Among the club’s top per­form­ers was Tiana Hill who fin­ished first in three events in the 12-year-old girls grade. Tiana won the 50m but­ter­fly, 100m in­di­vid­ual medley and 50m freestyle. She also picked up sec­ond plac­ings in the 50m breast­stroke and 100m back­stroke and a fifth in the 200m freestyle.

Danni Glassie-Ryan, swim­ming in the 14-year-old girls grade, won the 100m back­stroke and 50m freestyle. She also fin­ished sec­ond in 50m but­ter­fly, third in the 100m in­di­vid­ual medley, and fifth in the 50m back­stroke.

In the same grade, Re­becca Muir fin­ished sec­ond in the 200m freestyle, 100m in­di­vid­ual medley, 100m breast­stroke and 100m back- stroke. She was third in the 50m breast­stroke and sixth in the 50m but­ter­fly.

In the 15-year-old girls grade, Bryleigh Telfer had four top five fin­ishes in­clud­ing sec­ond in 50m breast­stroke and third in 50m but­ter­fly.

The club’s other com­peti­tors Laura Keir, Shauna Glassie-Ryan, Rylie Neil, Brooke Sul­li­van, Kristin Dyk­stra and Cullen Glassie-Ryan com­peted well, gain­ing valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence.
