Terrace Bluebacks are climbing the northern ranks, finishing second in a regional meet in Smithers, Feb. 27-28.

“It was a real team effort to move up to second in the team standings, as we garnered significant points in our relays,” said head coach Mike Christensen.

“We have been rebuilding the club over the past 4-5 years and have finished fourth out of four teams in regional meets most of the time. We are gradually catching up to the other teams and the Smithers meet was one more step toward the top.”

Medals were earned by the three Bluebacks. Avery Back and Emma Kuirinlahti earned gold and Chloe Meek earned bronze.

Top points went to Avery Back (42 pts), Emma Kuirinlahti (40), Chloe Meek (31), Renzo Zanardo (28), and Madelin Berschaminski (27).

Best times were earned by Avery Back, Madelin Berschaminski, Sophie Coosemens, Brook Hansen, Juliet Lukasser, Madeline Willmot, and Oliver Willmot.
