Four swimmers represented Sylvan Lake at a mini meet designed for swimmers learning how to compete on Dec. 10. Isabelle Fraser, Rauri Slimmon, Samantha Lorenze, and Kaitlyn Dicaire all had a great showing at the meet, which was held in Olds.

Last month, members of the Sylvan Lake Swim Club attended a meet in Calgary at the Calgary Winter Club. All swimmers did well in their events.

Megan Abram improved by more than 10 seconds in the 100m freestyle and the 200 Individual Medley. Abbigail Bahler had her biggest improvements in the 50m backstroke and the 50m freestyle. Isaac Bahler swam well in all events, coming close to his MQT in the 200m freestyle. Reelan Baker swam four events and had a great showing. Ann Duffy had her best improvement in the 50m butterfly and the 50m freestyle. Sophie Ewanchuck improved by more than 13 seconds in the 50m freestyle. Justice Fancie swam well in all events and had personal best times in four out of six events. Capri Fraser had her biggest success in the 200m freestyle, showing an improvement of more than 13 seconds. Jayden Hiebert swam four events and showed great improvement in skills. Travis Lorenze swam with great enthusiasm throughout. Elizabeth Moore came first in all her events, having the greatest improvement in her 100m freestyle and winning the 100m Individual Medley eliminator at the end of the meet. Nicholas Moore performed well and had his greatest improvements in the 100m and 50m freestyle. Paige Sapergia competed for the first time and showed great promise in competition. Mackenzie Siemens performed well, showing her best improvement in the 100m breaststroke with an improvement of more than 14 seconds. Lexi Sparrow placed first in the 100m freestyle. Zachary Zoerb had a good showing as well with his biggest improvement in the 50m backstroke.

Shelby-Lynn Battenfelder, Hayden Becker, Tegan Calen, Jayden Hiebert, Breckyn Lagoutte, Travis Lorenze, Kira Main and Zachary Zoerb all attended a 10-and-under meet in St. Albert last month. It was a great meet designed for newer swimmers to the swim club that allowed them a chance to compete in shorter races along with a chance to try a meet qualifying event.

All swimmers did really well and had a great time.
