Sharks take a bite at Provincials

Swimmers with the Chatham Y Pool Sharks enjoyed success in recent winter competition in the GTA.

The Chatham Y Pool Sharks made a splash recently at the winter provincial level competitions in Toronto.

This year, five swimmers qualified to attend at two provincial meets. Caleb VanDooren, 14, competed at his first Ontario Youth Junior Championships at the Markham Pan Am Centre.

Competing at the Etobicoke Olympium for Winter Festivals were Francis Cooper, 9, Jake Leigh, 11, Declan Walters, 8, and Malakai Walters, 11.

Head coach Colleen Yee congratulated the swimmers on their hard work.

“Each year, the qualifying times have big differences, especially at eleven years old. These swimmers practiced hard to attain their goals and proved so, with many personal best times at the events,” she said.

“Two swimmers are aging up before our next provincial meet in the summer. They will need to push for these new times, in order to attend. We will work hard to give them the opportunity to qualify again,” Yee continued.
