TRAX Swimming: Thomas shines at Fall Classic

The Trail Regional Aquatic Excellence Swim Club competed against swimmers from across the Kootenay and Okanagan regions.

The Trail Regional Aquatic Excellence (TRAX) Swim Club plunged into the Kelowna AquaJets Fall Classic Nov. 21-22 at the H2O, competing against swimmers from across the Kootenay and Okanagan regions.

Just one week after most of the swimmers competed at the High School Provincial Swim Championships in Kamloops for both J. L. Crowe and Stanley Humphries Secondary Schools, the team managed to achieve some impressive results and multiple personal best times and podium finishes from Sharman Thomas.

The Trail swimmer captured gold in the 50 and 100-metre back stroke, claimed a silver in the 200-metre backstroke and bronze in the 50 and 100-metre breaststroke.

The TRAX Swim Club has a rigorous training routine which includes daily swim practices along with dryland and strength training in the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre.

The TRAX club is now focusing on their next swim meet in Kelowna in January where swimmers hope to qualify for either the AAA or AA Provincial Swim Championships.
