Nelson Neptunes finish in fourth place in Grand Forks

The Nelson Neptunes swim club travelled to Grand Forks last weekend and finished fourth in the Boundary city’s annual “B” meet.

The Nelson Neptunes swim club travelled to Grand Forks last weekend and finished fourth in the Boundary city’s annual “B” meet.

“Considering it was a small pool and a timed finals meet, the results were very good,” said Neptunes coach Andre Kudaba. “The enthusiasm put forth by the swimmers on Saturday is making me look forward to the competition in Trail this weekend.”

The swimmers that compete in this meet have times that fall in the B section of the A/B time cut off. This allows the swimmers that do not generally get aggregate medals to have the chance to do so.

Those taking home medals from Grand Forks included: Olivia Cowan,  gold (division 3 girls); Nava Sachs, bronze (division 4 girls); Emma Borhi, gold (division 5 girls). Cowan also set a new meet record in the 50 m backstroke with a new time of 42.16 (old time was 42.30).

The host club topped the overall  team standings with Castlegar finishing second.
