County young­sters make waves

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens -

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.
