Three swimmers from Liquid Lightning Swim Club wrapped up their swim season last weekend at the B.C. AA Long Course Championships in Victoria. Coach John Douglas was pleased with the swimmers' results and enthusiasm at the competition.

Emma Andreen, 14, placed fourth in 800 meter freestyle with a time of 11:00.13. Andreen also placed fifth in 200 meter freestyle with a personal best time of 2:27.73; and seventh in 200 meter individual medley with a time of 2:52.01.

Sara Roggeveen, 13, dropped over six seconds off her 200 meter breaststroke time for a new time of 3:34.94.

Hallie Jenkins, 10, was one of the youngest swimmers at the championship meet. Jenkins competed in five different events including 200 meter freestyle.

Liquid Lightning will attend three more competitions during this swim season. In July, swimmers will compete at the BC AAA Championships in Vancouver, and the Canadian Senior Nationals and Canadian Age Group Championships in Montreal.
