On Feb. 4 and 5, the Kenora Swimming Sharks travelled to Thunder Bay to compete in the Northwestern Ontario Regional Championship with coaches Janet Hyslop and Beth Hendrickson.
“We had an amazing group of swimmers attend the meet,” stated Beth Hendrickson. “They swam their hearts out and achieved numerous ribbons, medals and personal best times.”
Emilia Mastromatteo received the High Point Award for 11/12 girls, and Gabe Mastromatteo received the High Point Award for the 13/14 boys.
This was a first regional championship for competitive swimmer, Jordan Sanderson, who achieved personal best times in all her races. Liam Kyle, Molly Johnson and Emilia Mastromatteo also broke many of their personal best times and made the team proud with their performance this past weekend.
Among our younger swimmers, this was their first major competition of the year. Lauren Lucas, Evey Kyle, Sophie Prepp, Kiera Lucas and Leah Derouard achieved impressive times throughout the meet.
“It was an awesome experience to watch these swimmers achieve what they did over the weekend,” said Hendrickson. “They swam hard, showed excellent sportsmanship and produced amazing results.”
The Kenora Swimming Sharks will be competing in Dryden on Feb. 25 and 26 for their next competition.
