Marlins the better team in the end

The club placed second behind the Otters and ahead of the Prince Rupert Aquatic Club

The Marlin Swim Club placed second at the Bulkley Valley Otters Regional Invitational meet behind the winners the Otters on the weekend of February 25.

The 11 Marlin athletes, Gracie Baker, Kate and Cara Byrne, Nolen Knox, Kamryn O’Neil, Anais Ramos-Gadbois, Alexa Rigoni and Grayden and Abbee Rusconi, travelled to Smithers to compete in the meet.

The club placed second behind the Otters and ahead of the Prince Rupert Aquatic Club.

The Otters won by numbers but were often outcompeted by the Marlins in individual events, and several Marlins won aggregate medals in their age categories.

In the 8-and-under category, Cara Byrne won gold. In the 9-10 age group, Kamryn O’Neil won bronze. In the 11-12 age group, Kate Byrne won gold and Anais Ramos-Gadbois won silver.

In the 13-14 age group, Alexa Rigoni won silver. This was Alexa’s first swim meet.

On the boys’ side, in the 11-12 age-group Grayden Rusconi won gold, and in the 13-14 age group, Nolen Knox also won Gold.

The Marlins look forward to their next meet in Prince George at the end of April and the club’s home meet in May.
