Three swimmers from the Trail Stingrays Swim Club had great performances at the Provincial Swim championships in Kamloops on the weekend.

“Diego Greenwood, and assistant coaches Madison Green and Jennifer Chung competed and despite the small number, the Stingrays represented the Kootenay team with pride,” said Stingrays coach Samme Beatson in an email. “All three athletes swam phenomenal races.”

In Girls “O” Category 2, Jennifer Chung picked up two bronze medals in the 50-metre butterfly with a time of 30.28 seconds, and the 100-m breast with a time of 1.20.01, narrowly missing out on silver by eight-one-hundredths of a second in the fly and a mere three-one-hundredths in the breaststroke.

Chung swam  best times and made ‘A’ finals in all four of her races that included two fourth-places finishes in the 200 Individual Medley and 50-metre freestyle.

Green went head-to-head with Chung in the 50-free where she placed first in the preliminaries, but had to settle for bronze in the final. She finished with a sizzling 28.21 seconds but was out-touched by White Rock swimmer Katherine Toy by four-one-hundredths of a second. Green swam best times and made the finals in all four of her events.

Greenwood, meanwhile, took off time in all four of his races, making ‘A’ finals for his Div. 5 boys 100-m backstroke and placing seventh in the province with an amazing time of 1:07.96, two seconds faster than his time at the Regional meet. Greenwood also brought home a silver medal from the Div. 6 Regional relay team, a 200-m medley relay swam with the fastest of the region in each division.
