Trail Stingrays have a blast at Colville swim meet

The Stingrays will compete in the Castlegar swim meet this weekend.

The Stingrays had a blast at the annual Colville Swim Meet last weekend.

As well as great results in the outdoor pool, the Colville meet is especially well known for its epic water fight in its downtown park that is opened for camping for visiting clubs. This year was no exception as kids and parents ran around the park for three hours blasting each other with water guns Saturday.

In the pool, the Stingrays also had a blast and continue to improve as the summer progresses, swimming best times in many of their races.

Cassidy Martin won gold in Div. 6 girls, while Elijah Grebe nabbed second in boys, Diego Greenwood claimed second in Div. 4 boys, and Josie Dunham placed third in Div. 1 girls. Sam Theobold won bronze in Div. 6 girls, and Logan Blair came third in Div. 4 boys.

Obie Kennedy swam a personal best taking 10 seconds off the 50-metre fly, while Isabella Ady slashed 15 seconds off her 50 backstroke, and Ellie Knox swam best times in all her events.

Logan blair participated in the “Guts and Glory” 400 IM and placed second with a time of six minutes and 50 seconds.
