TWSC Coach Bill Park brought a handful of talented swimmers, who had previously qualified at the Snowfest Meet in Kelowna last month, to the AAA event to compete against the very best swimmers in the province.
And when the four-day meet came to a close on Tuesday, the TWSC, with one of the smallest contingents at the meet, accumulated 543 points and came in 18th out of 40 teams. The Richmond Rapids ran away with the event netting 2,150.5 points to outdistance the Vancouver Pacific team with 1,554.
The Kormendy siblings once again led the way with Dylan setting a provincial AAA meet record in the U11 boys 800-metre free, and his sister, Eden, also setting a AAA meet record in the girls 12-13, 800-m free.
Dylan finished off the provincial swim meet with first-place results in the 800-m free in a time of 10:31.33 and the 400-m Individual Medley, 5:32.97. Dylan was out-touched by Michael Schmidt of Victoria, settling for silver in the 200-m IM, and another second-place finish in the 200-m butterfly. The Fruitvale swimmer added to his impressive totals with bronze medals in the 200-m backstroke, 200-m breast, and 100-m fly.
Eden, who is preparing for the Western Canadian championships in February where she will be looking to regain her spot at the B.C. Prospects Spring Training camp, brought home gold in the 800-m free with at time of 9:30.24 and the 400-m IM in 5:10.16. She took silver in 200m IM and bronze in the 100-m breaststroke.
Thirteen-year-old Aby Elwood saw her training payoff with a bronze medal finish in the 200-m fly with a time of 2:34.65. Elwood also set several personal bests and club records.
Jackson Konkin, 13, continues to get stronger in the pool. As a first-time swimmer in the AAA championships Konkin placed fifth in the 400-m free and set several new personal and club best times.
Martin Gonzalez, 15, set a new club record in the boys 50-m Free and 400-m free, while Samuel Matthew, 14, broke personal and club records in the 200-m IM, 50-m and 100-m breaststroke events over the four day elite competition.
Coach Bill Park has been working diligently with the TWSC swimmers since coming to Trail in September and is very pleased with the performances.
