Nelson Neptunes take fifth

The Trail Stingrays hosted the meet which had a different design than any other meet the Neptunes will experience this season.

The Nelson Neptunes took fifth place overall in the team standings after a solid showing in their third meet of the season.

The meet, hosted by the Trail Stingrays, had a different design than any other meet the Neptunes will participate in this season.

The first meet took place in the morning and was considered to be the preliminaries where the swimmers would advance to compete in the finals later in the day if they placed in the top eight of their age group.

“Although it wasn’t our best placing this year, the format of the meet was new to the Neptunes as we did not have a season last year,” said Neptunes assistant coach Rebecca Afford.

A number of Neptunes had a stellar weekend putting up meet records and taking top spot in a number of races.

Cameron Bibby-Fox was picked to represent the Neptunes for the Male Australian start 50-meter freestyle race taking first place.  For the girls Chloe Malefant was selected for the same race taking third. Meet records went to Riley Andrusak for her swims in the 25-meter backstroke and 25-meter freestyle.

Aggregate medals went to Jaylen Rushton who took the silver medal representing the division two girls.  For the division five girls Nava Sachs won bronze.

The next swim meet for the Neptunes will be in Creston on June 21 and 22.

Extra Lap:

In the coaches competition Neptunes’ head coach Cynthia Pfeiffer took a meet record for her efforts in the 100 meter backstroke.

Assistant head coach Rebecca Afford took bronze in the division eight women while Pfeiffer earned gold.
