Ryan Penney led the group with gold in 100 breaststroke, silver in 200 individual medley and bronze in both the 100 freestyle and the 200 freestyle.  Ryan also placed 6th in 50 freestyle and 7th in 100 backstroke.

Matthew swam in five events and achieved silver in the 200 freestyle.  Matthew also placed 7th in the 100 freestyle and 8th in both the 50 freestyle and the 200 individual medley.

Sydney swam in five different events and placed 6th in the 100 and 200 breaststroke.

“All five swimmers swam personal best times and their performances were impressive,” said Triton head coach Dave Chisholm. “Each swimmer should be very happy with their performances at this meet and the tremendous improvement they have achieved this season.  I am extremely proud of each and every swimmer.”

Mayes, Meuleman, Penney, Kenke and Jayden White are all heading to Nanaimo to represent the Kootenay zone and compete in the upcoming B.C. Summer Games.
