County youngsters make waves
Two Glengarry girls are thriving in pool waters, having qualified for numerous events at next month’s regional meet in Ottawa. Fresh off claiming a pair of bronze medals at a competition last weekend in Etobicoke, Martintown’s 9-year-old Hailey McDonald has achieved seven regional qualifying times at the 10-year-old level. Greenfield’s Alivia Kyer, aged 10, has eight regional qualifying times at the 11-year old level. The duo trains 5 to 8 hours a week in the pool, under coach Cory Kyer with the Cornwall Sea Lions, and spends time in the gym as well. When asked of the appeal of the sport, the girls say they enjoy the travel, competition, and the quick start off the blocks.
