The Kootenay swim club had two swimmers attend the annual AA BC Provincial long course championships in Kamloops this past weekend.

Brianne Mager and Stevie McCulloch represented Nelson and Castlegar under the banner of CKSC. After training hard all winter for this meet both swimmers entered six events.

After achieving time standards set out by Swim BC and Swim Canada to qualify for the long course AA Championships, McCulloch brought home the gold in the 200-metre individual medley, 100 freestyle and 200 freestyle and finished fifth in three other events, missing the podium by seconds in each of the other races.

Mager and McCulloch will be joining swimmers from Fernie and Cranbrook to represent Zone 1 at the BC Summer Games in Abbotsford in July and are hoping to repeat the gold performances.
