Even though the Nelson Neptune Swim Club came home from provincials without any medals, head coach Michelle Lorusso said the swimmers finished the season on a high note.
“I feel that our swimmers finished the season well with most of them achieving their goal or making it into finals and consolations,” she said.
Melissa Afford came in 15th in the 50 metre butterfly.
Samuel Matthew took 13th place in one race and eighth in the 50 metre breast stroke.
Rebecca Afford came in eighth and Kiandra McLaren took 14th in the 100 metre breast stroke.
Jakob Brager came in 12th in the 50 metre freestyle.
Afford said the region took home 20 medals over all.
“It is always hard to go down to the coast and compete against other regions as there is much more competition there than there is in the Kootenays for some of these kids,” she said.
“Quality over quantity seemed to be our theme this season, and our team really impressed all the coaches this summer and proved that.”
