Another Successful AA Championships for the Kelowna AquaJets! We had 19 swimmers joined 370 swimmers from around B.C. in Surrey with some impressive results. "The swimmers stepped up and raced, many swimmers moving up in the rankings and lots of improvement." Says Cody Hitchcock, AquaJets Assistant Head Coach.
Over the 3 day meet we had 5 swimmers reach the podium. Multiple medalists were Denzel Mohamed in the Boys 15 & over category with 3 Bronze medals (100 Free, 200 Back, 200 IM) and Emilia Obedkoff in the Girls 15 & over category with 2 Bronze medals (200 Fly and 100 Breast). Kjel Cartier captured Bronze in the 12 year old boys 200 Free, Ben Main also captured a Bronze in the 14 year old boys 400 IM and Theo Mohamed collected a Silver medal in the 13 year old boys 1500 Free.
Achieving 100% best times over the weekend were Cayle Cronquist, Ben Main and Theo Mohamed. "We have a young group of swimmers who are showing great improvements, and with the experience gained this past weekend we are sure to see some exciting results throughout the rest of the season" explains Hitchcock.
Next up for the AquaJets are the Western Canadian Championships in Saskatoon where 5 Jets will be competing followed by 12 swimmers off to Victoria for AAA Provincials. For more information visit the Jets online at www.kelownaaquajets.com.
