The Packet (Clarenville) - - Sports -

The Clarenville WaveRun­ners earned, for the first time, the ti­tle of Sum­mer Club Cham­pi­ons in Gan­der Aug. 24-26.

The club re­ceived top points for the male di­vi­sion and sec­ond place in the fe­male di­vi­sion, with the added total points com­ing out on top.

Be­sides win­ning the pro­vin­cial ti­tle, there were many in­di­vid­ual achieve­ments in­clud­ing six bro­ken records, four top achiever awards, and many per­sonal bests.

McCall Ryles of the 17/18 male di­vi­sion broke three records (100m freestyle, 50m but­ter­fly, 100m IM). Ryles was also a member of the 17/18 male freestyle and med­ley re­lay teams that broke records in both swims at the event. Other mem­bers of the re­lay team were Noah Bruce, Isaac Avery and Jack Ryles.

The 13/14 fe­male med­ley re­lay team also broke the record for their swim. Mem­bers of the team were Sara Squibb, Jes­sica Old­ford, Heather Prosser and Amy Stephen­son.

WaveRun­ner’s awarded top achiever in­cluded Lucas His­cock (11/12 male di­vi­sion), Jack Ryles (15/16 male di­vi­sion), Mia Win­sor (17/18 fe­male di­vi­sion) and McCall Ryles (17/18 male di­vi­sion).

Over 400 swim­mers (in­clud­ing 67 from WaveRun­ners) rep­re­sented nine teams from across the prov­ince.

“All of our swim­mers per­formed well and their hard work has paid off,” said WaveRun­ners vice-pres­i­dent Tracey Bruce. “It says a lot for our swim­mers and coaches. To say we are proud is an un­der­state­ment. This has been a goal our club has dreamed and worked hard for since the be­gin­ning of the WaveRun­ners.

“Not hav­ing a com­mu­nity pool to swim in, we’ve been very lucky to have ac­cess to the Wave Ho­tel’s pool to for our prac­tices.”


The Clarenville WaveRun­ners were awarded the pro­vin­cial ti­tle of Sum­mer Club Cham­pi­ons.
