Mar­lins rake in medals in Red Deer

Medicine Hat News - - SPORTS -

It’s time to make head­way if you’re a swim­mer, and sev­eral did just that this past week­end in Red Deer.

At the Catalina Valen­tine In­vi­ta­tional, Al­berta Mar­lin Aquatic Club ath­letes com­bined for a ton of podium fin­ishes. With zones later this month in Cal­gary and provin­cials next month in Ed­mon­ton, get­ting faster might be more im­por­tant than gold, sil­ver or bronze — but the medals cer­tainly don’t hurt.

Emily Sch­lenker led the medal haul with five gold and a sil­ver. Del­rae Vet­ter had six medals, in­clud­ing three gold, a sil­ver and two bronze. Parker Maxwell also came home with six, one win plus five third-place fin­ishes. And both Brandt Swaren and Kristin Holling­worth earned two gold apiece, with Swaren adding a bronze.

Other medal­ists were Amos Rus-Haicu, Munro Maxwell, De­rian Swaren and El­iz­a­beth Bowey.

Eleven Mar­lins will be at zones Feb. 25 and 26.
