Swim club shines at provincials
Despite being just a fraction of the size of some of the province’s top teams, the Semiahmoo Masters Swim Club managed to finish third overall at masters provincial championships earlier this month in Kelowna.
Semiahmoo, which has just 18 members, had 14 of them at the Okanagan meet, and finished only below second-place English Bay – which has 126 total members – and the provincial champion Okanagan Masters, who had 51 of a possibly 137 members competing.
The Peninsula’s other masters swim club, the White Rock Wave, had just one member at provincials, Kristi Martin.
Martin, 22, won four golds, two silvers and one bronze and also clocked a number of personal-best times.
