Smelling blood in the water, the Pass Piranha Swim Team put on their best performance of the year at the Crowsnest Community Swimming Pool on July 15 and 16.

Despite the cold and rainy weather the team walked away with over 50 personal best times.

“We did really well,” says Piranhas swim coach Cole Midtdal. "We had a number of our top swimmer disqualified for false starts. Zoe Civitarese would have won a first place in one of her events without the false start and Quinn Douglas would have had three extra first place finishes. They were racing. It's good to get those false starts out of the way before our Regional Championships at the begining of August."

The Crowsnest swimmers range in age from their mid forties, to just above toddler. One of the weekend’s competitors was just three-years old.

Eight teams and about 205 swimmers from all over Southern Alberta participated in the Crowsnest Pass Piranhas Invitational.
Many of the Piranhas were participating in their first competitive swim and everyone came out a winner for just participating.
