Wolfville Tritons start the season well
After only a few weeks of practice and, for many, learning what a swim competition was about for the first time, a team of the young Tritons swimmers headed to Clare to show what they could do.
The swimmers were very excited as their coaches had prepared them well for what they could expect and what they had to do, so getting there, it wasn’t too strange for them.
“They did so very well once they got there,” said head coach Moira Milward.
Top swimmers of the meet were 15-year-old Sophie Bezanson and 13-year-old Ayden Stoddart, who achieved their gold medals – the token that they have moved from the novice program to the age group program and that means more competition and at other venues other than Clare or Greenwood.
“Well done to both those athletes,” Milward said.
Other swimmers who achieved medal status were Payton Mills, 11, and Lucas Singleton, 15, who got their silver awards, and Maura Smith, 10, who achieved her bronze award. As well, many who attended the meet received those awards being achieved 67 best time ribbons.
Milward said at the presentation of these awards that the times achieved showed that there are many of these young swim- mers close levels soon.
“These young athletes improve very quickly, it is a joy to watch them,” she said. “They get so ex- to reaching higher cited when they receive their awards, making it an important time for the entire club to be part of.”
She also remarked that the coaches that guide the young team members do such an excellent job with excitable swimmers, staying calm when it gets busy.
“The club recognizes how much these coaches do and we are very grateful for their work,” she added.
Yougn swimmers from the Tritons club in Wolfville recently travelled to Clare for their first competition.
