Nelson Neptunes set to hold annual swim meet in Salmo

Seven teams will compete at the event Saturday and Sunday at Salmo Pool.

Nelson Neptunes athletes practise in the pool. The team is hosting is annual swim meet this weekend in Salmo.

The Nelson Neptunes are pleased to announce that they will be holding their annual swim meet in Salmo this year due to the closure of the Nelson Pool for renovations.

The event runs Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Salmo Pool.

Despite the struggles the team has faced over the last number of years due to pool closure the team is still swimming and excited about this upcoming meet. Come out and cheer on your local athletes as they compete against the six other teams in the Kootenay Region, the Grand Forks Piranhas, the Colville Sharks, the Trail Stingrays, the Creston Wave, the Castlegar Aquanauts, and the Kimberley Seahorses, for the Salmo meet title.

This is an exciting team to watch this season as even with a smaller number of swimmers they have finished in the top three at the other two A-meets so far this season, missing a first-place finish in Trail by only seven points.

The event marks the Neptunes’ 47th meet in their 50 years of existence.
