The Revelstoke Aquaducks came out with an impressive second place over the weekend at the Okanagan Swimming Regionals. With 10 teams and 370 swimmers, it brings the top talent to Kamloops to battle for a spot on the regional team at the provincial championships in two weeks.

The Aquaducks had 45 swimmers take part and placed second only to Kelowna, which brought 67 swimmers.

Three Revelstoke swimmers broke regional records:

— Nolan Gale in the division five 100m freestyle and 50m freestyle.

— James LeBuke in the division six 100m breaststroke, 200m individual medley, 50m freestyle, and 100m backstroke

— Beth Granstrom in the division six 100m backstroke and 200m individual medley.

The team also came home with one major trophy: the annual cheer competition. Popular songs are altered to have swimming lyrics. The Aquaducks did a mash-up of Grease songs, and appeared on deck Sunday in leather jackets, poodle skirts and greased-back hair. This was the third summer in a row Revelstoke was victorious.

Although this was the last meet for some swimmers, 33 athletes qualified for the BC Summer Swim Association provincials in Coquitlam from August 19-21. We wish these swimmers the best of luck as they head to the final championship meet of the season: Lutza Berkenbosch, Kenadie Stefura, Suri Stewardson, Yorke Parkin, Autumn Griffith-Doyle, Monica Parkin, Bence Berkenbosch, Kayln Gale, Madeleine Hobgood, Morgan Stefura, Sani Supinen, Kale Jay, Murdoch Tegart, Devyn Gale, Megan Hoshizaki, Hunter Stewardson, Sara Supinen, Morgan Tegart, Tye Hoshizaki, Alex Jay, Rebecca Brosch, Brynn Hoshizaki, Erik Brosch, Nolan Gale, James LeBuke, Beth Granstrom, Kate Granstrom, Logan Marcolli, Bailey LeBuke, Abbie Nesdoly, Anna Pfeiffer, Julia Gow and Emily Pfeiffer.
