The Williams Lake Blue Fins are off to Kamloops this weekend for the Kamloops Classic Swimming Club’s MJB Law Classic Dec. 14-16.
Blue Fins coach Chad Webb said the club has 23 swimmers attending the meet — the largest number to attend in years.
“Our goal is to finish in the top 10 — we were 14th last year — and try to make second swims into finals,” Webb said.
“The meet has more than 500 swimmers from some of the best clubs in Western Canada with the University of Calgary and many Vancouver teams attending.”
Webb said the meet will be the first big test for the club and added he’s confident the work his swimmers have put in will pay off in the form of personal best swims.
“Our goal at this point in our season is to move up in our rankings and place as many swimmers as possible in the top 16 for second swims,” he said.
“The swimmers will have a short break after this for Christmas and then will get ready for provincial trials and provincials in February and March.”
The Blue Fins will host its annual swim meet in March, just before Spring Break.
