Despite the weather reports that threatened rain for the weekend, the decks of the Brockelhurst pool in Kamloops stayed dry during the racing hours, allowing for plenty of fast racing from the Revelstoke Aquaducks.

Best times were flying at the first Finals meet of the season. More than a dozen Aquaducks won aggregate awards in their respective divisions, and two Ducks broke meet records, as well as Revelstoke Aquaduck Club Records.

The third aggregates were division six girl Gina Cinelli, division eight girl Nadia Salon, division four boy Colm Molder, and division six boy Josh Rota.

The second aggregates were division three girl Brynn Hoshizaki, division eight girl Rosemary Kelsall, division two boy Alex Jay, division three boy Nolan Gale, division six boy Liam McCabe, and division eight boy Cam Molder.

The first aggregates from Revelstoke were division one girl Kayln Gale, division two boy Tye Hoshizaki, and division three boy James Lebuke, who went yet another personal best this weekend in the 50 metre backstroke, improving the club record to 37.21 seconds in an event winning effort.

Bryce Molder won first aggregate for the division five boys, winning all four of his individual events. Bryce broke two meet records in the process, in the 200 meter individual medley and the 100 meter butterfly on the first night of the meet. His 1:07.69 was enough to bring down the club record of 1:07.74 that was set by Eric Huettmeyer in 2005, as well as better the Tsunami meet record. A best time in the 100 meter freestyle had Bryce breaking his own record from the year before by just over half a second for his second club record of the weekend.

To cap off an excellent meet of fast and fun swimming, the Aquaducks beat out all the other teams to win the overall team title by scoring the most points at the meet in an excellent group performance that has the team ready to race at the competition in Kelowna next weekend.
