Sylvan Lake Nauticals sent six swimmers in the 25th annual Poppy Meet in Edmonton Nov. 2 and 3. It was a fabulous meet and our swimmers did really well taking a lot of time off their previous best times.

Elizabeth Moore, 12, earned the aggregate medal for the most points in the 11-12 year old girls age group with a total of 63 points. Elizabeth won gold medals in 100m, 200m and 400m freestyle, 50m butterfly, 50m breaststroke, 100m backstroke and 200m individual medley. She also swam seven personal best times and broke five club records over the weekend. Great swimming!

Emily Girard, 10, swam in one of her last meets as a 10 year old as she is soon aging up. Emily had a good meet and came home with two bronze medals: one for 50m freestyle and the other for 200m freestyle. She also got seven personal best times. Way to go!

Zoe Dejonge, 10, swam seven personal best times and placed fourth in 200m freestyle and sixth in both 400m freestyle and 100m backstroke. Good job, Zoe. Keep up the good work.

Eliana Mulholland, 11, participated in six races during the Poppy Meet and earned six personal best times. She swam the 50m breaststroke, backstroke, butterfly and freestyle and finished off with 200m individual medley and 400m freestyle. Great job!

Lexi Sparrow, 14, one of our senior swimmers, had a good meet earning six personal best times out of her seven swims. Lexi placed eleventh in both 50m and 100m butterfly, her favourite swim event. Keep up the good work!

Michael Carson, 12, our only male participant, had a good meet getting three personal best times and qualifying for finals in the 100m butterfly. Way to go!

The next meet for the Nauticals is the Winter Cup in Calgary the weekend of Nov. 23-24.

Good luck to all our swimmers.
