The Terrace Bluebacks brought home five medals from a swim meet in Smithers March 10-11.

Coming in fourth out of four clubs, the Bluebacks achieved 70 per cent best times overall.

Coach Nesia Bare said there was lots of energy and excitement from 17 Terrace swimmers during the swim meet.

Improving their time on all swim events were Cameron and Courtney Chanin, Brayden Phillips, Angelina Filtziakis, Falyn Gottschling and Emma Hodgkinson.

“My highlight of the weekend was being a part of the kids’ excitement as they reached their personal best times,” Bare said, explaining the swimmers work very hard day after day in practice to achieve this goal.

Ainslie Hollett received bronze in the girl’s 10 and under. In the girl’s 12-13 events, Brittney Alfred won bronze, as did Anke de Wit, and Courtney Chanin won silver.

Caleb McGrath Burke won a silver medal in the boy’s 13-14 events.

Next for the Bluebacks will be a swim meet in Prince George in April.
