Bluebacks finish first
The Terrace Bluebacks swam their way to a first place finish at the Spring Wavemaker swim meet held March 12 and 13 in Smithers.
It was a total of 464 points, which put the Bluebacks in the top spot.
They were followed by the Bulkley Valley Otters with 455 points, the Prince Rupert Aquatics with 415 points, the Kitimat Marlins with 183 points and the Houston Aquatics with 57 points.
