The Cranbrook Triton Swim Club started their season off with a HUGE splash!

The club attended Lethbridge this past weekend and made some huge swims. The club was pleased to take 17 swimmers to the meet with 350 swimmers from around southern Alberta and was overwhelmed with the times the swimmers made in the pool and their placings as a team and individually. The club placed 5th out of 11 teams in the girls division and 7th out of 12 in the boys.

These placing don’t reflect the fact that the Tritons were one of the smallest clubs there and the ONLY one without a pool to train in.

The swimmers in attendance were Blake Archibald, Sydney Archibald, Raife Dunwell, Quinn Featherling-Craig, Halle Foxworthy, Jackson Hanson, Angelique Lalande, Shelby Lehmann, Trapper Pillet, Paige Relkoff, Katelyn Schlichting, Lilli Teneese, Bradie Young, Tegan Young, Carl Zandbergen, Leah Zandbergen, and Sonya Zandbergen. Every swimmer achieved best times in multiple races, with several improving in all 7 of their races.
