Kootenay Swim Club set to compete in MJB Law Classic

The Kootenay Swim Club is hoping to end 2015 on a high note.

The Kootenay Swim Club is hoping to end 2015 on a high note.

The club will be among those participating in the MJB Law Classic in Kamloops, which runs today through Sunday and is the last short-course tournament of the year.

Logan Blair, Riley Mager, Brianne Mager and Stevenson McCulloch are each working on acquiring AAA times in order to qualify for next summer’s Canadian Age Group Championships, which in turn will qualify them for Canada’s under-15 team.

Club president David McCulloch pointed out Blair as a swimmer to watch. Blair set new AA times in the 100 free, 50 fly and 50 free at a Calgary meet in November.

“(He’s) probably our diamond in the rough because he just keeps blowing us away every time he goes into the pool,” said McCulloch.

Blair and McCulloch are already qualified for February’s SwimBC AA Championships in Penticton.
