Personal bests for Agassiz Harrison swimmers

Aquanauts all earn personal times at Kristy Hatt Memorial Swim Meet in Agassiz

The annual Kristy Hatt Memorial swim meet was held over the weekend in Agassiz. There were over 300 swimmers from the Fraser Valley who donned their swim suits and gum boots to participate. The Agassiz Harrison Aquanauts say they could not have hosted such a successful meet if were not for their volunteers and corporate sponsors.

The swim meet was a great experience for new and old swimmers. Since it was Fathers Day weekend, they held a Fathers Day relay and the representing dads were Detmar Schwichtenberg, Tom Forge, Holger Schwichtenberg, Phil Hardy and Jamie Lees. The kids cheered the dads on, and the dads had a new appreciation for their kids hard work.

It was a weekend of personal bests for the club. All of the participating swimmers had personal best times. They are  Bo Hardy, Lili Hardy, Martin Spaeti, Tomas Schwichtenberg, Bronwen Wheeler, Bentley McMullin, Mila Dinn, Morgan Sparkes, Brooklyn McMullin, Anton Stoeckley, Owen Inkman, Zach Wolter, Leila Wheeler, Dana Stoekley, Emily Kurtowski, Mark Schwichtenberg , Logan Sparkes, Kian Johnson, Daniel Chrenko, Veronica Chrenko, Owen Quintana, Meka Quintana, Philip Schwichtenberg, Alex Schwichtenberg , Leif Forge, James Ibister, Emily Bestwick, Jaydin Lees, Taylor Lees, Henrietta McInroy, Rachel Deschenes and Justine Stoekley.

Myles Wheeler captured first place in 50m breaststroke and third place in 100m freestyle. Even the club’s coaches, Jenn and Leanne Bodnar, raced this weekend.
