The Williams Lake Blue Fins finished up their competitive racing season with four swimmers travelling to the Swim BC AAA Long Course Championships in Victoria July 2-5.
Ashley Beauchamp, Kara Zavitz, Cole Turner and Taylor Fitzgerald all competed after achieving qualifying times throughout the season.
Beauchamp raced her last meet with the team with some solid results and will now prepare for university next year, said Blue Fins head coach Chad Webb.
Webb said Zavitz, meanwhile, finished off a great year of racing, narrowly missing finals in her swims.
“It certainly did not take away from her impressive year,” he said.
Turner almost managed to qualify for finals in his 50-metre freestyle following the Swim BC AA Long Course Championships the weekend prior where he managed to qualify for the AAA event.
Fitzgerald was the lone Blue Fin to make a second swim in the finals managing a seventh-place finish in her 200-metre backstroke.
“This was Taylor’s first AAA meet and her future looks very good with the team,” Webb said, noting although there weren’t as many final qualifications as he’d hoped for, he was still happy with the meet.
“They are a solid group of swimmers that will just keep getting better and better,” he said.
“We lose Ashley this year but we have quite a few younger swimmers that will be here at this meet in the near future.”
The Blue Fins will now run two weeks of summer camps then take a break until Sept. 14 when they will hold their annual free week of swimming again.
