine Hobgood, Stefanie Wallach, Gina Cinelli, and Colm Molder. Podium finishers keeping it in the family were Elizabeth and Jaclyn Elliott, Jackson and Ryder Litke and Nolan, Devyn and Kaylin Gale.

There were also numerous top-eight finishes from other swimmers on the team: Megan Hoshizaki, Raine and Leif Carnegie, Morgan and Murdoch Tegart, Kate Granstrom, Anna Pfeiffer, Caine McCabe and Claudia Cinelli.

The Duck relays were once again a force with multiple teams winning their division or coming in the top three. Perhaps most importantly, the team came together to cheer each other on to excellence when others were in the water, standing at the end of the lane and alongside the pool.

One of the Penticton coaches commented on the Aquaducks’ wonderful sportsmanship and proper race etiquette during the meet. So while everyone may not have quite cracked the top of their division, many personal bests were achieved as the club closed out another successful meet, and gained more momentum heading towards next weekend’s competition in Kamloops.
