Sea Wolves get feet wet in Kamloops

Ten members of the Pacific Sea Wolves Swim Club – seven of which were first-time competitors – were in Kamloops last weekend, competing at the Western Canadian Short Course Championships.

Katie Caldwell, 16, pulled in the best results, winning both the 200- and 400-m individual medley events, breaking the provincial record in the 200 IM (girls 15-17 division) along the way. 

Caldwell also competed in the women’s 16-and-over division, placing seventh in the 50 backstroke and ninth in the 200 back. Also in the 16-and-over competition, Olivvya Chow, 16, was 13th in the 200 IM.

In the men’s 17-and-over division, Thomas Rae, 19, finished 15th in the 50 butterfly, while Edwin Zhao, in the under-16 division, was 12th in 1,500 freestyle.

This weekend, a handful of current and former PSW swimmers will be in the spotlight at CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) championships, which are to be held in Calgary. 

Hilary Caldwell will be at the competition representing the University of Victoria, while Jy Lawrence (University of Calgary), Lynnaea Mulligan (McMaster University) and Kimberly Bowman (UBC) will also take part.
