Three members of the Williams Lake Blue Fins came away from the Swim BC ‘AAA’ Short Course Championships in Victoria with good results, said head coach Chad Webb.
Coral Choi swam her way to two top-eight finals in the 50-metre and 100-metre breaststroke.
“Although Coral placed higher last year in her one event, she managed to swim her way into two finals this year placing eighth in the 50-metre freestyle and sixth in the 100-metre breaststroke,” Webb said.
Madison Blusson also found herself swimming in the top-eight final of the 200-metre breaststroke on the first night, and narrowly missed the 100-metre breaststroke on the final evening.
“Madison finished eighth in the 200-metre and missed the 100-metre by less than half a second,” Webb said.
Kara Zavitz finished higher than she entered the meet, but also narrowly missed getting a swim in any finals.
Webb, who was making the trip to Quesnel a few times a week with the swimmers in preparation while the Sam Ketcham Pool was closed, said he was pleased with the results. The meet played host to the top 700 swimmers in the province.
“Williams Lake swimmers are heading in the right direction and showed some great improvement in all of their swims,” he said.
