JODI QUINLAN – GAZETTE CONTRIBUTOR
Jonathan Colp, Eric Palmer and Nicole Quinlan of the Fort Macleod Sharks did an outstanding job at the provincial swimming championships Aug. 12-14 in Calgary.
The provincial meet features the two fastest swimmers from each region based on the regional finals, and four wild card spots, which has the top 16 swimmers from Alberta competing for the top spots.
It was reported there were just under 1,000 swimmers who qualified and attended the meet, making it one of the largest in some time.
Jonathan, who swims in the boys 15-17 category, shaved off just under a combined 50 seconds from his three events.
Jonathan placed 12th in the 400-m freestyle, 13th in the 200-m freestyle and 15th in 100-m freestyle.
Eric, who swims in the nine- and 10-year-old boys categories, placed 14th in 50-m freestyle and 15th in 100-m freestyle.
Nicole, who swims in the 13- and 14-year-old girls categories, placed third in 100-m butterfly, fourth in 50-m butterfly, 9th in 50-m freestyle and 10th in 50-m breaststroke.
It was the first attendance for Jonathan and Eric at a provincials meet and the Fort Macleod swimmers did a fantastic job. Great work you three!
It was a great finish to a successful season for the Fort Macleod club. Thank you to our coaches Sarah Gagnon and Caprice Rosentreter for their time and talents.
Thank you to all of the parents and volunteers. Without them the Sharks would not have the great season they did. The club looks forward to seeing you all on deck next year.
