This past weekend in Golden was a scorcher as the Golden Dolphins hosted the Okanagan Region teams at their outdoor pool for the last meet before the Regional Championships in two weeks.

Once again the Revelstoke Aquaducks finished second overall as well as second in both the girls and boys divisions. However, the team took home a season high of 15 aggregates out of a possible 40, the most out of any team in attendance, including the hosts. This is particularly impressive in light of the fact that the Ducks just finished their “Survivor Week” which had them finishing up the week of challenges by running a triathlon the Friday morning before the meet.

In the Division One girls, Kaylin Gale received third aggregate and Sani Supinen first.

Division Two girls had Hunter Stewardson and Devyn Gale collecting third and second aggregates respectively. On the boys side, Alex Jay earned first aggregate with some runaway performances, while Tye Hoshizaki picked up third aggregate.

Division Three girl Brynn Hoshizaki swam her way to second aggregate with Division Three boy James LeBuke doing the same. Division Three boy Nolan Gale kept it in the family by tying for third aggregate, making the Gale swimmers three for three this meet.

Jackson Litke bulled his way through to a third aggregate in the Division Four boys.

Bryce Molder had another great meet winning all four of his events for a perfect 56 points and first aggregate for the Division Five boys.

Gina Cinelli swam a hard meet to put herself into the position of second aggregate for the Division Six girls, and Jordan Cwikula picked up a third aggregate at his first full meet of the season in the Division Six boys.

Another consistent scorer was Emily Pfeiffer, who like Molder, swam a perfect meet winning all four events for first aggregate in her Division Seven category. Jacob Wallach pulled second aggregate for the Division Seven boys.

So, while perhaps a little sunburnt, the Aquaducks return to  Revelstoke time laden down with plenty of hardware while looking forward to Penticton where Regionals will be hosted the first weekend of August, hoping to qualify for the Provincial Championships.
