Four from Sungod swim in Kamloops

Delta swimmers compete at provincial championships

The Delta Sungod Swim Club sent four swimmers to the British Columbia AA Championships in Kamloops last weekend.

Three of the four qualified for finals in their respective age groups, and as a group achieved a best-time percentage of 84 per cent.

“For a group of athletes to attend their championship meet and achieve such a high number of personal bests is great,” said Sungod head coach Kurt Murphy. “The kids were mentally on their game and some of the best swimming was done at the end of the three-day meet.”

Albert Yu, 14, reached a pair of finals, placing fourth in the 200m breast stroke and fifth in the 100m breast stroke. He was also in the B final of the 1,500m freestyle, placing 11th.

Cory Bullock placed fourth in the 200m back stroke, and also swam in two freestyle B finals. The 14-year-old was 10th over 50m and 12th in the 100m event.

Maddison Lupien, 15, was sixth in the 200m butterfly. In freestyle competition, she was 10th in the 200m race and 11th in the 1,500m.

Megan Loshinin, 13, was 16th in the 200m freestyle.

Yu, Bullock and Loshinin achieved personal bests in every event they entered.

Three swimmers from the Sungod club qualified for finals at the Lower Mainland Regional Championships June 12-14 in Vancouver.

Bullock won gold medals in his 100m and 200m back stroke races as well as the 200m freestyle. He also added silver medals in the 200m individual medley and 400m freestyle, and a bronze medal in the 100m freestyle. His times in the 100m and 200m back stroke races qualified him for the AA provincial championship.

Sarveen Sangha, 12, was fifth in the 50m butterfly and sixth in the 400m freestyle. Aurora Zhegn, 13, was sixth in the 50m breast stroke, seventh in the 50m freestyle, and eighth in the 100m and 200m butterfly.
