Roughly 60 swimmers took to the Sam Ketcham Memorial Pool last Sunday to try their skills in multiple events at the Williams Lake Blue Fins Mini Swim Meet.
The event was strictly for local members of the Blue Fins.
“This was a chance for them to showcase their hard work and skills that they have been working towards,” said Blue Fins head coach Chad Webb.
“For many of these swimmers this was their first crack at a swimming competition.”
While the club’s younger swimmers competed in various events, the Blue Fins’ senior swimmers helped with mentoring the club’s future stars along the way, Webb said.
“This was the largest mini meet the club has hosted for many years and it has a positive outlook for the future,” he said.
This weekend, the Blue Fins are taking 15 swimmers to Kamloops to compete against teams from across Western Canada before the team takes a break for the holidays.
