Phillips at provincials

Terrace Blueback swimmer Brayden Phillips travelled to the AAA provincial championships in Vancouver, gaining a wealth of experience.

Terrace Blueback swimmer Brayden Phillips recently travelled to the AAA provincial championships in Vancouver, gaining a wealth of experience he can use next year.

“I’m pleased with his results,” said coach Mike Christensen. “He had a great opportunity to go through a number of new experiences including: competing at the highest level provincially, competing in an outdoor pool, competing head-to-head with athletes a year older than him, and extending his training season by a month longer than in previous years.”

He still has one more year in his age category, 11 and under, and looking at the other 10-year-olds who competed he finished 4th – 200 Breast, 4th – 50 Free, 5th – 200IM, 2nd – 400IM, and 5th – 100 Breast.

“He is solidly on track for next season,” said Christensen, noting the fresh perspective high level competitions provide young athletes, as well as future confidence gained knowing they belong in that elite group.
