Three Kitimat Marlin swimmers were among 400 swimmers to compete at the AA Provincial Championships held in Chilliwack.

Each Marlin swam eight events plus two relays over this three day championship.

All three had some great swims with each one making at least one final (top 8 swimmers in each event swim a final to determine 1st through 8th) in an individual event.

Paige Collier (13) helped the region’s 13-14 girls freestyle relay win a silver medal.

The team comprised of one swimmer from each of Prince Rupert, Terrace, Smithers and Kitimat.

Paige also made the final in the 13-year-old girl 100 metre freestyle finishing 7th overall.

Kleanza Cathers, competing in the 11-year-old girl category, finished in the top eight in a whopping five events over the weekend.

She finished 4th in the 200 metre freestyle making a charge in the last length only to be just out touched for the bronze medal by a mere 4100ths of a second.

She finished 5th in the 800 freestyle, 6th in the 200 backstroke, 7th in the 100 backstroke, narrowly missing her first AAA provincial time in that last event by 610ths of a second, and 8th in the 50 free.

Danika Howell (11), competing in her first provincial championships, had some great results.

She just missed a bronze medal and her first AAA provincial time in the 50 metre free placing fourth in the event. She also made the final in the 200 free finishing 7th.
