The Pass Piranhas Swim Club made its way to Lethbridge on the August 7 weekend to take part in regional competition. A total of 14 young local swimmers took part in a field of 250 swimmers from across southern Alberta, and 10 Piranhas qualified for provincials, which were scheduled in Edmonton on the August 14 weekend.
Connor Beagrie qualified in boys 14&U 800m Free and in boys 13&14 100m Fly. Samantha Bleich qualified in girls 9&10 25m Fly.
Keiran Douglas qualified in boys 11&12 50m Back and 100m Fly. Lyndon Ewen qualified in boys 8&U 25m Back.
Kennedy Michalski qualified in girls 8&U 25m Fly, 100m IM, and 50m Breast.
The relay team of Jasmine Sydora, Abby-Anne Hughes, Samantha Bleich, and Kennedy Michalski qualified in girls 9&10 100m Medley Relay and 100m Free Relay.
The team of Zachary Michalski, Nathan Sydora, Alex Ewen, and Keiran Douglas qualified in boys 11&12 200m Medley Relay and 200m Free Relay.
Coach Lisa Sygutek says that these accomplishments are especially noteworthy when you account for the fact that all of the swimmers are in the bottom of their age categories, swimming against many older athletes.
She says that she and the other coaches –– Karen Hughes, Lyle Douglas, and Liz Rypien –– are extremely proud of everyone’s performance. She says that every single swimmer they brought to regionals placed in the finals of their events.
In addition, Connor Beagrie, Keiran Douglas, and Lyndon Ewen qualified for the regional relay team, as the fastest swimmers in the zone for particular styles of swimming.
In addition, Ethan Ballak qualified in boys 9&10 50m Fly, but is unable to travel to take part in provincials.
