The division 2 boys freestyle relay (Philip Schwichtenberg, Logan Sparkes, Anton Stoeckly and Myles Wheeler) claimed bronze.

The girls division 6 medley relay placed bronze with Leanne Bodnar, Taylor Lees, Jaydin Lees, and Justine Stoeckly. Girls Division 5 Freestyle relay consisting of Henrietta McInroy, Jaydin Lees, Taylor Lees, and Justine Stoeckly took bronze as well.

Four of the club's swimmers qualified for the provincial swim meet to be held in Nanaimo this coming weekend. Alex Schwichtenberg took bronze qualifying in the 100m breaststroke.  Leif Forge qualified in the 100 fly.  Leanne Bodnar swam her way into third place in the 50m freestyle. Myles Wheeler qualified with silvers in the 100m IM, 50m fly, and 100m freestyle, and gold in the 50m breast stroke.
